Rockets to receive 2022 state championship basketball rings on Friday
PHILADELPHIA, Miss. (WTOK) - The 2022 5A girls basketball state champions will receive their state championship rings on Friday before the Neshoba Central football game.
The rings will be handed out at 7 p.m. before the Rockets host Holmes County Central at 7:30 p.m.
The 2022 state champions were the first team in program history to have a completely undefeated season.
Head coach Jason Broom said, “We decided when you’re 33-0 you’ve got to go big. So the first couple of samples felt like it looked too much like a class ring so we went bigger and bigger. I know the coaching rings are huge and we sized it down a little bit for the girls but I think it will be very representative of what they accomplished this year. So it’s exciting that’s what- it’s that little piece of something to hold onto for the rest of their lives because the trophy will stay here at school. They get t-shirts and stuff like that but the ring is something they’ll have with them for the rest of their lives.”
