Coach’s state title ring stolen
Susan Rodgers, athletic director and head softball coach at Marshall Academy, is hoping for the return of her state championship ring from 2007.
Her home in the Deer Creek Road area of Byhalia was broken into on June 18. Several items were stolen, including the ring.
“It’s very important to me personally,” she said. “It has tremendous sentimental value.”
She said she appreciates the work of the Marshall County Sheriff’s Department on the case. If anyone has any information, please call the authorities at 662-252-1311.
