MA to honor 1971 team
Marshall Academy will recognize the 1971 championship basketball team during special ceremonies January 27, 2012.
The players, their families and coaches are invited to return to MA as special guests that evening when the Patriots host public school rival Hickory Flat.
A reception for the group will be held in the cafeteria at 5 p.m. The varsity girls game will follow at approximately 6 p.m. and the varsity boys game will immediately follow.
Members of the 1971 championship team will have special seating for the game, and at halftime of the varsity boys game, they will be asked to come to center court for the unveiling of a banner to commemorate their outstanding season.
“This is the first time a boys basketball team has been invited back, and there is much excitement about this event,” said headmaster Jane Hubbard.
For more information, call Hubbard at (662) 252-3449.
