The jewelry box for the Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers is starting to get pretty full.
For the third consecutive season, the Lady Vols won the Class AAA-Division II State Tournament and they celebrated that accomplishment Thursday at The Little Dooey with a ring ceremony.
"It solidified our tradition," Starkville Academy girls basketball coach Glenn Schmidt said. "Instead of people thinking it's a one time deal, you needed to be ready to play these girls if you are going to play. We're just blessed and fortunate."
Schmidt spoke about that tradition to those gathered to see the Lady Vols get their rings. She became emotional when the comments became specific about the three seniors – Nora Kathryn Carroll, Maridee Higginbotham and Sallie Kate Richardson – because of what they meant to the team.
