On Saturday evening, February 3, a special Hall of Fame Ceremony was held in the Rye High School Gym to recognize and honor four Rye High School basketball teams from 1956, 1982, 1991 & 1993 that won their State Championship Basketball games.

The event was organized by Beth Burns, RHS Assistant Principal/Athletic Director, Bobbi Ann Highberger and others. Former RHS students and basketball players were contacted for pictures, articles and information that they may have for display.

It was a wonderful ceremony and get-together where many hugs and memories were shared. The basketball playersí families, friends and many former classmates were there to share memories and catch up. Some of the former students from the 1950ís hadnít been in the RHS gym or the new school. The last time they were at a RHS basketball game was when all the grades, 1st through 12th were held in the same building, located where Table Mountain Church and apartments are now. Needless to say, they were amazed.
