Edmonson Voice Sports
Members of the iconic 1976 State Championship Team were honored in Rupp Arena this past Saturday, March 19, 2016 at this year's KHSAA Sweet Sixteen Boys State Tournament in Lexington.
This year marks the 40th anniversary of the "Cinderella Team" that won the hearts of basketball fans around the state of Kentucky.
A true underdog story, the 1976 team coached by Bo Davenport is still talked about today. It's unheard of for a school the size of Edmonson County to win a regional tournament, much less a state title. Edmonson County has not won a boys district title since 1993, which puts even more of an emphasis on the amazing feat accomplished by the 1976 state champs.
Team members and former cheerleaders were recognized during games on Saturday to a warm welcome of fans in attendance.
