City Champs

Not having been a basketball fan (until now), I was unaware of the tradition that follows winning a high school championship. Each member of the team climbs a ladder that has been placed below the basket (the one with which the game was won), scissors in hand. A piece of rope is retained by each member and the remains of the net are bestowed on a coach or outstanding team member.
At the Philadelphia City Championship game last Friday night. The best team from the Catholic League battled the best team from the Public League and won in a hard-fought "nail-biter" of a game!
The boy wearing the rope necklace is a Senior who will be off to college in the Fall.
