Hopefully, a few thousand Rocky Mount residents will make the trek to Chapel Hill to support the Gryphons in the NCHSAA 3-A state boys basketball championship game against Concord in the Dean Dome Saturday evening.
It is unrealistic to think that the city will just shut down for this event. There will be no rolling up the streets here.
That's why I am so glad that a group of area businesses have made it possible for those who cannot attend, or those who are, say, Rocky Mount alums that may be 3,000 miles away (like former RM athletes Bo McDiarmid, Class of '75, and Danielle Powell, Class of '92, who both live in the Pacific Northwest) may listen to the game - live!
Jammin' 99.3 FM WZAX Radio is not only broadcasting the game live over the airwaves, but it is streaming it live on the Internet. The link to the broadcast is: 99.3 Jammin 99 - WZAX
So to this glorious list of sponsors, Gryphon Nation thanks you!
