Hampton’s 1973 win over Rockwood still resonates


A modest crowd figures to be on hand Saturday night to watch Rockwood play Hampton inside of VanHuss-White Gymnasium. It’s just another game on the schedule in 2013, but that wasn’t the case 40 years ago, in 1973.

Die-hard Hampton fans and players remember it like yesterday. There’s even been a few reminders this week.

There were only two classifications then, large and small.

The rankings came out in Class S, with Hampton earning the top spot. Rockwood was second.
