MRA wins MAIS 6A State Championship
Madison Ridgeland Academy defeated Hartfield Academy 42-7 on Saturday to claim the 2021 MAIS 6A state Championship Nov. 21 at Mississippi College’s Robinson-Hale Stadium.
MRA finished the regular season 11-3 and the achievement marks the first time an MRA football has held three straight State Championship titles and the fifth in program history.
“Three in a row. Wow!” said Herbert Davis head coach. “It’s pretty incredible. To look back four or five years ago and compare that to now where we’re sitting on a three-peat. It’s crazy. Never would’ve thought that would happen. It’s a testament to these kids. We work the heck out of them, but they take that challenge head on and here we are again. I can’t say enough about them. I’m proud of our kids, our program, and our school. It’s awesome. These seniors did something nobody in a MRA uniform has ever done before – win three in a row.”
