Mississippi State National Championship Trophy Tour stops at Margaritaville
On a day that Mississippi State announced a contract extension with Head Coach Chris Lemonis, the OmaDawgs sent off their national championship trophy for a road trip across the state.
The second stop on the Trophy Tour was right here on the Coast at Margaritaville. State fans lined up for a photo-op with the historic piece of hardware a month after the Dawgs won the 2021 College World Series in a decisive game three against Vanderbilt, bringing home the university’s first ever national championship.
Following a season for the history books, Bulldog nation is buzzing with excitement for the future. Incoming MSU freshman Avery Tate said, “It’s really interesting to see, especially we’re going to be the first class coming in to a school that now has a national championship. It’s really cool to actually get to see the trophy and experience all of the excitingness.”
The trophy will be in Lucedale tomorrow, home of State catcher Logan Tanner at the George County Multiple Purpose Room from 4 to 6 p.m.
