“Senator Hyde-Smith and I could not be more delighted to rise this afternoon and recognize Mississippi State University and their baseball team on their first national championship in school history in any sport,” Wicker said.
“We take great pride in the legacy and inspiring example of these young men and their coaches. Thank you for such a wonderful and historic season. Hail State!” Hyde-Smith said.
The senators introduced a resolution last week in recognition of the team and its coaches. The Senate unanimously approved the resolution.
Wicker is an Ole Miss graduate, and Hyde-Smith is a Southern Miss graduate.
