INGOMAR, Miss. (WTVA) - Ingomar basketball has a reputation for winning on the court.

It's a reputation that began when the 1958 girls' basketball team put on a display of dominance that hasn't been topped for more than 60 years.

"When the season ended, we were 54-0," Lazette Stevens said.

Fifty-four wins and zero losses. Grand Slam champions. Stevens was a member of that 1958 team, which had a little extra motivation going into the season.
