Midland Lee celebrates 20th anniversary of National Championship

Local Sports

Members of the 1999 Midland Lee Football Team gathered Saturday evening to reminisce and celebrate the 20th anniversary of their state and national championships.

The team, along with the 1998 and 2000 Lee football teams and 1973 and 2001 Midland High baseball teams, was inducted into the MISD Hall of Legends this weekend, as well. All five teams won state championships.

John Parchman, head coach of the Rebels during their three consecutive state championships, said it was nice to see everyone and their families and look back on all the memories.

Justin Painter played on both the 1998 and 1999 championship teams and said it was neat to see how everyone had changed over the course of the years.
