Penn High School dedicating basketball court to former coach Al Rhodes

ST. JOSEPH COUNTY, Ind. - Former Penn High School Boys Basketball Head Coach and player Al Rhodes will cement his place in Kingsmen history when the high school dedicates its basketball court to him during a special ceremony on Friday. 

Rhodes will be honored with the unveiling of the Al Rhodes Kingsmen Court at 7:30 p.m. during the Penn vs. Clay High School boys basketball game.

Penn-Harris-Madison School Corporation Superintendent Dr. Jerry Thacker and his wife donated $10,000 to the P-H-M Education Foundation to have it renamed in Rhodes's honor.

Coach Rhodes retired at the end of the 2022-2023 school year as the winningest coach in Kingsmen Boys Basketball history. He also played for the Kingsmen from 1966 to 1970.

During his tenure as head coach, the Kingsmen won 18 Sectional Championships, nine Regional Championships, four Semi-state Championships and one State Championship.
