It looks like the Santa Fe South soccer team will be getting its state championship rings after all.

Saints coach Wes Furley says the community came through with the $5,200 needed for the rings for the Class 4A state champion Saints. It was the first state title in any sport in the school's eight-year history.

Furley had been unable to buy the rings after the title game against three-time defending champion Cascia Hall because the team only had $200 left to spend.

The coach put up fliers, and donations started flowing in after a column was written about the team in The Oklahoman. Furley says he expects the rings to arrive in six or seven weeks.
