On January 25, 2022, Ringgold senior Nick Peccon broke the program’s record for three-pointers made in a season when he made his 52nd shot of the season versus Bethel Park. Peccon hit the record-breaking shot in Ringgold’s 17th game of the season and in his 152nd attempt during the campaign. Peccon eventually finished the season with 69 three-pointers in 193 attempts and he is now the Ringgold all time three-point leader in a single season.

The former record holder was Chris DeBerardinis. During the 1993-94 season, DeBerardinis only needed 119 attempts to set the mark at 51, but he played in 28 games. Coach Matt Rowland had nothing but praise for his standout letterman and captain: “Nick is exactly what every coach is looking for in a player. He works hard every day, wants to be coached and is always looking for ways he can improve and how he can enhance the team. Nick’s dedication and leadership to the team and program will long be a source of inspiration for future Ringgold players.”
Nick’s older brother Chris Peccon (2016-20) is the program’s leader in all-time three-pointers made with 124. The younger Peccon is in second place with 110 three-pointers. .
