Two weeks ago, the West Point Green Wave football team was celebrating their second consecutive state championship, after defeating Brookhaven 20-3.
A week after that, the team sent two representatives to the Mississippi-Alabama All-Star game, along with head coach Chris Chambless, who served as the team’s defensive coordinator.
Tomorrow, West Point will have further all-star representation on the football field, as seniors Vontarrius Dora and Jaquille White head to Ocean Springs to play in the North-South game.

The West Point Lady Green Wave hoops team has been doing well as of late, sealing three wins in a row, leading up to district play.
That first district game is set to take place tonight, as the Lady Wave prepare to face Saltillo on the road.
Last Week, the girls hit the court for the first time against Noxubee County. Noxubee stayed in the game for all four quarters, but West Point prevailed in the end. The same was the case for last Friday night’s home game against Aberdeen.

Lady Eagles look to keep undefeated district record

The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles have been really good to start the 2010-2011 season. The only problem they have had lately is that they have played back-to-back games against two of the toughest opponents they might face this season.
The first of those contestants was the always dangerous Leake Academy girls. They were the first team to defeat Hebron this season, and they did that last Saturday.
The second defeat for the Lady Eagles came against a cross county competitor in Oak Hill Academy.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders got their first district win by default a couple of weeks ago when Winston Academy forfeited to them.
After falling to Manchester last Friday night in district play, the Raiders are looking to get their second credited league victory, but also their first on the court.
They will attempt to do this tonight, in a division match against Carroll Academy that will take place at Oak Hill.
