The Golden Triangle Regional Development Authority has hit its first bump in the road, but Clay Countyâ€™s economic development team will not be affected by a delay created at this weekâ€™s Starkville City Council meeting.
â€śEverything in Clay County is on track,â€ť said Joe Max Higgins, CEO of the Columbus-Lowndes Development LINK. Clay County has been in contract with the LINK since the Spring, and Higginsâ€™ team has been working to bring industry into Clay County since then.
Every game is critical at this point in the season.
Friday nightâ€™s district match between the West Point Green Wave (7-2;5-0) and Center Hill was no exception. Playing their fifth straight out of seven consecutive division games to end the season, West Point was looking to improve on a stomping of Saltillo the week before.
The Green Wave did just that, taking care of the Center Hill Mustangs 55-7.
The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (5-5;1-3) have certainly accomplished some of their major goals during the 2012 season.
Having not won a game since 2010, the Raiders got things off to a great start with two consecutive victories to start the year. One of those wins was a district victory against Winston Academy.
On Friday night, the Raiders played their last non-district game against Kirk Academy out of Grenada. Though Oak Hill had its troubles in the middle of the season, they are proving their resilience once again with a second straight win, a 34-14 notch over Kirk.
Hebron Christian returned home in the final game of the season as they played host to Humphreys Academy from Belzoni, Mississippi.
It was Senior night and six players received honors on the night; Will Corbin Rogers, Taylor Coggins, Austin Foster, Jacob Ware, Tyler Doss, and Ryan Moore. Also Senior videographer, Carson Williams, and Senior cheerleader, Heather Jackson, were honored during the nightâ€™s festivities.
