When you hear of an 18-wheeler colliding near the highway with a van full of passengers, the thing that usually comes to mind is a horrific scene of severely injured victims, some of whom could have unfortunately been killed.

It was the second round of the 5-A playoffs Friday night, and a step closer for eight teams in Mississippi to make it to Jackson. West Point and Ridgeland laid it all on the line to get to the North State title game on the field at Hamblin Stadium on the campus of West Point High School.
The Green Wave from the beginning had full control of the game on both sides of the ball. West Point was hitting on all cylinders and went on to victory beating the Ridgeland Titans, 56-21.

After losing Tuesday night to Hamilton, West Point’s Lady Wave returned to the court to take on the Amory Lady Panthers Thursday night. In a game that West Point led in every quarter, the Lady Wave showed improved ability going on to win 54-38.
Coach Kendall Pickens understands that this was an important first win for his team and knows that it can be difficult to get that first win sometimes.
“We just tried to keep our tempo,” said Coach Pickens after the victory, “and we just had to do the little things so we could get the win.”

It was a very close one and it could have been any possession that could have decided the game between West Point and Amory. A last second A.J. Jones’ half-court shot rimmed out and saw the Wave fall to the Panthers 58-56.
“Everybody is going to look at the last shot,” commented Coach Brad Cox about the loss, “but honestly any possession of this game could have made the difference tonight.”
