The present educational conventions fade from our minds; and unhampered by tradition, we work our own good will upon a grateful and responsive rural folk. We shall not try to make these people or any of their children into philosophers or men of learning or of science.

It only takes a second for a team to win or lose a game. This statement always seems to hold true especially during the postseason of basketball, a sport known for exciting finishes.
The West Point Green Wave entered into the district 2 5-A tournament after a 14-11 regular season and going 3-3 within region play. The five-hundred district record landed the Wave as the third-seed in the region tournament at New Hope and set a date with Lowndes County foe, the New Hope Trojans.
The Lady Wave entered into the district 2 5-A tournament and were hoping to have good showing to start off the postseason. A four oâ€™clock start time left a near empty gym at New Hope High School as the three-seeded West Point took on two-seeded Oxford.
The Lady Chargers are a veteran team which pulls leadership from Clarion-Ledger Dandy Dozen Alexus Malone. A young Lady Wave had struggled with Oxford in the previous two meetings and dropped both games.
