The West Point Parks and Recreation Department is in need of volunteers to coach soccer this Fall.
As the season cools down, football and soccer will heat up, and right now there is a shortage of soccer coaches in a league that is steadily growing.
âWe definitely need some soccer coaches,â said recreation department assistant director Jarod McDaniel. âAnyone who has a kid playing is encouraged to come out and coach. Even if you donât have a kid playing and you just want to come out and help the kids, join us.â
After falling at home in their first two ball games, the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (0-3) were hoping that they could find some magic on the road against Indianola last Friday night.
Unfortunately for the Raiders, whatever magic they had, they left here in West Point before making the trip.
Indianola gave Oak Hill its worst beating to date, with a 25-0 defeat of the Raiders.
It was a tough night to say the least, but it certainly does not spell the end of things for the Raiders, who still pack a lot of talent, coming into this weekâs contest at Leake.

It was an afternoon of fives for the Oak Hill Academy Diamond Raiders and their head coach, Marion Bratton.
Tuesday was Brattonâs 55th birthday. He was born at 5:55 a.m. in 1955. The game ended with an Oak Hill 6-2 win in the fifth inning, leading to a lot of high fives in the circle when the game was over.
âIt was a very sweet 55th birthday,â Bratton said. âIt was a great birthday present.â
The game ended on a time limit, just after Meg McBrayer sliced a three-run triple down the right field line to give her team the decisive win.
