Hebron shocked the world on Saturday.
At the very least, the Lady Eagles shocked the world of Class A softball. Not only did they earn their first-ever berth to the Class A State Tournament, they defeated the Bayou Academy Lady Colts, something no team has been able to do in North Half Tournament play in five years.
They defeated the Lady Colts 1-0, after tearing through Deltaâ€™s pitching for a 10-0 win to start the day.

It took West Pointâ€™s football team nearly three hours to get to Indianola for Friday nightâ€™s district opener against Gentry.
It took the West Point defense less than three minutes to take control of the game.
West Point forced Gentry to lose 13 yards on its first offensive possession and then tackled GHS punter Rufus Warren at his own 15-yard line, giving the Wave offense great field position and setting in motion a dominant performance in a 34-8 win.

Two weeks ago, the Oak Hill Academy Raiders were staring down a long tunnel, hoping to see some sort of light. The 0-4 record in the standings was not half as bad as walking off the field after a 61-6 loss to Leake.
They had turned the ball over four times, resulting in four scores. The roster, already small, was dwindling due to injuries. Then a little over a week ago, there came that light.
