Diamond Eagles strand 13, fall in extras

September 1, 2010

The Hebron Christian Diamond Eagles out-hit the Lady Patriots of Marshall Academy on Monday night 7-3. When the final score was tallied, however, the Holly Springs team took the home win 2-1 in extra innings.
“I could tell in the first inning we didn’t come to play,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley. “We were slow with the bat all day. We weren’t striking out just were not driving the ball and there was really no reason for that except lack of focus.”

Police Vehicles May Become More Eco-Friendly

Several West Point police cruisers may soon be powered by propane fuel if the city is awarded the Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block Grant through the Mississippi Development Authority-Energy Division.
A special meeting of the Board of Mayor and Selectmen was held Monday night to discuss the grant program, which would allow some city vehicles to be converted to clean burning energy. It was determined that the only city vehicles that qualify for eligibility of the grant was the police department's eight new 2009 Crown Victorias.

Entire weekend turns out to be a success

August 31, 2010

I’ve had some exciting weekends in my life. I can remember going on some pretty memorable college road trips, great family vacations and even some recent vacations that were pretty fun filled.
None of those road trips, however, compare with the the 72-plus hours that passed last weekend.
The West Point Green Wave were scheduled to play their biggest regular season road game in years in Daytona Beach Fla. Friday night, and there was no way I was going to miss that.

Flemming leads Hebron past Lady Cougars

August 31, 2010

By Bryan Davis
Sports Editor
Last week’s loss to Starkville Academy snapped a four-game win streak for the Lady Eagles of Hebron Christian School. The 9-4 beating by the Lady Vols did not get Hebron down for too long though.
Last Thursday, Calhoun Academy came to town for a visit, and it was a short one. The Lady Eagles got back into the win column with a 17-1 victory over the Lady Cougars.
“I thought we played well,” said Hebron head coach Cass Tapley. “With 14 hits and seven of them being for extra bases, we seem to be swinging the bat hard.”
