West Point fans, youâve been summoned.
When the 2-0 Green Wave hit the field Friday night for their annual rivalry tussle with arch-rival Starkville, Green Wave head coach Chris Chambless has one wish: He wants the craziest crowd possible.

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.
