For the last two weeks, the Diamond Eagles of Hebron Christian School (14-8; 4-0) have been cutting it close, playing nothing but one-run games. They have won some, and they have lost some.
What they needed on Tuesday night was a little breathing room for starter Chloe Tapley, who had to pitch eight innings her last time out. She did strikeout a season high 17 batters in last Thursdayâ€™s extra-inning win over Kemper Academy.
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.
â€śWe definitely need some soccer coaches,â€ť said recreation department assistant director Jarod McDaniel. â€śAnyone who has a kid playing is encouraged to come out and coach. Even if you donâ€™t have a kid playing and you just want to come out and help the kids, join us.â€ť
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 weekâ€™s contest at Leake.
