January 4, 2011

From Staff Reports
With gas prices soaring, Christmas just past and an already bad economic environment, some luxuries are going to have to go.
The West Point Parks and Recreation wants to give every child and parent who wants to participate in youth sports a chance to do so, and this week they are doing that by extending the deadline to pay for youth basketball sign-up.
“We’re extending our basketball deadline date to accommodate people in these tough economic times,” said Parks Director James Crowely on Wednesday.

“We’re trying to look at this tourney as a way to get back going,” said Oak Hill head coach Stan Hughey on Tuesday.

The Hebron Christian Lady The Oak Hill Academy Raiders are going to be back on the court this week for the first time since the holiday break. They will be showcasing their talents down at the Kirk Academy Tournament on Thursday, hoping to play both Friday and Saturday as well.
Head coach Brian Middleton says that his team has battled multiple illnesses over the holidays, but he’s hoping the extended rest will transmit into a refreshed Raider club come Thursday.
“We’re really looking forward to the second part of the season,” said Middleton on Monday.

Thanks to a good showing at the Immanuel Christian Tournament last week, the Hebron Christian Lady Eagles will not have to re-enter the basketball season on a two-game losing streak.
The Lady Eagles had been defeated by Leake and Oak Hill, consecutively, to end the portion of the season prior to Christmas, but they returned for two games in last week’s tourney and got two wins.
They will take that momentum into tonight’s match against Winston Academy.

On Saturday, the Mississippi State Bulldogs (9-4) finished off a fine season by capturing a 52-14 victory over Michigan in the Progressive Gator Bowl in Jacksonville, Fla.
Helping to put the icing on the cake was former West Point standout Michael Carr. Carr’s 31-yard touchdown catch late in the fourth quarter of the blowout might have gotten lost in the other six MSU scored on the day, but the score was more than just six points to the freshman.
It was Carr’s first career college touchdown.
