Been putting off getting apparel commemorating the 2010 5A State Title, won by the West Point Green Wave football team?
The West Point Touchdown Club says that there is plenty of merchandise left, including short-sleeve t-shirts, long-sleeve t-shirts and hoodies.
The Club also has a supply of pink hats detailing the 2010 championship.
Club President Kenny Fowler says that there should be more products coming in the future, including hats and a DVD of the 2010 season.

Due to the Christmas Holidays and the harsh economic times, the city took steps last month to try and give parents a little more time to get their kids involved in the city’s youth basketball league that will start next month.
The original sign-up deadline, slated for December 30, was moved back to January 15.
That means that Saturday will be the final day to sign kids up for participation in the league.
The season was originally scheduled to start on Monday, but that date will likely be pushed back as well.

The Hebron Christian Lady Eagles were among many Mississippi basketball teams that were not able to improve on their district records earlier this week.
With a heavy winter storm’s snow and ice still on the roads on Monday and Tuesday, the Lady Eagles missed bouts with Winona and Calhoun.
On Thursday night, however, the girls should have any trouble getting down to Macon to take on another district rival in Central Academy.
The Hebron girls have already played and defeated the Lady Vikings once this season, back on December 2.

The Hebron Christian Eagles missed a pair of crucial games earlier this week, due to snow and ice, but they will be back on the court tonight to face district rival Central Academy.
Looking to improve on some already solid divison performances, the Eagles will face the Vikings’ team for the second time this season. The Eagles defeated Central in the first match.
On Monday night, the Eagles were slated to face Winona at home, and they were scheduled to play Calhoun Academy on the road Tuesday night.

West Point soccer is on the rise.
The Green Wave program may be young, but it is one that is developing each time the players hit the field.
Head coach Keith Manning is also a football coach for the Green Wave, and he wants to transmit what makes that program successful to his own.
“We have to build off our football program,” said Manning, whose boys team beat Choctaw Central on Thursday and narrowly got defeated by district rival Saltillo on Saturday. “We have to take their ideas and success and carry it over into other programs.”

This week’s winter storm caused many schools and businesses to close around the state. Athletic events were no exception to this either, as most of the early-week activities on the area schools’ schedules have either been postponed or canceled.
Tuesday is perhaps the busiest night of the week for all schools when it comes to sports.

The AA Carroll Academy Lady Raiders could not do anything with Tori Nichols on Thursday night. The Hebron Christian senior put up 25 points against the Lady Rebel defense, en route to a 58-33 win over Carroll.
Carroll was the second AA team that Hebron (17-2; 4-0) had knocked off this week, as they defeated Winston easily on Tuesday.
Hebron has a way of jumping out to a large lead and cruising in the later quarters. They did just that in this road game.

Malone’s free throws lift West Point over Bruce

The Green Wave had been in the situation before.
The game was tied, with less than 10 seconds to go. A foul was called on the opposing team, and West Point went to the line for two shots.
That’s the way it was against Houston a few weeks ago, and the Green Wave made both shots to win the game.
The situation repeated itself on Thursday night, against Bruce High School, at the Vardaman Tournament.
This time, it was Cortez Malone who was fouled, and he would go to the line for the crucial shot.

The Oak Hill Academy Raiders went into Friday’s contest against Indianola with a 1-1 record against the Colonels in 2010-2011.

The Colonels jumped on top for 16 points in the opening quarter of the game, holding Oak Hill to 14 points. Down by only two, the Raiders hung in there throughout the first half.
