JH Jamboree great for Green Wave program

February 28, 2013

It has become an annual occurrence for the West Point junior high football teams and their fellow conference members as they met up once again on the football field for a junior high spring jamboree.
After a month of hard and competitive practices, the Junior Green Wave hit the gridiron on a cold and windy Tuesday evening in Starkville to put their talents on display against other teams. And even though the time of year is not traditionally a time for football, the players, coaches, and fans seemed more than excited to catch some pigskin action.

After making the first round of the playoffs, the Hebron Christian Eagles will be raising their expectations in the 2013 baseball campaign.
“Yeah, expectations are to make the playoffs,” said assistant coach Cass Tapely about the expectation for the season, “we want to make a deeper run this year.”
With a three senior looking to start, Hebron will also rely on underclassmen to fill in the other six spots in field. Yet the underclassmen will not lack experience as many of them picked up valuable experience in the past seasons.
