August 1, 2011

Hebron Christian School kicked off the 2011 season with a loss, but quickly got their first game jitters out of the way this past weekend after going 3-1 in the season-opening tournament in Senatobia.

After losing to host Magnolia Heights 5-4, the Lady Eagles rebounded with a 9-0 win over Kirk Academy Friday, followed by a pair of victories over North Delta and Lee Academy (Ark.).

Oak Hill, Hebron hit the diamond on Friday

July 28, 2011

Football may be just a around the corner, but prep softball starts Friday for area teams.

Both Oak Hill Academy and Hebron Christian School softball teams hit the diamond to kick off the 2011-12 season.

Oak Hill had a few speed bumps early in the summer after a summer league they were slated to play in fell through, yet they still managed to play as a unit against several area teams for a home-and-home series. Because of summer camps and other activities head coach Marion Bratton had a hard time getting all the girls together, several of whom have never played under him.

“It was a great turnout, especially with the youth aged campers,” varsity running backs coach Josh Pulphus said. “They received a lot of instruction about academics, being good role models for other students and trying to stay humble.”
