September 13, 2011

Oak Hill continued their winning streak Monday afternoon to three games with a 12-2 victory over Central Academy, a game that saw plenty of hits for the Lady Raiders including a two-run blast over center field by Lauren Hitt for the exclamation point. It was her first home-run of the season.

Back in business

September 12, 2011

Truth be told, West Point High School’s football coaching staff and players felt like they left a win on the field in 2010 against arch-rival Starkville, when a litany of miscues, mistakes and turnovers led to a 21-20 Starkville win in West Point.
There would be no mistakes this time.
Avenging its lone defeat of 2010, West Point used a dominating second half effort from its defense and a balanced attack on offense to earn a convincing 33-12 win over visiting Starkville Friday night.

September 12, 2011

Oak Hill used a three run second inning effort Friday to get their second win in as many games, downing Manchester Academy 5-1 on the softball diamond.
The Lady Raiders moved to 11-9 on the season and despite being out of the playoff hunt, look to close out the year on a high note.
“Pay backs are nice,” Oak Hill head coach Marion Bratton said. “They’re a good ball club, but they’re also young. If we don’t get them now, they’re going to be hard to get in the future. We have to take advantage of it when it comes.”

Starting out their own 46 yard line, the visitors needed just two plays to strike first when Jammie Jamison scored the first of his two scores with a 42-yard sprint to give the Mavericks an 8-0 lead after a two-point conversion.

September 8, 2011

The Green Wave have started 0-2 for the first time since 2000 while the Yeallowjackets are coming off back-to-back wins over Madison Central and Tupelo.

“There still a little bit excited, I’m trying to get them to forget it but they haven’t forgotten it yet,” he said. “Hopefully they’ll be calmed down a little by Friday.”
