Raiders hungry to get back on track

September 2, 2011

Oak Hill Academy isn’t off to the best of starts in 2011. The Raiders are 0-2 and have scored just two touchdowns this season.
Head coach Benjie Merchant knows it’s going to be a tough first season early on, but the question is how long will it be before they can turn things around.
‘We’re just not ready to play in that caliber of a game yet,” Merchant said in reference to last week’s 41-6 loss to Winston Academy.

WP ready for rivals Columbus

September 2, 2011

West Point is no doubt excited about tonight.

After a week long-plus layoff, the Green Wave hope to bounce back on the road and get a victory over Columbus.

The last time the two teams met it was the Green Wave riding a 24-6 victory back in 2009, the first of 14 consecutive wins for West Point on their way to the first of back-to-back 5A state titles.

Hopefully history will repeat itself.

Head coach Chris Chambless is just ready to get back out on the field.

Lions top MGCC 34-30, Cox shines in debut

September 2, 2011

SOOBA - What a way to make a debut.

Former West Point standout Justin Cox made a good first impression Thursday night swiping three interceptions, including a game saver with seconds remaining, to help East Mississippi topple Mississippi Gulf Coast 34-30 in the season-opener for both teams.

It was a special night for the Lions who were unveiling the new $4.7 million, 5,000-seat Sullivan-Windham Field.

But for Cox it was definitely memorable. He finished with three of the Lions four picks on defense in a game that lived up to the hype.

Home sweet home, WPHS unveils new floor for 2011

August 27, 2011

West Point Green Wave boy’s basketball coach Brad Cox gave the Daily Times Leader a sneak peak at the new floor that was recently completed inside the West Point High School Gymnasium.

The floor, which was built when the new gymnasium was constructed over a decade ago required it’s annual upgrade which is standard for hardwood floors that go through the wear and tear of basketball games and PE classes.

Over the years, layers of varnish buildup begins to make the flooring too dark and starts to change certain colors on the floor, like white to yellow.
