The Oak Hill Academy Raiders (1-4) brought their best play of the season to the Eagles’ field, and they defeated Hebron 46-12.

Last season, the Hebron Christian Eagles (1-3) and the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (0-4) started, what everyone hopes to be, a long-lasting rival series in Clay County.
Hebron traveled to Oak Hill in 2009, and they were sent away with a 14-0 loss.
This year, the Eagles will be hosting the Raiders, in a rematch, to see who wins the Clay County title in 2010.
Neither the Eagles nor the Raiders have a had a lot going for them in the first four weeks of the regular season.
The Eagles dropped their first two games, getting out-scored 79-6.

Last Friday night, the West Point Green Wave (2-1) were shocked in the second half of their contest against the visiting Starkville Yellowjackets.
The defeat not only put a blemish on the Wave’s 2010 regular season record, but it also marked the end of a 16 game winning streak.
Last season, the Green Wave opened with a loss to the Shannon Red Raiders.
After that, the team went on a tear across the state, winning its next 14 ball games, including a state title victory.

September 14, 2010

The first six Diamond Raider batters were set down on Monday afternoon, as Oak hill (12-8; 3-3) battled for a playoff spot against conference rival Winston. They eventually battled back to win 6-1.

After the first two innings went by without a whimper from the Lady Raiders, Winston paid for it in the third.

For the last two weeks, the Diamond Eagles of Hebron Christian School (14-8; 4-0) have been cutting it close, playing nothing but one-run games. They have won some, and they have lost some.
What they needed on Tuesday night was a little breathing room for starter Chloe Tapley, who had to pitch eight innings her last time out. She did strikeout a season high 17 batters in last Thursday’s extra-inning win over Kemper Academy.

Soccer coaches needed

September 9, 2010

The West Point Parks and Recreation Department is in need of volunteers to coach soccer this Fall.
As the season cools down, football and soccer will heat up, and right now there is a shortage of soccer coaches in a league that is steadily growing.
“We definitely need some soccer coaches,” said recreation department assistant director Jarod McDaniel. “Anyone who has a kid playing is encouraged to come out and coach. Even if you don’t have a kid playing and you just want to come out and help the kids, join us.”

Raiders to face Leake tomorrow night

September 9, 2010

After falling at home in their first two ball games, the Oak Hill Academy Raiders (0-3) were hoping that they could find some magic on the road against Indianola last Friday night.
Unfortunately for the Raiders, whatever magic they had, they left here in West Point before making the trip.
Indianola gave Oak Hill its worst beating to date, with a 25-0 defeat of the Raiders.
It was a tough night to say the least, but it certainly does not spell the end of things for the Raiders, who still pack a lot of talent, coming into this week’s contest at Leake.
