Wave to play district games at Oxford tonight

January 14, 2013

It was a difficult challenge for the West Point Green Wave to pick up a win Saturday against the Corinth Warriors. The Wave battled Corinth, a perennial power in north Mississippi 4-A, in Ecru at the North Pontotoc High School “Kings of the Court” tournament. A game that needed more than regulation to decide a winner, the Wave were on the wrong end of the scoreboard with an overtime loss to the Warriors 63-56.

Lady Raiders exact revenge on Marshall

January 7, 2013

Stan Hughey’s squad does not lose very much, and when they do, they take it personally. If your team beats them the first time around, the second contest could be painful.
