Oak Hill softball tops Manchester 5-1, routes Central 12-3

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.”

Green Wave hope to end streak, top Jackets

September 9, 2011

Same week, different date.

History, fans hope, won’t repeat itself tonight when the two teams meet under different circumstances.
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.

Just four weeks into the season and the Eagles are 1-1 coming off last weeks 48-8 over Calvary Christian. Head coach Tri Nason said he’s a hard time on occasions trying to keep his team focused for this week because they are still excited after that first victory.
“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.”

“We found out who wanted to be here and who doesn’t this week,” head coach Benjie Merchant said. “We’ve had some good practices but we’re still searching for our identity.”
Mental mistakes on snaps as well as poor coverage and missed tackles have plagued the Raiders since week one.
