It is shaping up to be a busy week for Oak Hill senior Maegan Ellis.
Like any high school Homecoming maid, Ellis is having to decide on a dress to wear during the festivities on Friday â€“ though her mother, Gigi, said one dress was already selected. The dress right now though is paired with a pair of cleats, an aluminum bat and a leather glove, as Ellis was selected to represent Oak Hill in the MAIS annual All-Star Softball event today at Jackson Prep in Flowood.
â€śWe do have a dress picked out,â€ť Gigi said. â€śThe only thing is can we find some time for school this week.â€ť
Though Ellis will have to find some free time for school work in a week that seems fully booked, Oak Hill Lady Raider head basketball coach and athletic director Stan Hughey is full of praise and confident that she is more than capable of handling the load.
â€śShe is one of the maids, sheâ€™s practicing basketball with that season fast approaching and having to go down to Jackson for the all-star game on Wednesday,â€ť Hughey said. â€śSheâ€™ll make it. She does a great job in the classroom and is a great student. We are proud and excited that she is playing in the all-star game. Unless something happens, I think Maegan will be the first two-sport all-star from Oak Hill in a while.â€ť
