MSU's Alwal hopes new habits will pay dividends

Posted yesterday in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Martha Alwal doesn't like to talk about herself. That's why you won't hear the 6-foot-4 center discussing how she earned first-team All-Southeastern Conference honors from the league coaches and The Associated Press last season after leading the team in scoring (14.9 points per game). You also won't hear Alwal bragging about how she was named to the SEC's All-Defensive team for the second-straight year or how she shared its defensive player of the year award after finishing third in the league in rebounding (8.8 per game) and first in blocked shots (2.7).


Maturing New Hope softball team will play for North State title

Posted yesterday in High School Sports

From there, look out because the dominoes start to fall in all of the wrong ways and, before they know it, the Lady Trojans are wondering what hit them.


Raiders' Riley proves to be unstoppable force

Posted yesterday in High School Sports

WEST POINT -- Drew Riley is persistent. The Oak Hill Academy junior running back understands the notion you stick with something until a team adjusts or stops you. But nearly three days after one of his best rushing efforts of his career, even Riley admits he would have liked coach Tony Stanford to have called a different running play, if only to add a little variety to what had the feeling of a Bill Murray-flavored evening in West Point.


New Hope softball escapes quicksand at Warren Central

Posted 10/20/2014 in High School Sports

The New Hope High School slow-pitch softball team couldn't have allowed itself to sink in the quicksand Saturday. After suffering a 10-run loss to Warren Central in Game 1 of the best-of-three Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 5A/6A North State playoff series, New Hope could have thought things weren't meant to be and started to look forward to a long nap on a four-hour bus ride back to Columbus.

Hamilton's Heard learning to use vision to complement speed

Posted 10/14/2014 in High School Sports

HAMILTON -- Sprinters have one goal in mind: Get to their destination as quickly as possible. Sometimes, though, the quickest -- or easiest -- route to paydirt isn't a straight line. You often see that in football, when running backs, blessed with the speed to burn or to juke, stretch plays east and west in an effort to get to the corner. If they get there, all they need to do is hit the accelerator and dance down the sidelines to the end zone.

Posted 10/9/2014 in High School Sports

Don't look ahead. You can hear the caution in Kris Pickle's voice. It's natural for Pickle to be cautiously optimistic about how his New Hope High School football team has started the season. New Hope improved to 6-0 and 2-0 in Class 5A, Region 1 last Friday with a 53-35 victory against Center Hill. The victory helped push New Hope to No. 4 in The Associated Press Class 5A rankings. The win also extended the Trojans' best start to a season in at least 20 years.

So far, so good on that front. Vic Schaefer hopes his team will handle the expectations that it will face as it prepares for the 2014-15 season.
