Stillman's gem helps New Hope sweep Pearl

Posted 5/1/2015 in High School Sports

Josh Stillman knows his teammates have confidence in him. But every pitcher likes a little reassurance, especially in a tight situation. That's the dilemma Stillman and the New Hope High School baseball team faced Thursday night with a three-run lead against Pearl in the top of the sixth inning. Dalton Sullivan and Jeremy Johnson had singled to force New Hope coach Lee Boyd to call time to visit the mound for a chat with his senior right-hander.

Posted 5/1/2015 in High School Sports

CALEDONIA -- Talented is the first word that comes to Nicole Kifer's mind when she is asked about the Caledonia High School fast-pitch softball team. The senior outfielder isn't being cocky.

MSMS wants to continue history-making season

Posted 5/1/2015 in High School Sports

Cullen McDonough knows tennis isn't at the top of the list when people think about things associated with the Mississippi School for Mathematics and Science. MSMS, the state of Mississippi's only public, residential high school designed to meet the needs of the Mississippi's most academically gifted students, prefers to keep academic pursuits as the main focus for all of its students. But McDonough, Eliza Barrow, and the rest of the MSMS tennis team are doing their best to raise the sport's profile at the school. Today, MSMS will take on Alcorn Central in the third round of the Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 3A State tournament. This is the first time MSMS has advanced to the third round of the state tournament. Victories against North Pontotoc and Kossuth have helped the Blue Waves make history.

New Hope's Bardley signs with East Central C.C.

Posted 4/29/2015 in High School Sports

Jaylon Bardley waited ... and then waited some more. After receiving recruiting interest from East Central Community College in Decatur in December 2014 and then in January of this year, Bardley didn't talk to many coaches for what seemed to be the longest time. For a senior who wanted to play basketball at the next level, the wait was difficult.

 

 

Beard strong in circle for New Hope softball

Posted 4/29/2015 in High School Sports

Brittni Beard was back in the zone. Usually, the New Hope High School right-hander refrains from showing emotion when she is in the circle. Even though she is an freshman, Beard has been pitching for years and knows how important it is not to get frustrated and not to let the other team know when she is. That's why Monday was so difficult for Beard. Not only did she walk seven, Beard also hit two but persevered in a complete-game effort to lead New Hope past Vicksburg in Game 1 of their best-of-three Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 5A first-round playoff series.

Posted 4/28/2015 in High School Sports

WEST POINT -- Marion Bratton has been coaching long enough to know not to buck tradition. But the Oak Hill Academy baseball coach also has learned that sometimes it's better to do things differently if you sense an opportunity to lift the spirits of an individual or to snap your team out of its doldrums.
