Caledonia's Unruh hopes to attract attention

Posted yesterday in High School Sports

CALEDONIA -- Spencer Unruh isn't going to rush things. Like many high school student-athletes, Unruh plays multiple sports. If it is football season, football is his favorite sport. The same can be said for basketball and baseball when it comes time to play those sports. But if forced to choose, Unruh said football would be the sport he would play. This season could play a big role in determining how much longer Unruh gets to play football or another sport.

Posted 8/3/2015 in High School Sports

MACON -- Jeffery Simmons is on a mission.

Lovato helping MSU women build brand

Posted 8/1/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Elena Lovato didn't realize the impact five words could make. Early one morning after reading a devotional, Lovato decided to share her positive vibes with the world, so she typed 27 characters and hit send. The Mississippi State assistant women's basketball coach didn't give her message -- "Blessed to see another day" -- a second thought. It wasn't targeted at anyone. It wasn't designed to attract a following. Lovato merely wanted to get her day off to a good start, and she believed sharing her excitement helped her have a better outlook.

Posted 7/27/2015 in High School Sports

MACON -- Sammy Lindsey believes it can happen. One year after falling short of its goal to play for a state title, Lindsey feels the Central Academy fast-pitch softball team is positioned for a run at a championship. A strong returning class adds to Lindsey's optimism. The fact that the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools added a fourth classification -- AAAA -- in the offseason in an effort to create a more level playing field based on school enrollment numbers has created a path Lindsey feels his team will be able to navigate, even though it has only one senior, Courtney Gaylord.


Harris, Heritage Academy will count on seniors to lead way

Posted 7/27/2015 in High School Sports

A mother, a yeller, and a jester When you're looking for your seniors to play complementary roles, it's always nice for those players to have a variety of strengths that can help the team. Gary Harris has watched seniors Kaitlyn Oswalt, Brooklyn Waldrep, and Macy Walters for the past three years, so he knows how each player has matured as a player for the Heritage Academy fast-pitch softball team. This season, he hopes those players will help set the tone for a program that has advanced to the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools Class AAA State tournament two of the past three years.

Chisolm driven to help disc golf grow in Columbus

Posted 7/4/2015 in Local Sports

It's easy to detect the passion in Taylor Chisolm's voice. A few years ago, soccer would have been the topic of conversation. After all, Chisolm set a school record for goals in a season as a senior at Caledonia High School in 2009. His exploits helped lead the Confederates to a school-best 14-5 record and the Class 4A North Half title game. Since then, though, Chisolm has found a new hobby, or passion, to occupy some of his spare time. Don't think for one second that just because you might not have heard of the sport -- disc golf -- Chisolm isn't as passionate about it as he was about soccer. In fact, if you know Chisolm, he might be even more consumed with disc golf than he ever was about soccer.

Posted 7/1/2015 in High School Sports

Allison Woolbright can recall being in gymnasiums as far back as her memory allows. If Woolbright had to guess, that's probably where she developed her love for sports and her competitive spirit. It also helped that Woolbright's mother, Rachel Prater Meacham, worked as a volleyball coach at Millport (Ala.) and South Lamar high schools, which is where Allison honed her skills as a volleyball and as a basketball player.

Posted 6/30/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Jazzmun "Jazz" Holmes isn't going to let her relative inexperience hold her back. Going up against speedsters like Morgan William and Roshunda Johnson every day in practice should be just the test Holmes needs to make a quick adjustment to the Mississippi State women's basketball team.


MSU freshman Campbell focusing on getting stronger

Posted 6/23/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Zion Campbell usually is one of the tallest players on the basketball court. At 6-foot-3, Campbell has grown accustomed to having her way in the post, whether it has been at Riverdale Baptist School (Md.), St. John's College (Washington, D.C.) High School, or Hilton Head (S.C.) High. Part of "owning" the paint involves knowing how to throw your weight around and to bang bodies with opponents to get position for rebounds or to set yourself up close to the basket for an easy shot. It has taken only a few weeks for Campbell to realize she likely will have to try to new way to utilize her size to help her make an impact on the Mississippi State women's basketball team.
