Columbus Christian baseball team loses playoff opener

Posted 4/22/2015 in High School Sports

STEENS -- History sometimes has its fair share of potholes that make navigating the road to success a little tricky. The Columbus Christian Academy baseball team encountered one of those obstacles Tuesday night in a 15-0 loss to Benton Academy in Game 1 of its Mississippi Association of Independent Schools Class A playoff series. The record will show that Dawson Shaw, LaQuinston Sharp, RJ Deloach, and BJ Shirley had hits for the Rams (11-6), who will try to keep their season alive at 5 p.m. Thursday in Game 2 of the best-of-three series in Benton. If needed, Game 3 would follow approximately 30 minutes after Game 2.

That's why Beard is almost to the point where she doesn't want to take a cell phone call from Miller, a certified athletic trainer who works with Rehab at Work in Columbus.


Extra plate work pays off for Caledonia's Burton

Posted 4/21/2015 in High School Sports

CALEDONIA -- Don't dismiss the benefit of a little extra work. Hope Burton knew she wasn't hitting like she wanted to, so she took Caledonia High School fast-pitch softball coach Robin Elmore up on her offer to stay after the game against Noxubee County High and take some more swings. Burton wanted to capitalize on the opportunity because she knew a game against Houston, one of the team's biggest rivals and one of the contenders in Class 4A, Region 4, was next on the schedule, so she wanted to be at her best.

STARKVILLE -- Martha Alwal still can't grasp the enormity of her situation.

New Hope's Stillman excelling in role of ace

Posted 4/14/2015 in High School Sports

Josh Stillman didn't need an adjustment period. Most pitchers would need several games to settle their nerves and to learn how to maintain their composure after being asked to move from the middle of the rotation to the front of the line. There's more pressure as a team's No. 1 starter. That title also earns a pitcher first crack at the best teams on a squad's schedule.
