Scott Dedwylder's early dominance in the NeSmith Late Model Touring Series continued Sunday night with a $2,000 win at Magnolia Motor Speedway. The Vossburg native has led or been in second place in the NeSmith points race each week of the season. After starting sixth, Dedwylder rode a harder tire compound and an unfamiliar setup to the win. He finished second at Whynot Motorsports Park in Meridian a night earlier in a 50-lap NeSmith Touring race.

Preparing to host a regional never gets old for Ole Miss baseball coach Mike Bianco. "Each year, you are a little more excited," Bianco said. "In football, there are 105, 110 teams, and more than half of those (around 70) play in a bowl game. In baseball, there are 301 teams. The top 64 get this invite. That is special. I don't think you ever take this opportunity for granted."
