MSU baseball team focused on reversing course

Posted 4/22/2015 in College Sports

STARKVILLE -- Trevor Fitts and John Holland haven't given up on this Mississippi State baseball team. With the regular season winding to a close and MSU reeling from being swept by then-No. 8 Florida, Fitts and Holland were asked Saturday about MSU's postseason possibilities. "I know we are running out of games," Fitts said. "But I really feel like we're right there. I really like this team. I know we are not showing it at all times, but I think we've got a good team. If we put ourselves in such a hole that we will have to win the SEC tournament just to get a bid, then that's what we will have to do. I think we can do it."

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 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.

Posted 4/21/2015 in High School Sports

The numbers had been cleared from the scoreboard at Trojan Field, but they were still fresh in Lee Boyd's mind.

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.
