STARKVILLE -- Freshmen aren't normally put in do-or-die situations at Dudy Noble Field. However, that is what Mississippi State coach John Cohen asked of Reid Humphreys when he went to the freshman infielder Saturday with the game on the line.
Jamierra Faulkner is a great player. The same can be said for Martha Alwal and Tia Faleru. For arguments sake, you could throw in Valencia McFarland and no one would argue she isn't one of the best women's basketball players in the state of Mississippi. Which player is "the best?"

CRAWFORD -- Jimmie Williams felt the need to accelerate his son's recruitment.

Lee Boyd isn't a big sabermatrician. But the New Hope High School baseball coach knows enough about history to realize his team faces an unusually difficult challenge this season. Part of the toughness involves being one of the state's most respected programs that typically gets the best game from every opponent. The challenges New Hope will face this season figure to be even harder due to the bull's eye on the team's back after winning the Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 5A state title.
