Patterson maturing into assertive floor general

Posted 12/14/2010 in High School Sports

CALEDONIA -- Yes ma'am, good things are happening for New Hope High School girls soccer.

Offensive line provided foundation for West Point

Posted 12/7/2010 in High School Sports

WEST POINT -- The tallest building starts with a strong foundation.

That's not the case with the West Point High School football team.

After three plays, West Point played its game

Posted 12/5/2010 in High School Sports

akenderic Thomas' 12-yard run in the first quarter was far from the biggest gainer of the evening, but it showed West Point wasn't going to be denied its seventh state title in program history. Led by 165 rushing yards by Thomas and 138 more by senior quarterback Justin Cox, West Point rolled to a 21-3 victory against Brookhaven in the Mississippi High School Activities Association Class 5A state title game at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Posted 12/5/2010 in High School Sports

Turnovers and missed opportunities typically spell the difference in games as evenly matched as these, and that's how the story played out at Mississippi Veterans Memorial Stadium.

Jackets' midfield trio cashing in

Posted 12/3/2010 in High School Sports

For every explosive run from midfield, there has to be someone to cover the empty spaces. One lane left open or one man left unmarked could turn into a defensive nightmare and a goal for the opposition. To play fluid, attacking soccer, a team must have a strong midfield.
