New Hope will try to find 'it' against Caledonia

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

Michael Bradley and the New Hope High School football team are looking for it. With nine returning starters and plenty of experienced players from last season's 11-win finish, Bradley knows the Trojans still have it in the locker room.

 

 

Gutcheck time for Heritage Academy

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

It will be gutcheck time from here on out for the Heritage Academy football team. Judging from last week, the Patriots just might be on the move toward the program's first winning season since 2005. To accomplish that goal, Heritage Academy (3-1) will look to capitalize on the momentum it earned last week in a victory against Lamar School at 7 tonight when it plays host to Madison-Ridgeland Academy (1-2).

 

 

Columbus will try to build momentum against Louisville

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

One victory doesn't make a season. Tony Stanford hasn't had to preach that message this week because his Columbus High School football players haven't appeared to change following their first big victory of the 2010 season.

 

 

No hype needed for Noxubee County-West Point

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

Another week. Another rivalry matchup for the West Point High School football team. Not that coach Chris Chambless minds, but coming off a heart-breaking 21-20 loss to Starkville High, he knows the importance of bouncing back at 7:30 tonight against Noxubee County (4-0). Chambless watched his team blow a 20-0 lead against the Yellow Jackets, turn the ball over three times in the second half, and commit four personal foul penalties in the loss. Carrying that lack of discipline into district play, which begins in a week, isn't ideal for a team looking to repeat as Class 5A state champions.

Coaches feel past will help future for Oak Hill, Hebron Christian

Posted 9/17/2010 in High School Sports

The past is going to help the Oak Hill Academy and Hebron Christian football teams in the future. How the first four games of each team's season will affect their matchup at 7:30 tonight in Pheba remains to be seen. One thing is certain: Oak Hill Academy (0-4) and Hebron Christian (1-3) will enter tonight's game with many similarities. Both teams are expected to dress out less than 20 players. Both teams also have experienced their share of growing pains.

Cooper plays hard to lead Immanuel past Heritage

Posted 9/15/2010 in High School Sports

STEENS -- Meghan Cooper has a simple philosophy that serves her well on the soccer field: Always go hard. It's a message Ray Campbell has instilled in Cooper and the rest of the players on the Immanuel Christian girls soccer team. Add in some deft passing skills and combination play and a stingy defense and it's easy to see why the Lady Rams are having a playoff season.

 

 

Hebron Christian clinches district title

Posted 9/15/2010 in High School Sports

DeKALB -- Cathryn Moore and Magen Tapley had run-scoring hits in the top of the seventh inning Tuesday, and Chloe Tapley made it stand up to lead the Hebron Christian fast-pitch softball team to a 2-1 victory against Kemper Academy.

QBs make a difference for Starkville, Columbus

Posted 9/14/2010 in High School Sports

STARKVILLE -- Quarterbacks need to be poised in clutch situations. Good things tend to happen when a quarterback can hold his wits and lead his teammates. Jaquez Johnson and Cedrick Jackson proved that is true Friday night.

 

 

Columbus will be without key players against New Hope

Posted 9/13/2010 in High School Sports

Tony Stanford isn't sure if one week will be enough. The Columbus High School football coach will get a chance to see just how much a week off has helped his team when it takes on New Hope at 7:30 tonight. Stanford said Columbus (1-1), which had an off week last week, will be without sophomore quarterback Cedric Jackson and junior running back Damian Baker for at least another week. He said the Falcons also will be without sophomore running back/defensive back Quan Latham, sophomore linebacker Gemriah Williams, and senior defensive lineman/tight end Ian Williams. The players are out with an assortment of ankle or foot injuries.

 

 

Defensive stand turns momentum for Columbus

Posted 9/13/2010 in High School Sports

There was no doubt in Randy Brown's mind. Faced with the prospect of taking on a New Hope High School goal-line package on fourth-and-1 at his team's 20, Brown knew Columbus High would make a stand. There was no way Brown could see what would transpire after that stop.

 

MONDAY PROFILE: Starkville High's Mitchell finds a way to win

Posted 9/13/2010 in High School Sports

The Starkville High School Yellowjackets finished 4-9 last year and began this season with consecutive losses. The West Point High School Green Wave claimed the 5A state title last year, and was riding a 16-game win streak. There wasn't much reason to expect an upset when the two teams met Friday night in West Point. But that's exactly what happened.
