The Marshall Academy Lady Patriot Fastpitch team travelled to Grenada last week to play in the North Half AA Tournament. Wednesday, the girls flew past Winston Academy, 7-0. On Saturday, they faced rival Indianola Academy. The first game was close, winning 1-0. Indianola battled up through the losers’ bracket to face the Lady Patriots once again in the finals.
With a final score of 3-0, the Lady Patriots came out on top, becoming the North AA champions. What an accomplishment for this group of young ladies - a shut- out tournament! Congratulations!
Tuesday afternoon, a caravan of Marshall Academy parents and fans headed south to spend the night. Wednesday morning, the Lady Patriots will begin their quest for their second State AA title, facing the #4 seed from the South AA division. Good luck to the Lady Patriot team which consists of Lauren Alexander, Heather Tomlinson, Traci Rodgers, Courtney Gibson, Casey Gibson, Anna Roberts, Mallary Covington, Chelsey Gilliam, Robin Bryant, Caitlyn Brooks, Maura Jane Autry, Elizabeth Skelton and Lane Cunningham, along with bat girl, Darcie Gibson.

Callicutt Realty, VFW enhance square
Seventy-one new American flags now adorn the square in Holly Springs.
The ladies of Callicutt Realty, led by Laurie Gwin, organized the installation in preparation for the Veterans’ Wall, which will be on display in Holly Springs Nov. 26 - Dec. 1. All of the flags were donated by the Collins Hurdle VFW, Post 5697 and Bill Janssen.
Early Monday morning, Sept. 15, the flags and poles were removed by Larry Mitchell and Clarence Allen and taken to Wayburn Callicutt’s farm shop. There, the old flags were removed, the poles straightened and painted, and the new flags attached. By the next morning, the entire square proudly flew the new flags.
“With the Veterans Wall scheduled to be here in just a few weeks and all the visitors that exhibit will draw to our town, we realized that the tattered and torn flags in front of every building on the square would really hurt our image,” explained Gwin. “Even more importantly, we wanted the new flags to demonstrate our gratitude to all veterans for their willingness to fight for our freedom, sometimes even at the cost of their lives.”
The ladies of Callicutt Realty feel the new flags are a real step forward in what is hoped to be a continuing effort to improve and enhance the Holly Springs courthouse square.
