West dominates in 1A-2A games
By BARRY BURLESON
The West teams put on a scoring clinic in 1A-2A all-star action Saturday at Booneville.
In the girls matchup, the West dominated the East 83-48, breaking a Northeast Mississippi Basketball Coaches Association All-Star Game record for points. The previous record was 66.
Behind The Scoreboard
NBA finals set
The Eastern Conference finals did not go as the Cleveland Cavaliers had planned. It did not go as the Denver Nuggets had planned in the Western Conference finals. It is certain both of these teams will critique and critique again, trying to precisely determine just what went wrong. Why couldn’t they force that seventh game?
Kelley going to Millikin
Parker Kelley of Byhalia has indicated he plans to attend Millikin University and play football for Big Blue head coach Doug Neibuhr.
Traci Rodgers, a 2009 graduate of Marshall Academy, was recently named to The Clarion-Ledger’s All-State Softball First Team. Rodgers, a center fielder, was a key ingredient in the Lady Patriots’ successful season, which included a second straight Class AA state championship and a first-ever Mississippi Private School Association overall crown. Rodgers was one of only two MPSA players selected to the 12-member first team. The others are from public schools. The Clarion-Ledger staff wrote – “Led the Lady Patriots to the academy overall championship with a .348 batting average, .534 on base percentage, 23 RBIs and errorless play in centerfield.” Susan Rodgers, softball coach at MA, said, “Nothing ever got past her in the outfield. If a ball is hit anywhere near her, it’s an out.”
