The scene in the Big House in Jackson Saturday afternoon included a crowd estimated at 2,800 to see two former champions in Class 3A clash for another chance to vie for a state title.
• Byers girls lose to Lady Bulldogs
By CLAUDE VINSON
Unlike their previous two trips to the Big House in Jackson for the State Basketball Tournament, the Lady Lions faltered in their contest with the Lady Bulldogs of McAdams High School out of Attala County.
The H.W. Byers girls, two-time defending 2A champs, were not showing a lot of flash in the opening quarter of this Class 1A state semi-final contest. There didn’t seem to be the zest with which they are known to attack the basket and mount a smothering defense. McAdams, the defending 1A champ, was grabbing most of the rebounds and running the floor with ease. The Lady Bulldogs led after one quarter by four points at 12-8.
Behind The Scoreboard
Over the years all of us have probably heard the expression, “That was the week that was.”
The events leading to the statements could be prompted by any manner of circumstances. If one is to apply the adage to the NCAA basketball season it should be amended to read, “That was the weekend that was.”
MA off to 2-2 start
The Marshall Academy baseball season got underway Monday, Feb. 22, as the Patriots split a doubleheader with the Memphis Home School.
