Six straight for Patriots
By BARRY BURLESON
The Marshall Academy baseball team, bogged down at times in the midst of a rugged schedule, came alive in district play last week.
The Patriots won four district games – three over Kirk Academy and another over Indianola Academy– to claim the school’s sixth straight District 1-AA title.

By BARRY BURLESON
A pair of former track stars in the Southeastern Conference raced to top finishes in the Killer Kudzu Saturday.
Barnabas Kirui, a three-time SEC cross country champion at Ole Miss, was the overall winner in the 5K with a time of 15.16.
Meggan Franks, who excelled at Mississippi State, set a female course record with a time of 18.01.
Behind The Scoreboard
Playoffs taking shape

Lady Cards down Lady Hawks, fall to Strayhorn, Bruce
The Potts Camp Lady Cardinals opened their week on the softball diamond with a win over rival Myrtle.

Cardinals lose three
Potts Camp battled back in a Region 2-2A challenge at Calhoun City Thursday night but the rally fell short.
The Cardinals dropped a 7-4 decision.

The H.W. Byers Lions took the bus last week and made a turn around the district encountering a trio of foes.
They stopped first at West Union and dropped a close one in seven innings. Chance Lykens went the distance for the Lions and took the loss on the hill. The winning pitcher for the Urchins was Drew Garrett.
