MA finishes second in state
Coach Bart Jenkins, with a second-place trophy sitting nearby on the grass, told his Patriots to focus on one thing and one thing only.
“You are a champion,” he said. “Live the rest of your life knowing you played your hardest.”
Marshall Academy’s bid for the school’s first state championship ever in baseball came up short. The Pats dropped two games last week to Centreville Academy in the title series and ended their season at 19-17, the bulk of those losses coming against large public schools.
Teams tune up at Byhalia jamboree
By CLAUDE VINSON
A periodic drizzle couldn’t dampen the spirit and enthusiasm displayed by the six teams taking part in Byhalia’s first spring football jamboree Saturday.
The two-quarter games began with a duel between the Benton County Buccaneers and the Cougars of Coldwater. The Cougars shut the Bucs out to a tune of 32-0.
Pritchett takes third in state
Marshall Academy’s Zack Pritchett, going into the North State Golf Tournament trying to make it three titles in a row, came up one stroke shy.
Pritchett’s 13 pars, four birdies and one bogey were not enough to regain his North crown for a third straight time.
Behind The Scoreboard
There was a TV commercial making the rounds sometime ago, showing a ventriloquist and his lap mate in an exchange that usually ended in a veiled disagreement. At the end of one such conversation, an on-scene straight man (announcer) remarks to the ventriloquist, “It must be hard working with a dummy.” To which the wooden component immediately replied, “Oh, he’s alright.”
Potts Camp and Holly Springs will play in spring jamborees Thursday night at different locations.
The Cardinals will go to Falkner, where they will play Biggersville at 6:50 and then Falkner. Each contest will be two quarters.
The Potts Camp junior varsity team will then play Falkner for one quarter.
The Hawks will travel to North Panola for a spring jamboree that kicks off at 5 p.m.
Holly Springs junior varsity and varsity teams will face both Madison-Ridgeland Academy and the host school during the jamboree, which continues until 9 p.m.
