Hawks district champions again
The Holly Springs High School boys continued their dominance in district track last week.
The Hawks, coached by Donald Deans, are district champions for the third straight year.
The Holly High girls, coached by Maxine Tucker, finished third.
Results from the District 2-3A meet follow. It was held at Charleston.
The first two hitters in Marshall Academy’s lineup combined for six RBIs Friday as the Patriots advanced to the second round of the Class A state playoffs.
“We got Dakota (Dailey) and B.W. (Langston) in the batter’s box at the right time,” coach Bart Jenkins said. “Both are hitting over .400.”
Sparked by three RBIs each from those two and a strong seven-inning mound performance by Matt Miller, MA blanked Greenville Christian 8-0 to sweep the best-of-three series.
Byhalia selects coach
Kendrick Smith said he’s found the place he wants to be.
He’s moving from the Delta to Marshall County to take over leadership of the Byhalia High School football program.
Byers Lady Lions win first in division
The H.W. Byers girls claimed the top prize in the Division 2-2A track meet last week held at Potts Camp High School.
The Lady Lions won the championship 114 points. Second and third were West Tallahatchie with 92 and Potts Camp with 55.
Playoffs heating up
It was the “almost was” that almost was and then wasn’t.
There were four NBA playoff games to open the first weekend and there were three winners by the “road teams.” To this date there has never been a four-game sweep by road teams. After the first three went victorious, the Memphis Grizzlies had the fourth game on Saturday evening against the Oklahoma Thunder. Since the teams had split the two previous playoff outings (Thunder in 2012 and Memphis in 2013) and the Thunder had defeated the Grizz three of four times this season, it was almost logical to assume that the game would go Memphis’ way even on the road. Almost logical, but not practical nor probable.
Car wash set for May 3
The Holly Springs High School Hawks and Lady Hawks will have a car wash on Saturday, May 3, from 7 a.m. until noon at the Serenity parking lot.
It was originally scheduled for last Saturday, April 19, but changed.
People are encouraged to support the athletic teams and get their automobiles cleaned up for May.
The cost is $7.
MA junior high boys take district title
Marshall Academy recently won its third District 1-A championship this school year in the junior high boys sports program.
The junior high Patriots captured the track crown in the district meet held at Lee Academy in Clarksdale.
Ashland Blue Devils claim division crown
The Ashland boys finished first and the girls third in the Division 2-1A track meet last week at Potts Camp High School.
The Blue Devils scorched the competition, finishing with 80 points, which was far ahead of Ingomar’s 52 and Myrtle’s 27.
MA boys second in district
The Marshall Academy varsity boys placed second in the recent District 1-A meet held at Lee Academy in Clarksdale.
The top finishers for the Patriots and Lady Patriots follow.
