Caroline Grace Douglas, daughter of Stefanie and Charlie Douglas and granddaughter of Leigh and Dick Douglas, has been accepted into the NW Rankin High School Health Sciences Curriculum. Sixty eighth graders are chosen from hundreds of applicants each year. The program, which begins in the ninth grade and goes through 12th grade, prepares students who plan to study health sciences/medicine in college.
Chandler Douglas, Caroline Grace’s brother, was awarded Outstanding Contribution and Dedication from NW Rankin Jazz Band for his performance on the baritone saxophone. Congratulations to both of these stellar young people!
Congratulations to the Marshall Academy golf team. They competed Monday at Kirkwood in the state round. As a team, they came in second behind Claiborne Academy. There is a bright future for the young team!
Cinching a state title seemed just out of reach for the Marshall Academy Patriots baseball team. Friday, they hosted Benton Academy from Yazoo City. After coming off of a win there Wednesday, they just had to win the first game to advance to the state championship round the next week. It did not look too good for the Patriots going into the seventh inning and, as luck would have it, they lost the first game. Being a best two out of three, they had one more shot at Benton to move forward and keep their season going. Overcoming much adversity and a large run deficit, the Patriots came back within one run. A state run just was not in the cards for the Patriots this year.
Thank you to some fine seniors who played their hearts out this season, as well as seasons in the past. It has been fun watching them transform from gawky little baseball players in junior high to athletic and strong varsity players. Veteran players leaving are Josh Mask, B.W. Langston, Caleb Jobe, Matt Miller and Chance Lykens. Senior transfer player is Andrew Herrington.
