Locals travel to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras

Maia Miller, Robin Seale, Hamilton Moriarty, Kay Wheeler, Patti and Fred Carlisle, Michele and John Stuber, Susan and Reggie Holley and Jane and Charlie Farris traveled to New Orleans last week. Some of the group rode the train from Marks in a private car. They were going to celebrate Charlie Farris.

The Prophets of Persia Mardi Gras Krewe held their 93rd anniversary ball Saturday night at the Orpheum Theater in New Orleans, La. Charlie Farris was crowned King of this Krewe at the ball.

Basketball season for the Marshall Academy Patriots has come to a close. The team traveled to Benton (near Yazoo City) over the weekend to battle for the Class AA state title. Friday night, they beat St. Joseph from Greenville to advance to the championship round Saturday night. The Patriots faced off with Brookhaven, the same final two from the championship game last year. The gym was packed with fans from both sides.

The game was tit for tat for a bit. The speed of some of the Patriots threw Brookhaven off for a moment. It was not long before Brookhaven pulled away, winning the blue trophy.

Congratulations to the senior players - Everette Jones, Drayton Potts, Zach Sorrell and Thomas Stewart. It has been so much fun watching y’all play together all these years. Each one of y’all brought a different element to the game and certainly to the fans. The next chapter will be incredible for all of these young men!
