Happiest of birthday wishes to Amy Potts! She celebrated flipping a number by attending the Marshall Academy homecoming game Friday night.
Congratulations to the Marshall Academy Patriots football team for a shutout win against the Rossville Wolves Friday night. The stands were packed early on the Marshall side in anticipation of the crowning of the homecoming queen at halftime. Senior Faith Shankle was crowned by last year’s queen, Erin Lomenick. The queen is voted on by the junior high and high school students. Faith is from Senatobia and has been a Patriot for two years. She is active on campus and is a valuable teammate of the girls softball team.
Prior to kickoff Friday night, four outstanding students were named Junior High Mr. and Miss Marshall Academy and Mr. and Miss Marshall Academy. This honor is voted on by the grades respectively. Freshmen Ava Rodgers and Walker Sanders were voted by their peers in junior high and seniors Erin Burleson and Grady Brooks, Mr. and Miss MA for varsity. Coincidentally, Erin and Grady were also voted Mr. and Miss MA when they were freshmen. They are also the only two seniors who have been Patriots since they were 3 years old.
The Lady Patriots softball team of Marshall Academy carried on the shut-out situation Saturday and Monday. The ladies beat Winona, Carroll and Lee Academy handily, allowing no runs in any of the four games played. They clinched the North 3A title Monday afternoon and advance to the 3A state tournament in Magee, which begins Saturday. Good luck to them, as well as their head coach, Carlton Gibson.
