The Philadelphia Lady Tornadoes saw their 2016 slow-pitch season come to an end Saturday as they were swept by Perry Central in the second round of the playoffs.

Philadelphia started the season as the two-time defending Class 3A state slow-pitch champions. They finished the season with a 22-10 record.
  • Lady Rockets advance past first two rounds
    The Neshoba Central Lady Rockets were going for their fifth straight North State 5A-6A slow-pitch championship Tuesday when they played host to New Hope.
        The winner advances to the State championship series on Saturday against the South State winner which was to be decided between Northwest Rankin and George County. The Lady Rockets started the week with a 24-7 record.
  • The Choctaw Central Lady Warriors were to travel to Perry Central Tuesday evening to play for the South State Class 3A slow-pitch softball championship.

    Choctaw Central has made it to the South State championship for the three years in a row and won the Class 3A slow-pitch state championship in 2013. The winner between Choctaw Central and Perry Central will advance to the state finals Saturday at Freedom Ridge in Ridgeland to play against the North State winner which will be decided between Nettleton and Mooreville.
  •  The Union Lady Yellowjackets were to play in the South State Class 2A slow-pitch softball championship series Tuesday.

    The Lady Yellowjackets were to travel to Bay Springs to take on the Lady Bulldogs in the best 2-out-3 game series. The winner advances to the Class 2A state championship which will be held Saturday at Freedom Ridge Park in Ridgeland.
  • Union tunes up for Newton game
    The Union Yellowjackets turned in a solid performance as they picked up a 34-6 Region 5-2A victory over Clarkdale in prep football action.

    Union improved to 8-1 overall and 2-1 in the region. They play an improved Newton Tigers team this week that is coming off 26-6 loss to Bay Springs.

    “We really played well,” Coach Brad Breland said. “The defense had a solid performance and the offense played well. Clarkdale has some injuries but we took care of business.”
  •  Turnovers proved to be Choctaw Central’s downfall as they dropped a 56-14 decision to Forest in prep football action Friday night.

    The Warriors gave up six interceptions as they fell behind 28-0 by the end of the first quarter.
  • The Neshoba Central Rockets will be trying to get back on track Friday night when they play host to Ridgeland High School in prep football action.

    The Rockets come in at 3-6 overall and 1-3 in the Region 2-5A standings. Ridgeland stands 1-3 in the region and 1-8 overall.
  • The Leake Academy Rebels took a dominating win Friday night as they pounded Oak Hill 55-3 in prep football action.

    The Rebels accumulated 443 total yards while limiting Oak Hill to 92 total yards and 21 rushing yards.
  • ECCC remains on top of division with win over Hinds
    The East Central Community College football team took advantage of six Hinds Community College turnovers to win a big MACJC South Division matchup 45-14 on homecoming in Bailey Stadium in Decatur Saturday.

    The victory over the Eagles improved the Warriors to 4-3 on the season and 4-1 in the South Division to remain at the top spot of the South.
  • Noxapater football coach Casey Orr was worried about how “scrappy” French Camp had played against Starkville Academy a week ago.

    The Panthers were indeed scrappy against the Tigers Friday night,  but not as good as Orr's defense.
  • After scoring 30 runs in an opening-round sweep of French Camp, the Lady Tigers struggled at the plate against Sebastopol.

    After beating Sebastopol 3-2 in Game 1, the Lady Tigers lost the next two contests 18-8 and 11-1 to finish the season.
