SOUTHAVEN â€“ After a strong Saturday start at the Dizzy Dean World Series, Starkvilleâ€™s 8-year-old All-Stars ran into trouble Sunday.
Playing two games in Southaven, Starkville fell to East Cherokee, Ga., 8-1, then lost to in-state foe Saltillo 16-6.
â€śWe played pretty early in the morning so I think everyone was tired and worn out,â€ť said Starkville head coach Shane Grantham. â€śOverall, we just had a bad day.â€ť
Starkvilleâ€™s struggles came just one day after a dominating 18-4 win over Oregon Park, Ga., in their DDWS opener.
Euporaâ€™s Trae Embry was the Starkville Daily News Area Softball Coach of the Year. The Eaglesâ€™ Lee Berryhill took home SDNâ€™s Area Baseball Coach of the Year honors.
So will head football coach Junior Graham begin staking his claim on the SDNâ€™s postseason football award beginning with todayâ€™s first practice?
â€śWell, both (Embry and Berryhill) deserved the award, no doubt about it,â€ť said Graham. â€śIf you want to start comparing sports here at Eupora, weâ€™re all very fortunate. Weâ€™re all very competitive in everything.â€ť
Itâ€™s back to school time in Oktibbeha County, and for the Junior Auxiliary, that means itâ€™s time for the annual Stuff the Bus event.
â€śThe purpose of this event is to serve as many children as possible with the funds available,â€ť said Robin Parker, Child Assistance Committee Chair. â€śHistorically this has involved making essential school supplies available to children at the beginning of the school year when those children have been referred by school counselors... It is one of our most important projects because we are able to fill an immediate need of children in our schools.â€ť
