How much potential does the Starkville Academy boys soccer team have?
As far as SA coach Robert Gardner is concerned, all someone has to do is look at Tuesday night's second half against East Rankin Academy.
The Volunteers were locked in a 1-1 battle at halftime, but scored three goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half and went on to a 5-1 victory at the Starkville Sportsplex.
On Tuesday night, The Starkville High Yellowjackets were defeated by Columbus Falcons in overtime 70-62.
With the Jackets leading heading into the final moments, Jalen Stewart hit a last second shot to tie the game at 58 as time expired. Columbus would then take control of the extra period to come away with the win.
Caleb Wilson lead Starkville in scoring with 15 points.
The East Rankin Lady Patriots came to Starkville Academy on Tuesday, hoping to escape with an upset over one of the best teams in the state.
However, for coach Glenn Schmidt and the Lady Volunteers, it was business as usual and they defeated East Rankin 68-34 to remain unbeaten.
Starkville Christian School boys basketball coach Alex Thompson does not take the play of senior Caleb Jordan for granted.
Even when he's not scoring, Jordan finds other ways to help the Cougars.
Jordan scored his only two points of the game with 7 minutes remaining in Tuesday's game against the Meridian Flyers, but he continued to hustle and encourage his SCS teammates down the stretch.
