The Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers provided a day at the plate that coach Kayla Mosley has wanted to see this season.

Mosley was happy to see the hitting up and down the lineup.
MABEN â€“ Playoffs are right around the corner for the East Webster softball team so the Lady Wolverines are set on making every game count.
Football season is an incredibly important time of year for many college towns around America, and Starkville â€” which markets itself as â€śMississippiâ€™s College Townâ€ť â€” is no exception.
Margo Swain has made an impact on the city of Starkville. Whether it be through her work as a volunteer or her time as a social worker, her efforts have not gone unnoticed.
She has always had a concern for families and children and spent many years working with the Department of Public Welfare, which is now the Department of Human Services, throughout the state of Mississippi.
There is a good bit of uncertainty surrounding the quarterbacks at Mississippi State moving forward.
Senior starter Tyler Russell suffered a concussion in week one against Oklahoma State. He sat out the home opener at Alcorn State. He didn't even dress out.Â
Backup Dak Prescott got his first career start against the Braves.
The heat and humidity of a Mississippi summer can be difficult on someone from Amsterdam.
For Mississippi State soccer freshman Annebel ten Broeke, the adjustment is working out just fine.
The Bulldogs defeated Jackson State 4-2 Sunday in the final match of the Bulldog Classic and ten Broeke had a goal and three assists.
With a young team, it is always important to get off to a good start.
Starkville Academy did just that as the Volunteers went the length of the field on the very first drive during Friday's 49-8 victory over Hillcrest Christian School.
Starkville High School football coach Jamie Mitchell said in the preseason that junior running back Jacquez Horsley might be asked to run the football 20-25 times for his offense.
It took more than that on Friday night for the Yellowjackets.
Horsley had 37 carries for Starkville in a 34-14 victory over the Southaven Chargers at home.
AUBURN, Ala. â€“ It seemed that Mississippi State was on its way to a victory.Â

AUBURN, Ala. â€“ Senior quarterback Tyler Russell traveled with Mississippi State and dressed out.
He just didn't play.

MSU head coach Dan Mullen said Russell was not physically cleared to play.Â
For the second week in a row, sophomore Dak Prescott got the start under center.Â
