It appeared early in Sunday's volleyball match against the Arkansas Razorbacks that the Mississippi State Bulldogs were establishing the kind of momentum they were looking for to have success in the Southeastern Conference.
More than a year ago, the Mississippi State women's golf team found itself in new territory.
Coach Ginger Brown-Lemm and her squad hosted the first ever Old Waverly Bulldog Invitational at Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point.
They see the start of the second annual event today.
The last two games have shown how good Starkville can be on offense.Â
The Yellowjackets have scored a combined 69 points in their last two games, and quarterback Princeton Jones has been a big part.
The long-time wide receiver had to move under center this fall after the graduation of Gabe Myles and the departure of Caleb Wilson.
Only one word can describe the beginning of French Camp Academyâ€™s season. That word is gauntlet.
Not many people would schedule Class 3A Choctaw County, Class 2A Eupora, Class 3A Kemper County and strong Class A opponent Noxapater back-to-back-to-back-to-back to start a campaign. The Panthers did just that and ultimately they suffered from the choice.
SCOOBA â€“ The East Mississippi Community College offense has been very good all season long.
They went to another level on Saturday.Â
The No. 3 Lions scored on their first nine offensive possessions and they rolled to a 90-7 victory over Coahoma Community College on homecoming afternoon at Sullivan-
It's a good idea to take a calculator when going to watch an East Mississippi Community College football game.
Sometimes that's the only way to keep track of all the scoring.
The things that the Lions are doing on the football field, both offensively and defensively, this season are nothing short of incredible.
Points are coming for EMCC and are coming in large numbers.
Coach Rick Ray's second season at Mississippi State will be very different than his first.
The Bulldogs suffered several injuries and saw an average of seven players available for most games.
Many of those players were young and inexperienced, but this season those guys have a year of play under their belt.
MSU starts practice Monday and Ray is anxious to see how his guys will play.
Most people travel to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for sun, seafood and relaxation.
For Starkville resident Marie Callahan, the trip to Biloxi on Sept. 13-15, was for a much different reason.
Callahan, along with over 30 other competitors, convened on the coastal city to take part in the 2013 Mississippi Skeet Championships, which were held at the Gulf Coast Rifle and Pistol Club.
COLUMBUS â€“ The Starkville Yellowjackets gained all the momentum at the end of first half.
The Yellowjackets rode that momentum as they outscored Class 6A, Region 2 Columbus 28-6 in the second half on the way to a 35-13 victory Friday night at Falcon Field.
It has often been said that defense wins games.
That was certainly the case for Starkville Academy on Friday night, as the Volunteers held off the visiting Winston Academy Patriots 14-0.
Penalties proved to be a big factor early for SA, as a total of five offensive penalties in the first quarter resulted in two scoreless possessions.
