As Bowen comes down the stretch of his senior year with the Eupora Eagles, he is doing the things it takes to help lead his team in the postseason.

The rain held off long enough at Starkville Academy Tuesday night for the Volunteers to honor the seniors who have meant so much to the success of the program.

Head coach Wes Johnson is a testament to that.
Weather reared its nasty head again on Tuesday, postponing East Webster and Baldwyn's Class 2A playoff game until later in the week.

East Webster baseball coach Wes Johnson is going to make sure he has enough pitching to get him through a playoff series.

Former Mississippi State Bulldog Martha Alwal may not have heard her name called during the Womenâ€™s National Basketball Association Draft, but that doesnâ€™t mean her dream for a professional basketball career is dashed.
It was announced Monday that Alwal signed a training camp contract with the Atlanta Dream.
EUPORA â€“ It was a fantastic four in the mind of the Eupora Eagles on Monday night.
When the Eagles scored four runs in the first inning, it was something great to see for pitcher Trey Pittman.
Pittman benefitted from the early run support as Eupora went on to take an 11-4 victory over Mantachie in the first game of the second round Class 2A playoff series.
