That's what Mississippi State softball player Alexis Silkwood did on Sunday.

Eupora sports veteran baseball squad

March 15, 2015

EUPORA – It's a veteran ball club.

EDWARDS ON PREPS: Belief of the players key in Starkville's playoff run

March 15, 2015

Back in November most would have not faulted Starkville for not making any postseason runs.
This was after all a team that had lost nine players, seven of which were the majority of its impact players and was left with a roster full of inexperience.
Even coach Greg Carter, who knew there was talent on the roster, was still somewhat unsure of this team's potential.
