Mississippi State softball coach Vann Stuedeman made it four-for-four on Sunday night.
During the NCAA Softball Selection Show on ESPNU, the Bulldogs learned that they were going to be playing in the NCAA Tournament for the fourth-consecutive season under Stuedeman's leadership.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs broke the school home run record this season.
With 52 home runs as a team, MSU has produced the power numbers.
One person that has been a big part of the Bulldogs' improvement on offense this season has been hitting coach Samantha Ricketts.
Mississippi State's inability to close out a game nearly cost it a win on May 2.
It did on Saturday in Oxford though.
The Bulldogs were able to overcome a ninth inning rally by LSU two Saturdays ago and win in the 12th inning. MSU wasn't able to overcome a five-run ninth inning rally by Ole Miss this past Saturday.
MABEN â€“ Bailie Springfield didn't like the fact that she gave up a home run to the Eupora Lady Eagles in the first inning on Saturday.
The East Webster offense showed that it was more than able to make up for that and had its pitcher's back.
The road to Ridgeland is one well-traveled for the East Webster softball team.
In slow pitch and fast pitch combined, the Lady Wolverines have been to the Jackson-area location to compete for state championships five-straight times. No that's not a misprint. They have make the trip to Ridgeland for five-straight seasons.
PEARL â€“ The Starkville Lady Yellowjackets finished second at the Class 6A team championship, while Kate Mattox brought home two more state championships and Patton Little captured a title for the boys team.
With her wins in the 3200 and 1600 meter runs, Kate Mattox earned her fourth championship in each race. Kate's sister Walker was third in both events.
OXFORD â€“ Painful.
That's the first word that came to mind for Mississippi State's John Holland Saturday afternoon.
The Bulldogs blew a five-run ninth inning lead and ended up losing to in-state rival Ole Miss 8-7 in 10 innings as the Rebels swept the series at Swayze Field.
The Starkville High School girls track team looks to make a big impression when it participates in the Class 6A State track meet today in Pearl.
There are eight Lady Yellowjackets qualified in 12 events for the state meet and that will give them plenty of opportunities for points.
SHS track coach Caroline Woomer is excited to have so many girls participating at state.
EUPORA â€“ A season of dominance continued for the East Webster Lady Wolverines on Friday evening as they showed no signs of letting up with the Class 2A North State softball series beginning against Eupora.
East Webster pounded out 15 runs on 12 hits to slay the home-standing Eupora Eagles 15-3 in game one of the series.
MABEN â€“ It's not accident that Koby Crowley spells his first name with a K.
As a pitcher for the East Webster Wolverines on Friday night, that's exactly what he was getting.
Crowley had seven strikeouts, including three in the last two innings when East Union had runners on base and the Wolverines defeated the Urchins 5-3 to clinch the Class 2A series in Cumberland.
