Going into the 2013-2014 baseball season, many were saying the Starkville Academy Volunteers were young so they would not win much.

They took it as there was no reason for them to lose and didnâ€™t let early season bumps and bruises dampen their enthusiasm and actually became a really good team by the end of the year.â€ť
