Communication way a key during the season for Starkville Academy's mixed doubles team of Grace Delp and Harrison Holliday.
It helped the pair to the AAA State championship last Wednesday.
Holliday recalled the first match the two played and Delp didn't say the first word to him. He said they talk all of the time now.
Mixed doubles was one of two state championships for the Volunteers as Lily Holliday defended her title in No. 1 girls singles.
