Starkville High School head softball coach Ronald Campbell had expressed to his team how dangerous the Philadelphia Lady Tornadoes were all week long and it was going to be a tough way to open the season.

The Lady Tornadoes, the defending Class 2A State champions in fast pitch, hit a pair of three-run home runs and defeated the Lady Jackets 16-6 to start the slow pitch season.
