Starkville Academy soccer

It was just the kind of test that head coach John Morgan wanted for his Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers on the soccer pitch Tuesday.

Morgan knew that Jackson Academy was going to come in and give a very strong effort against Starkville Academy. He wanted to see how his Lady Vols would respond.

Even though Starkville Academy lost a 4-0 decision in its season-opener at the Starkville Sportsplex, Morgan saw some good to go along with the bad.
