Wolverines start strong
The East Webster Wolverines took a loss to Starkville in 12 innings the Friday before Spring break, but turned their game around over the holiday week.
The Wolverines host their annual Friday – Monday tournament during Spring break that kept them pretty busy racking up wins.
“We are playing very well, won five straight,” said coach Wes Johnson.
The Wolverines took wins over Noxapater, Choctaw County and West Lowndes, then hosted Tishomingo County March 14 and snagged an 8-5 victory to close out the week.
The Wolverines started the week at 7-3 overall and were scheduled to begin play in West POint Tuesday before hosting Leflore County Friday.
Lady Wildcats working to elimante errors
A run to North Half basketball playoffs, combined with wet weather, has limited the Houlka Lady Wildcats practice and playing time, but coach Vicki Homan said they have hit the field learning as they go.
“We are holding in there,” Homan said. “We just need to cut out the errors. Hopefully we will work them out of our system with more time on the field.”
The Houlka girls took a 6-4 loss to Biggersville March 7 and fell to North Pontotoc, 8-2, March 14, but Homan said the girls didn’t back down.
“We battled them to the end,” Homan said.”I am proud of how they played.”
The Lady Cats got a win Saturday as they ran over Falkner, 14-3, and took a close, 1-3, loss to East Union.
They will make their next outing on the road to Potts Camp Thursday and will host North Pontotoc Friday.
