I have on my desk a perfectly preserved game program from the Mississippi State-

Ole Miss football game played Nov. 24, 1945. On page 1, it tells us about school

colors: “For Ole Miss, Red and Blue; for Mississippi State, Maroon and White.”
  • Germantown equestrian chosen for national event
    Blue Ribbon Riding Academy located in Madison County is recently announced that their student, Haley Curry, has been selected as a team member for the upcoming Adequan/FEI North American Junior & Young Rider Championships (NAJYRC) competition is held annually in the summer. This event is commonly referred to as the “Junior Olympics” and is the pinnacle of a young rider's achievement. Teams from all areas of the U.S. as well as from Canada, Mexico, Bermuda, the Bahamas and the Caribbean are invited to compete in this international championship event.
  • What I remember most about Darryl Strawberry's one summer in Jackson was the explosive sound of his bat launching the baseball. It was shocking, really, no matter how many times you heard it. And we heard it often in 1982.

  • For one day — and one day only — I am the Commissioner of Sports. All sports. Things are going to change around here.

    First off, we're going to quit discriminating against college baseball players.
  • They will play the United States Open Golf Championship for the 116th time later this week at storied Oakmont Country Club in Oakmont, Pa..

    No native Mississippian has ever won the event, and that will remain the case this week. No Mississippian made the field.

    Mississippi Sports Hall of Famer Johnny Pott, who grew up and learned to play golf on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, probably finished highest of all Mississippians by tying for ninth at Congressional in 1964.

  • The Rooks family at St. Joseph
    The baseball team’s website at St. Joe says, “Family.”  Twenty guys and their families who are at the ballpark together for four months, day-in and day-out, weekends included. Parents run the concession stands, plan team snacks; the boys practice, play, practice, then play again. Everyone cheers.
  • This is written on Memorial Day morning, the morning after it was announced that both Ole Miss and Mississippi State baseball teams will host NCAA Regionals at once for the first time ever.

    It is written on the day after Southern Miss's stirring 3-2 victory over tradition power Rice for the Conference USA Baseball Championship. Has a relay play from the outfield ever been executed more perfectly? I think not.

  • This college baseball season in Mississippi has given us so much to cheer: conference championships, nationally ranked teams, splendid players and so much more.

    But did you ever think you would see what we saw Saturday? Mississippi State fans openly cheered an Ole Miss victory.
  • Saint Joseph Catholic School names Tyler O’Hara head basketball coach for Bruins
    Tyler O’Hara, who has coached the Saint Joseph Catholic School middle school basketball team for eight years, has been named head varsity basketball coach effective immediately.

    O’Hara, 31, who currently teaches 12th grade English and handles discipline at the school, will take over a team that went 24-4 this year – winning the district tournament and making it all the way to the third round of the state playoffs.
  • St. Andrew’s falls to Kossuth in 3A championship
    St. Andrew’s (27-11) overcame a South State run only to lose two games to the Kossuth Aggies (31-8) in the title game.

    Head coach Mark Fanning’s Saints lost a 7-1 heartbreaker to the Aggies Friday afternoon. Senior Stephen Atkins scored the only run of the day. The day before they lost a close game 2-3.
  • Jags capture 6A baseball crown
    First-year Madison Central baseball coach Patrick Robey defied expectations by taking a dedicated group of young men through to win the MHSAA 6A title in baseball last week.
