The Mississippi State Bulldogs knew that with the start of Southeastern Conference play, they would see a combination of good hitting and excellent pitching.
Both areas were on display on Friday night by the Kentucky Wildcats.
Kentucky pitcher Kelsey Nunley hurled a no-hitter, while Ansley Smith and Ginny Carroll hit the softball out of the park in a 4-0 victory over MSU.
East Mississippi Community College and Mississippi State were both glad that Colin Borchert chose not to stay in the restaurant business.
While attending Yavapai Junior College in Prescott, Ariz., Borchert spent time working at a restaurant. It didn't take long for him to learn that serving food and wearing a tie was no life for him.
If you ask coach John Cohen, he will tell you that his Mississippi State squad has already been tested this season.
The Bulldogs (11-4) have already played some tough teams in Western Carolina, Memphis, Holy Cross, Eastern Illinois and Michigan State.
All those games took place for MSU at the friendly confines of Dudy Noble Field.
Since he was a little boy, former Starkville Academy player Hunter Bolin has dreamed of playing on a bigger stage.
Recently, Bolin made that dream a reality when he joined on to play for the Mississippi College Choctaws.
Mississippi State senior pitcher Alison Owen has seen just about everything that Southeastern Conference softball has to offer.
During her career with Georgia and MSU, Owen has learned a great deal about the conference.
Owen will start going through the league one more time this weekend when State hosts the Kentucky Wildcats. Today's first pitch is scheduled for 6 p.m.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs struck early Wednesday night.
The No. 14 Bulldogs collected five hits and three runs, all in the first three innings, in a 3-0 victory over South Alabama at Dudy Noble Field.
MSU only had three base runners the rest of the game.
All of the elements are present for Starkville Academy to be successful.
The only thing is the Volunteers can't seem to get everything going at one time.Â
Wednesday was no exception.
While coach Jody Britt's squad was in the game the whole time, a few plays here and there left the Vols on the losing side of a 8-5 contest.
SCOOBA â€“ Jacolby Mobley is playing some of his best basketball at the right time of the year.
East Mississippi Community College men's coach Mark White couldn't be happier and prouder of the former Starkville Yellowjacket.
It's not only Mobley's game that White notices, but it's how he handles his business off the court as well.
FULTON â€“ Former Starkville High School player Tory Rice and former West Oktibbeha player Dontavious "Tay" Crawford have made their mark at the next level.
The Mississippi State women's basketball team hopes the next game in the state of Georgia is much better than the last one.
After losing a 77-48 decision to the Georgia Bulldogs last Sunday, MSU opens the Southeastern Conference Tournament in Duluth, Ga., today against Missouri. The tip is set for 5 p.m. at The Arena at the Gwinnett Center.
