The key to having success in any sport is understanding that hard work and determination will lead to positive results.
The Mississippi State Rugby Football Club, also known as MADDAWGS Rugby, has put that theory to the test over the past year and has benefitted from it.
The Hatley Lady Tigers showed Autumn Frost of East Webster the ultimate sign of respect during a Class 2A playoff fast pitch softball game earlier this month.
With runners on base for the Lady Wolverines, Hatley realized how dangerous the situation was with Frost at the plate.
Frost was East Webster's best hitter so the Lady Tigers took the necessary approach to keep Frost from hurting them.
With three-straight trophies in the case in Cumberland, East Webster softball coach Lee Berryhill knows a thing or two about winning games.
The third-year Lady Wolverine coach took over at the school and immediately brought home the hardware. A 20-2 season this year made him a shoe-in for the Starkville Daily News High School Fast Pitch Coach of the Year.
A well-oiled machine has several vital parts.
Each piece has a responsibility of getting a particular job done so that the entire package is functioning properly.
This is true for just about anything in life, but when considering the progress of an athletic team, the idea is especially fitting.
Many Mississippi State softball fans are excited for the 2016 season for a variety of reasons.
Vann Stuedeman will be here for her fifth season as the head coach of the Bulldogs and the team brings back a solid nucleus of players that made up the 2015 Lafayette (La.) Regional â€“ the fourth-straight NCAA Tournament appearance. It will be one of the more exciting seasons in MSU softball history.
Much has been made in the last week about the hiring of football coach Ricky Woods at Starkville High School and whatâ€™s in store for the Yellowjackets in 2015.
One thing is for certain, Woods might be walking into the best situation heâ€™s ever had.
A move up from Class 2A to 3A was quite the transition for Choctaw County High School two years ago.
The Chargers and head coach Adam Dillinger are used to transition, though. Formerly Ackerman High, theyâ€™ve been through the changes over the past few years, following the consolidation with Weir High, and this year will be no different.
Vann Stuedeman continues to guide Mississippi State in the right direction.
She just finished her fourth season as the head coach of the Bulldogs, and even though it was supposed to be a "rebuilding year," she led her team to a fourth-straight NCAA Tournament appearance.
The Starkville Park and Recreation Department has a fun and safe way to cool off as the temperatures continue to rise this summer.
The swimming pool at Moncrief Park opens on Monday and SPRD director Herman Peters encourages the public to take advantage of the opportunity.
Even though there is a slight price increase to participate, Peters said the pool should be as popular as ever.
The atmosphere surrounding Starkville High School athletics is changing.
It's not just in personnel with the transition among athletic directors and football coaches, but facilities are improving for the Yellowjackets.
