The patience of Mississippi State quarterback Tyler Russell has been rewarded.
After being heavily recruited out of Meridian High School, there was a tremendous amount of pressure on the Bulldog coaching staff and head coach Dan Mullen to play Russell early.
It was back at the Beehive for the Starkville High School volleyball team.
After a year away from their on-campus home due to renovations, the Lady Yellowjackets made a successful return by beating Heritage Academy 3-0 Tuesday night.
The Lady Jackets (2-3) played at the Starkville Sportsplex, while improvements were being made to the Beehive.
The margin of the loss didn't matter as much to the Starkville Academy Lady Volunteers Tuesday afternoon as the loss itself.
Even as the score grew in Copiah Academy's favor at the Lady Volunteer softball field, the fact that it was a conference game made it hurt a little more for Starkville Academy.
