Mississippi State hopes to carry over last week's performance into this week and the rest of the season for that matter.
The Bulldogs went 2-2, but took their first Southeastern Conference series of the season by beating South Carolina two games to one. The other loss came to South Alabama in a road midweek contest.
It may have only been for about an hour, but the high school tennis teams from Starkville and Newton County got to experience the game on a college stage.
The Yellowjackets hosted the Cougars on Monday. The match didn't take place on the courts on the SHS campus. It happened at the Pitts Tennis Centre on the campus of Mississippi State University.
Eleven singer/songwriters competed Thursday night for the opportunity to take the stage performing their original music at the Cotton District Arts Festival on April 18.
April is an exciting time of the year in Starkville â€” the weather warms, summer is close and tailgating is in full-force in Left Field Lounge. However, for many people, Aprilâ€™s biggest event is the Cotton District Arts Festival.
Mrs. Louise Smith Robertson Ming, 89, of Starkville, MS, passed away at Windsor Place in Columbus on Sunday, April 5, 2015, which was a special day for a special lady.
Louise was a member of Fellowship Baptist Church, the Eastern StarÂ and was a retired cashier at Western Auto.
Mississippi State started three seniors on the defensive line a season ago.
Preston Smith, Kaleb Eulls and P.J. Jones were the nucleus of the Bulldog line during the 2014 season. Smith led the way at one of the defensive end positions with 48 total tackles. Eulls and Smith both played defensive tackle and had 34 and 31 total tackles respectively.
The Mississippi State men's golf team is less than two week away from competing at the Southeastern Conference Championships.
Coach Clay Homan is looking to instill some confidence in his Bulldogs and can't think of a better way to do it than play an event close to home.
The Old Waverly Golf Club in West Point provides that opportunity.
Back when collegiate All-American Tavaris Tate was wearing a Starkville High jersey, the Yellowjackets starting taking trips down to Mobile for the Challenge of Champions track meet.
They continued that tradition over the weekend.
Basketball is everything for Tyson Carter.
He grew up around the sport and from a young age, he has dedicated himself to being the best he could be.Â
Greg Carter is more than a coach.
To his players, the Starkville High Yellowjackets boys basketball coach is sometimes called a â€śfather figure,â€ť sometimes a motivator and sometimes just that â€ścalmâ€ť presence that holds everything together.
Taking all of those elements into consideration and it is no surprise the coach led his team to the Class 6A State championship.
