Volunteer Starkville celebrated National Volunteer Week by holding two â€śWrite a Letterâ€ť campaigns to collect hand-written letters to be included in care packages sent to soldiers deployed overseas.
Volunteer Starkville hosted the events from 10 a.m. - noon at the drill field on the MSU campus and from 2-6 p.m. at the 929 Coffee Bar on Wednesday.
Brett Pirtle and the Mississippi State Bulldogs struggled early in the season when it came to fielding the baseball.
MSU committed 10 errors in the first 10 games, but in the last 24 games, the Bulldogs have only had 11 errors.
Pirtle, the senior second baseman who has committed two errors this season, was one of the driving forces behind the cleanup defensively.
BRANDON â€“ The Starkville Yellowjackets advanced a pair of doubles pairing in tennis for the Class 6A individuals state championship match on Wednesday.
Emily Turner, Hannah Laird, Will Irvin and Richard Hill all moved on with their play at the Class 6A, Region 3 Individual Tournament at Northwest Rankin.
Toxophilite is taking over several students at Starkville High School this year.
When it comes to having a love for archery, which is the meaning of toxophilite, the Yellowjackets have found another way to be competitive within the athletic department and have fun at the same time.
They have participated in four meets in their first-ever season and have performed well.
Control is the name of the game for Starkville Academyâ€™s Harper Arnold.
â€śI like being in command so pitching is my favorite,â€ť Arnold said. â€śI like having control of the game. The game sort of depends on me and I like that.â€ť
Members of the Mississippi State soccer program are happy to be kicking off the activities of Super Bulldog Weekend tonight.
Even though the weekend on a calendar starts on Friday, the Bulldogs are included on the SBW schedule of events with an exhibition match against the University of Alabama. Action at the MSU Soccer Complex is set to begin at 7 p.m.
Super Bulldog Weekend has grown over the years.
It used to offer opportunities for just football and baseball, but now most every sports team at Mississippi State has an opportunity to showcase their skills.
One of those sports is volleyball.
