Starkville is gearing up for a â€śbattleâ€ť on the golf course.
The Yellowjackets will face off against their 10 district foes today as they host the Class 6A, Region 1 Tournament on the Mississippi State Golf Course.
â€śThis will see who qualifies for the state tournament,â€ť Starkville coach Sam Bryant said. â€śThey will take the top four teams out of our district, which has 10 teams, so it will be a battle for those spots.â€ť
Among those competing along with the Jackets are Columbus, Tupelo, Grenada, Olive Branch, Southaven, South Panola, Horn Lake, DeSoto Central and Hernando. With such a strong group of competitors, Bryant said the opportunity to host is a big advantage.
