SMITH COLUMN: Starkville's 12 All-Stars show fight, determination

July 13, 2014

Smith

It remains to be seen how much farther the Starkville 12-year-old All-Stars can advance at the Dizzy Dean North State Tournament.
If there is one thing the first two days at McKee Park have taught us is there's no counting out Starkville.
For anyone who left Saturday's game early between Starkville and Southaven National, they missed quite an impressive comeback.
Starkville was down 7-2 in the fifth inning, but rallied for a pair of runs in the fifth and seven in the sixth to take an 11-7 victory. It stayed alive in the tournament to play Mathiston today.
The event began easily for Starkville with a 15-1 triumph over another Southaven team, the American, then it lost a 6-5 decision to Grenada Youth when a sixth-inning comeback attempt fell just short.
After suffering a tough 15-9 defeat to Winona earlier on Saturday, Starkville showed it had enough left in the tank to knock off Southaven National.
