There is story after story about teamâ€™s coming from the underdog position to do great things.
This weekend Starkville's 12-year-old squad became one of those.
After dropping into the loserâ€™s bracket on day two of the Dizzy Dean North State Tournament, Starkville battled its way back to a spot in the championship game.
â€śMost coaches would say being in the loserâ€™s bracket is a scary feeling,â€ť Starkville coach Leonardo Thompson said. â€śFor us, it was our friend. We were able to play more games and the more we played the stronger we got. The team gelled together and that is what carried us through.â€ť
