It takes the "whole package" to be successful.
For that reason, Starkville Academy coach Kayla Mosley is calling for more out of her softball team.
"Overall, we've got to start playing more like softball players instead of just being out there," Mosley said. "We have to get to the next level somehow. We are scoring every game, (but we've) just got to back it up and get the whole package going."
The Lady Volunteers put their talents on the line Wednesday against Madison-Ridgeland Academy. While there were a few bright spots, in the end, it was MRA leaving Starkville with the 12-4 win.
One of those bright spots was Mallory Barber who after scoring off an Adrienne Futral single, provided a RBI of her own which allowed Alex McCafferty to come home.
"Mallory is pretty solid at the plate in general," Mosley said. "She has very few strikeouts. She puts the ball in play to give herself a chance to get on base. That is something we have seen all year with her."
