It wasn't the type of baseball seasons that the Starkville Yellowjackets and the Starkville Academy Volunteers wanted to see.
Neither team qualified for the postseason and SHS just squeaked out a winning season with a 14-13 record.
Even though the Jackets and Vols may be down right now, things have a chance to be better in the near future.
Starkville High graduated four seniors, while Starkville Academy had only a pair of seniors, so the core of each squad will be returning next year. That should give each program a measure of hope.
