Thursday's bowling match between the Neshoba Central Bowling Team and Starkville was a success in every aspect.

To start off there was a wonderful turnout of spectators to cheer for their respective teams. The bowlers were proud to have such a big showing of support from family, friends, and school representatives Tommy Dearing, superintendent of education; Mr. Michael Thomas, athletic director; and Tommy Holland, NCMS principal. Hope all enjoyed themselves and will come again.

The Rockets were honored to have Neshoba Central High School's Chorus and NJROTC Color Guard present to open the competition. Commander Chris Rowell began the event with the introduction of the cadets and the chorus members. Cadets presenting the colors were Peyton Williamson, Nicole Fincher, Reagan Hickman, Lauren Hancock, and Deandre Dupont. Singing the National Anthem a cappella was Ben Pace. Thank you for making the first home match for the bowling team special.

A surprise to the bowling team was the arrival of WTOK. Louis Montesi III, the sports anchor/reporter from WTOK came to do a feature on Neshoba Central's newest sport. Mr. Montesi will return in January to complete the feature. Airing date to be announced.

Finally, and most importantly, congratulations to the Rockets for their victory over the Starkville Yellow Jackets. The boys' and girls' squads each won their matches 5-1. Fantastic bowling! Season record to date now stands at 1-0-1. The Bowling Team's next match will be here at Depot Bowling tomorrow at 4 p.m. It is a phone-in competition against Tupelo.

The Thursday Adult League and the Sunday Youth League each resumed their season after the Thanksgiving break. Bowling and fellowship were enjoyed by all. There are only a few weeks left of this season so it's time for new members to join for the season beginning in January. Choose the league that fits your needs: Monday Night Men's, Thursday Night Mixed, Wednesday Restaurant Mixed, Saturday Youth/Adult, or Sunday Youth.
