6-0 Lady Rockets have busy schedule


The Neshoba Central Lady Rockets are off to a 6-0 start as they go for their 10th fast-pitch state championship in a row and the 12th in program history.

              “We are trying to win them one at a time,” said Coach Zach Sanders. “We are getting everybody healthy and we have our basketball girls back.

              “We  just need to play. Starting this week, we are facing some good competition. We are starting to hit the ball.”

              Pitcher Lanayah Henry is off to a good start. In six games, she hasn’t given up a run.

              The Lady Rockets will be busy the next couple of weeks. They were to play at East Webster on Tuesday, then host South Jones on Thursday. The Lady Rockets travel to the Coast Friday to play in the West Harrison tournament. They take on Sumrall on Friday, and play Hancock and South Panola on Saturday. The following Thursday will see the Lady Rockets play Ethel. They enter the Clarkdale Spring Fling with two games on Friday.


              The Neshoba Central baseball team is going through some rebuilding times after losing 10 players from last year’s that made it to the finals of the state Class 5A state tournament. The Rockets split a pair of games over the weekend, losing to Choctaw County 5-4 in extra innings on Friday and beating Kosciusko 7-2 on Saturday.

              “We are going through a little learning curve,” said Coach Jonathan Jones. “We have some young guys who haven’t played a lot who are learning.”

              The Rockets were to host Choctaw County on Tuesday, host Ethel Thursday and visit West Point on Friday.
