Calling all cross-country coaches
The high school cross-country season begins this week with Lamar School hosting a meet at Rush Farm in Meridian.
All area coaches are asked to send in their schedules and rosters as soon as possible.
They can be sent by fax to 485-1275 or sent by e-mail to sports@themeridianstar.com. Those sending the information by e-mail are asked not send the schedule and roster as an attachment, but as an actual e-mail.

Chaney off to torrid start
The Kristin Chaney farewell tour at Newton County High School is off to an unbelievable start. Through the Lady Cougars' first five slow-pitch softball games, the senior shortstop is batting .778 (14 for 18).
And many think she's a better defensive player than she is at the plate.

Another long bus ride
Class 5A powerhouses Moss Point and South Panola will have what has become their annual season-opening war Friday night at Batesville. Moss Point has owned the brief series by a 5-1 margin following last year's 7-6 win at Moss Point.
The two schools are over 300 miles apart and have combined to capture six Class 5A state championships.
