Drewry sisters place high at rodeo nationals

Local sisters Megan (left) and Morgan Drewry traveled to Guthrie, Okla., last week for the National Little Britches Rodeo finals at Lazy E Ranch. It was the first effort on the national level for the Kossuth students, and they represented Mississippi and Alcorn County admirably. Morgan finished 10th in the pole bending event out of 156 riders, while Megan finished 28th in barrel racing out of 187 riders.. "We really didn't know what to expect, but let's just say we have never experienced a rodeo quite like it," said the girls' dad Barry Drewry. "When you have 1,200 contestants and over 1,800 horses at one location, it's overwhelming."

Patterson and Patterson return to Warriors backfield
(**This is worded correctly. Zack AND Tam Patterson are both in the same backfield at CHS..thus the headline)

Corinth running back Zack Patterson, shown running against Pontotoc in the MHSAA playoffs at Warrior Stadium last November, will team up again with Tam Patterson in the Warriors backfield this fall in hopes of a return to the state playoffs with a much deeper run. Read the feature story to discover just where the Tribe stands heading into fall camp, which begins July 30.



Can Lady Bears repeat last year's success?


Daily Corinthian file photo

Julianna Potts (center), flanked by departed seniors Olivia Wilson (left) and Mallory Wigginton in playoff action last fall at home against St. Joseph's, will return as a projected leader of the 2018 Alcorn Central volleyball team. The Lady Bears, who lost in the state semifinals against eventual state champion OLA in 2017, lost eight seniors from that team but return a solid core of returnees and an influx of younger players from the highly-successful JV girls program. Head coach Eric Lancaster said he expects his team to continue to compete at a high level despite the heavy losses in personnel. Central begins the season Aug. 4 in the Pontotoc Shootout and host New Albany the following Tuesday.
