The Golden Bears didn’t hibernate during the summer.

Alcorn Central turned in a 4-1-1 mark during the annual Summer Northeast Mississippi Coaches for Better Baseball (NEMCABB) Championships, reaching the quarterfinals of the 25-team, 24-school tournament.

Central won the Region 1 Tournament, which also included host Corinth, Kossuth and Tishomingo County. AC and Corinth both finished 2-0-1 in the Pool -- tying 3-3 in their contest -- with Central winning via tiebreaker.

Corinth bowed out of the single-elimination championship on Monday, falling to host New Albany 7-5. The Warriors finished the event with a 2-1-1 mark.

Two-time Class 3A champion Kossuth was eliminated from championship play on Monday with a 6-0 loss to Lafayette County. The Aggies went 1-2 at the Region 1 tourney.

Central beat South Pontotoc 9-3 on Monday. The Bears reached the quarterfinal round with a 7-2 win over Houston on Tuesday.

Central’s run ended later in the day with a 7-1 loss to Itawamba.

Play continues today at the New Albany Sportsplex with semifinal and championship action. Itawamba and Grenada vie in one half of the bracket and Tupelo-1 and North Pontotoc play on the other side.

Both semifinal games will be play at 4, with the title contest set for a 6:15 start.
