Saturday was a special day for a Kosciusko High School Coaching legend and a Weir sports legend. The Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame held induction ceremonies for the six-member Class of 2019, and two have deep local roots.
Kosciusko’s 11 and 12 year old Dixie Youth baseball team won its first three games at the state tournament at Hugh Ellard Park, but then lost twice last Sunday, ending its run in the double elimination tournament.
It's the Mississippi Association of Coaches (MAC) annual convention week. A time for high school coaches from throughout the state to converge on the Jackson area to soak up knowledge and renew friendships.
The Dixie Youth state baseball tournament for 11 and 12 year olds at Kosciusko’s Hugh Ellard Park will begin Friday after a one-week delay due to heavy rain from Tropical Storm Barry that hit the area last weekend.
