Cory Guyton enters his second season at Kosciusko with a better understanding of the program, and his players have a year’s worth of experience with his coaching style. The former Choctaw County head coach is ready to take his new program to the next level.
Youth is the theme for both Kosciusko’s boys and girls soccer squads this season, but head coach Greg Cooper is confident enough in the abilities of his small number of returning players that he does not expect that youth to negatively impact both programs.
Kosciusko finished tenth in the girls 4A state cross country meet and seventeenth in the boys meet last week.
Kosciusko entered five runners each in the boys and girls races, all underclassmen. Team scores were 278 for the girls and 450 for the boys.
Jaquan Hall scored a team-high 17 points last Tuesday to help lead the Kosciusko boys to their first win of the season as the Whippets defeated Germantown 50-49. Hall was 6 of 11 from the field and 1 of 4 from 3-point territory.
The Kosciusko High School football team has to put last week’s regular-season ending 55-7 loss to reigning MHSAA Class 4A State Champion Louisville High School behind it, as the Whippets prepare to open the Class 4A playoffs this week on the road against Rosa Fort.
