    What pressure? Newalu confident heading into season as Rebs’ SS

    Ole Miss baseball coach Mike Bianco admitted on Monday that sometimes defense — well, reliable defense — can be taken for granted at times.

    That was never more evident than in 2008, when the Rebels transitioned from Zack Cozart at shortstop to a combination of Sean Stuyverson, Tim Ferguson and Evan Button and the trio committed 27 errors.

    The next two seasons, Ole Miss was lucky enough to have Kevin Mort restore order to the position and with any luck, the Rebels are hoping junior college transfer Blake Newalu will be an extension of Mort’s dependability. (February 16, 2011, Page 7)

          Led by a strong defensive effort and an outstanding all-around performance by Shaq Isom, the Lafayette Lady Commodores captured the Region 2-4A Tournament title Monday night at Center Hill.

          LHS defeated Byhalia 70-43 to finish as the No. 1 seed out of the region.
