WATER VALLEY — After playing Oxford on Thursday night the Lafayette High softball team turned their sights the other area team in Water Valley.

      BASEBALL PREVIEW: Devils enter 2015 with questions at key positions

      Water Valley has turned into a regular participant in the MHSAA Class 3A playoffs. Getting back to the postseason is going to require contributions from some new faces in new places. Gone are shortstop Cole Camp and catcher Taylor Smith, who combined for eight years of starting experience before their eligibility ran out. The Blue Devils also have to replace the power of outfielder Dillon Zinn and the pitching of Cody Greer, who sat at the top of Water Valley’s rotation for the last three seasons. (February 23, 2015, Page 6)

          Defer’s career game leads WVHS to Senior Night win

          WATER VALLEY — Skyler Defer scored, dunked, bled and even lost some of the food he ate earlier in the day.

Defer accounted for nearly half of the Blue Devils’ offense, dropping a career-high 40 points to help Water Valley overcome a furious second-half rally by M.S. Palmer in a 90-83 victory Friday on Senior Night at the WVHS gym. (February 15, 2015, Page 4B)

                  ALL-AREA FOOTBALL: Phillips hits stride to run up record season for Chargers

                  Oxford coach Johnny Hill isn’t all that surprised by what his running back was able to do on the football field this season. Not after seeing what he did when he wasn’t necessarily the go-to guy. No tailback in school history has run for more yards than Kenzie Phillips did this fall. In just his second season as a full-time starter, the junior set a record with 1,737 yards. His 29 rushing touchdowns are also a new single-season record, breaking his own mark of 24 set just last season. His performance makes him this year’s EAGLE Player of the Year. Phillips is the third straight Charger to earn the distinction. (December 23, 2014, Page 1B, 3B)

                    Blue Devils run past J.Z. George in home opener

                    WATER VALLEY – Water Valley’s boys basketball team was too fast for J.Z. George. It was a small taste of the kind of frenetic pace opponents will have to deal with this season from the Blue Devils under first-year coach Larry Taylor. Water Valley applied full-court pressure after every made basket, greeted every ball handler with a trap at half-court, and turned every miss by J.Z. George into a race to the other end, overwhelming the Jaguars in a 73-30 rout Tuesday night in its home opener at the WVHS gym. (December 10, 2014, Page 2B)
