SOFTBALL PREVIEW: Blue Devils enter new season with new faces on the mound, at key positions

It will be a rebuilding year of sorts for the Water Valley softball team this season. After getting bounced out of the opening round of the MHSAA Class 3A playoffs by Mooreville last season, the Blue Devils hope to improve on that. (February 22, 2015, Page 2B)

    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. Water Valley’s senor guard did whatever it took to go out a winner in his final home game. 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)

          WATER VALLEY — Skyler Defer has played all over the field for Water Valley’s baseball team the last two seasons, but the rising senior is going to the next level for one reason.

            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)
