Water Valley Sports

What you’ll find in today’s EAGLE, plus one man’s prep poll

The last 24 hours have been quite busy for the Ole Miss football program. Instead of focusing solely on the season-opener against Jacksonville State, the Rebels were dealt the news yesterday that quarterback transfer Jeremiah Masoli’s waiver was denied by the NCAA. As if that wasn’t bad enough, the Rebels will also be without senior defensive end Kentrell Lockett in the season opener because of a heart issue. (more…) (September 1, 2010)

    3-0 win not enough for Lady Commodores

    Last season’s run to the Class 4A state tournament has lit a fire under the Lafayette Lady Commodores volleyball team.

    That fact was never more evident than on Tuesday, when despite beating Water Valley 3-0 (25-18, 25-11, 25-14) the Lady Commodores still wanted more. (September 1, 2010, Page 7)

        Blue Devils’ defense pounds Pirates in win

        The sweat that rolled down  the face of Water Valley senior linebacker J.D. Fondon following Friday night’s 28-0 win over Coffeeville was like a refreshing rain in the midst of drought.

        A year after giving up 34 points in a home loss to the Pirates, Fondon wanted to make sure that the Blue Devils got some revenge on their Yalobusha County rival to the south. Leading the Wrecking Crew defense, Fondon and company battered and bruised the Pirates all night when they had the ball. (August 30, 2010, Page 1B)

            Wrecking Crew’s swagger tough to match

            During Water Valley’s preseason game against Vardaman, a message was sent to opposing teams — look out.

            To say the Blue Devils have a mean streak might be an understatement; junior cornerback Chris Conard made that blatantly clear during Water Valley’s preseason game against Vardaman when he came downhill on a kickoff and knocked out a 270-pound player, literally.

            It’s that kind of take-no-prisoners attitude that is expected to be on display all season. (August 27, 2010, Page 6A)

              Blue Devils need another great effort Friday

              Another great effort, similar to what they gave in the season opener against Bruce, is what the Water Valley Blue Devils will be looking to achieve Friday night against Yalobusha County rival Coffeeville.

              The annual Railroad Trophy game will be played in Coffeeville this year. Kickoff is set for 7:30 p.m. and the game can be heard locally on WTNM (105.5 FM). (August 26, 2010, Page 6)

                Lady ‘Dores knock off WVHS

                A complete team effort proved to be the key to a 3-0 (25-9, 25-18, 25-6) win for the Lafayette Lady Commodores over the Water Valley Lady Blue Devils Tuesday.

                A day after LHS defeated Senatobia to win its first district match of the season, the team turned around Tuesday and recorded another important district win over WVHS. LHS topped Senatobia 3-0 on Monday and then handled Water Valley with the use of a solid service game and aggressive kill shots.

                For LHS coach Rachel Wenzel, playing back-to-back days was a good thing because her team will have to play three matches on Saturday in the Tupelo Volleyfest. (August 25, 2010, Page 9)

                    Water Valley survives OT scare

                    It took late-game heroics, but the Water Valley Blue Devils were able to survive an overtime scare to defeat the Bruce Trojans 13-7 Friday at Bobby Clark Field.

                    “You win football games by fighting and scrapping and we did that,” WVHS coach Brad Embry told his team after the game. “It doesn’t matter how you get it done on Friday night.”

                    Senior Eric Buckley scored on a 4-yard run to open the overtime period, but a botched extra-point attempt gave the Trojans a chance to go ahead on the ensuing possession.

                    With the season-opener on the line, Water Valley’s Wrecking Crew defense answered the call of its coach. (August 23, 2010, Page 3B)
