Phillips-led Lady Devils looking for improvement

The Water Valley Lady Blue Devils basketball team is hoping to take the program to another level heading into their second year under coach Jason Purdy.

It’s because of what Purdy has seen during preseason practices that he believes the Lady Blue Devils can take a step in the right direction to improve upon last season, which ended with a first-round loss in the playoffs. (November 3, 2010, Page 6)

Robison’s return to LHS makes impact on team

The final chapter in Stormy Robison’s prep softball career has turned out to be another stepping stone for the ever improving Lafayette Lady Commodore softball program.

After spending two seasons at South Panola, Robison returned to LHS this past season to finish out her stellar career at the place she has always felt very comfortable at.

While Robison wasn’t ultimately able to push LHS to even greater heights in the Class 4A playoffs, her leadership qualities and strong work ethic definitely made an impression on a young LHS team that is expected to be strong over the next few years.

Robison said she really enjoyed her time with her teammates this year and added that she never felt any pressure from them to help them win a state title like she helped the Lady Tigers do in 2008. (June 24, 2010, Page 1B)

Nettleton too much for WVHS

It was no secret that the Nettleton Lady Tigers softball team was a good team.

On Thursday, Nettleton displayed just how good they really were, defeating the Water Valley Lady Blue Devils 13-1 in five innings to take Game 1 of their Class 3A playoff series. (April 30, 2010, Page 8A)

Isom’s all-around game leads to Player of Year honor

There was a game early on in the season where the light turned on for Lafayette’s Shaquilla Isom and things got a whole lot easier on the court. It’s not that Isom hadn’t shown flashes of her all-around ability as a sophomore, but there was a marked difference in the way she handled herself on the court compared to any point during the 2008-09 campaign. (April 13, 2010, Page 1B)

Robison solid again for Lady ‘Dores

Backed by another standout pitching performance from Stormy Robison, the Lafayette Lady Commodores defeated Water Valley 6-1 Saturday at LHS.

Two days after Robison recorded a no-hitter against divisional-foe Senatobia at home, she recorded a one-hit effort against a very good Lady Blue Devil team that started the season with eight-straight wins. (April 5, 2010, Page 6A)

New Albany no match for WVHS in grand opener

WATER VALLEY—The first time was the charm for the Water Valley girls softball team on Friday against the New Albany Lady Bulldogs. Playing on their brand new softball field, and in front of a capacity crowd, the Lady Blue Devils routed New Albany 14-1 in five innings. (March 22, 2010, Page 10)
