‘Cats pounce on opportunities

WATER VALLEY — The Wildcats made the most of their limited opportunities and the Blue Devils didn’t.

An opportunistic Independence club plated three early runs in its second-round opener at Blue Devil Field and that’s all that was needed to claim a 3-0 victory against Water Valley. (May 6, 2013, Page 7A)

Confident Blue Devils ready for ‘Cats

A more confident Water Valley baseball team will tackle the next round of the MHSAA Class 3A playoffs against a familiar foe in Independence. The Blue Devils are feeling good after defeating Belmont, last year’s 3A North Half representatives, in the first round. (May 2, 2013, Page 10)

Blue Devils streaking into posteason

The phrase “getting hot at the right time” definitely applies to the Water Valley Blue Devils. Heading into their MHSAA Class 3A playoff series against Belmont, the Blue Devils have won six straight games and posted an 8-3 mark in April overall. The results have pleased coach Kary Bridges, whose team finished with a 7-3 mark in Division 2-3A play to earn the No. 2 seed.

Blue Devils top Cougars to make 3A playoffs

WATER VALLEY  — The smile on Kary Bridges’ face said all that needed to be said about Tuesday’s 4-2 win over South Pontotoc at Blue Devil Field. Water Valley’s baseball leader may not have any hair later this week — Bridges made a bet he was to shave his head if his team won — because of the Blue Devils’ most recent 2-3A victory that garnered them a spot in the playoffs, but he likely won’t care.

Greer leads Blue Devils past Troopers

WATER VALLEY — Three nights after being beaten soundly by Division 2-3A rival Mooreville, the Water Valley Blue Devils rebounded behind the pitching of ace Cody Greer and some of the best offense of the season.

Water Valley defeated the Troopers 7-1 Friday night to improve to 3-2 in the division and thanks to a 9-0 win over Bruce on Saturday, is 10-8 overall.

Clement, Devils polish off Bruce

WATER VALLEY — A third straight complete-game effort on the mound highlighted the final game of the Water Valley Spring Break Tournament.

Ace effort from Defer lifts Blue Devils

WATER VALLEY — Skyler Defer had a feeling he was going to pitch well and help lead the Water Valley Blue Devils to a win over Senatobia Monday night when he was warming up in the bullpen.

What Defer may not have realized was just how well he would pitch; despite feeling as good as he did on the mound early, he would become the first on the pitching staff to record a complete-game effort this season. (March 12, 2013, Page 8)

Bishop, Taylor lead ‘Dores past Devils

After winning in extra innings against cross-town rival Oxford on Friday night, Lafayette coach Patrick Robey was a little worried about how his team would respond when it hosted Water Valley on Saturday afternoon.

That worry was put to rest though as the Commodores knocked off the Blue Devils 8-1 at W.V. Brewer Field.
