SPRINGVILLE — Water Valley’s goal of winning the Division 3-3A championship outright and earning a bye to start the 3A playoffs was done in by miscues Thursday night. Six errors doomed the Lady Blue Devils in their 9-8 loss to South Pontotoc in the regular season finale. The Lady Cougars, who rallied to beat WVHS on Monday night in extra innings, scored six of their nine runs due to errors, including the game-winner in the bottom of the seventh inning.

WATER VALLEY — Led by a balanced offensive attack, the Water Valley Lady Blue Devils had little trouble defeating the Byhalia Lady Indians on Thursday.
Water Valley remained unbeaten in District 2-3A play (3-0) by knocking off Byhalia 11-1 in five innings. The Lady Blue Devils left five runners in scoring position in the first three innings, so they could have ended the game even earlier, but coach Clint Faust seemed pleased with the overall production and the 13 hits his group collected.
