Kossuth dusts Devils to advance

KOSSUTH—Water Valley’s second trip up to face the Aggies on their home field didn’t turn out nearly as well as the trip Thursday night. Just two days after blanking Kossuth 3-0 in the first game of the MHSAA’s Class 3A second round series, the Blue Devils were packing up their baseball gear until summer ball starts in June.

Kossuth rallied to take the final two games of the series with the Blue Devils thanks a 14-2 win at WVHS on Friday night and a 12-5 win at KHS on Saturday afternoon. The Blue Devils (17-13 overall) fell behind 4-0 in the bottom of the first inning Saturday on a grand slam from David Gibson and never got any closer than three runs. Kossuth, who now faces South Pontotoc in the quarterfinals, then put the game on ice with five runs in the fifth inning and three more in the sixth.

WVHS coach Kary Bridges praised the Aggies (19-6) before the start of the series and remained complementary after the series was over. (April 30, 2012, Page 9)

WINONA — Water Valley coach Kary Bridges wanted his team to “add on” heading into the final inning against Winona on Saturday afternoon.

Conard comes through for Blue Devils

WATER VALLEY — Kary Bridges saw the game-winning play developing well before it actually happened on the diamond Thursday evening.

WVHS trading power for athleticism

The times they are a-changin’ around the Water Valley baseball team.
