WATER VALLEY — The clicking sound in Haley Vance’s ankle was loud enough for her to hear it. Her final basketball game as a Water Valley Lady Blue Devil resulted in a sprained ankle and while that didn’t make an impact for the girls basketball team, a bum ankle wasn’t a good thing for the softball team and first-year coach Casey Clouse.
Fortunately for Vance and the rest of her teammates, she was able to recover from the sprained ankle in time, and once she got her timing back at the plate, she was able deliver a great performance in her final year wearing blue and white. (June 7, 2012, Page 1B)
Oxford softball coach Lauren Hill allowed her Lady Chargers a chance to rest and refocus on the next phase of the MHSAA’s Class 5A playoffs Monday. If it was up to the Lady Chargers, they would have played their first game with McComb instead of waiting until Thursday.

Hill said the two wins really energized a group that is still learning how to compete at this new level. (April 24, 2012, Page 9)
