The Tribe will host Indianola Gentry Friday in the first round of the state playoffs at 6.

The picture in 3A also came into focus when Yazoo County defeated Humphrey’s County to claim second place in 3-3A. The Bears will host Humphrey’s County Friday in a likely double-header while the Kossuth Aggies will host Yazoo County Thursday at 6 and then travel for a 6 pm game on Friday weather permitting.

In fast-pitch softball Corinth will travel to West Lauderdale Friday for a first round game while Tishomingo County will host Caledonia. Biggersville will have home field in the first round as they play Vardeman and Booneville will play host to Kemper County.

The high school golf playoffs begin next Monday with the girls teeing it up and Tuesday on the boys side. Track and field is still ongoing with area schools boasting several individual qualifiers in different events from the high jump to the pole vault and from the 100-meter dash to the relays.

Good luck to all the area schools still alive in the playoffs and we’ll keep you up-to-date daily on how each team fares until the very end.
