Chris Byrd is out as Kossuth girls basketball coach.
That’s the big news this week. Brad and Dalton discuss the move (1:25), which Alcorn County School District Superintendent Larry Mitchell says was prompted by a verbal agreement – an agreement Byrd says never existed.
Another area coach is also on the move – Mooreville’s Jeff Tally is headed for retirement (6:20). He’s been at his alma mater since 1989 and has served in a variety of roles, including as athletics director since 2010.
On the baseball diamond, Mooreville swung for the fences Tuesday and picked up an important division win against Pontotoc (9:40). Jacob Hughes hit two home runs, including a tie-breaking grand slam, for the Troopers.
Tupelo’s baseball team continues to roll along (12:23). The Golden Wave are undefeated in division play but have to face a tough Oxford squad twice next week.
The guys also discuss Division 1-2A (13:58), which is loaded with the likes of East Union, Baldwyn and New Site.
And finally, they present Athletes of the Week (14:58), featuring a couple of players swinging hot bats.
