Tupelo Christian lost eight starters from last season’s Class 1A North semifinal team. The young Eagles won’t be young for long. Wednesday was the second game of an eight-day stretch that features Lafayette, nationally-ranked DeSoto Central, Grenada, Pascagoula, Bartlett and Sumrall.
“Playing these good teams in the long run, in the playoffs in 1A obviously they’re not near as good as these 6A teams we’re playing,” said TCPS senior pitcher JG Lipscomb. “We’re trying to play these hard teams, that way in the playoffs, the 1A teams will be easier.”
Here is a link to TCPS’ closer-than-it-appears 7-0 loss last night against loaded and No. 13-ranked DeSoto.
