It’s Thursday. Championships will be handed out. Baldwyn is going for its first back-to-back titles since now-coach Jason McKay led the Bearcats to them in 1986-87. Here is the preview from today’s #DJournal.
Tomorrow, Booneville and Belmont meet for the Class 3A girls title, an all North Mississippi final between familiar foes. The two have met three times, Belmont winning in the regular season and in the North finals, Booneville beat the Lady Cardinals for 1-3A.
Not many expected either to be here tomorrow, especially not Booneville. Both teams have only one senior, Belmont’s Natasha Jones and Booneville’s Dashiyah Agnew. Here is Michael Smith after still-surprising Booneville beat Cyrstal Springs in Saturday’s semis.
