Choctaws 5 9

On a clear comfortable Tuesday night here at Tim and Nancy Harvey Stadium at Dave "Boo" Ferriss Field, eager fans packed the bleachers to watch the last game of the evening in the third day of the Gulf South Conference Baseball Tournament.

The top seeded Delta State University Statesmen played the fourth seeded Mississippi College Choctaws in a showdown of in-state conference rivals in Pool A. DSU defeated MC in two out of three games to close out the regular season, but both the Statesmen and Choctaws were a perfect 2-0 in the GSC Tournament heading into Tuesday’s game.

Statesmen use eighth inning rally to triumph over Tigers

Sometimes, all it takes is some late inning magic especially when you get into postseason play.

Some late inning fireworks were what the top seeded Delta State University Statesmen needed against the eighth seeded University of West Alabama Tigers, as they scored four runs in the bottom of the eighth to win 6-2 in the first round of the Gulf South Conference Baseball Tournament here Sunday at Tim and Nancy Harvey Stadium at Dave “Boo” Ferriss Field.

DSU’s offense thriving in a big way heading into GSC Tournament

Shannon Home Run

Offense has been the name of the game for the Delta State University Statesmen this baseball season.

The Statesmen lead the Gulf South Conference in batting average (.334), on-base percentage (.432), slugging percentage (.512), hits (548), home runs (64), RBIs (405), runs scored (444) and hit by pitches (88). They are also second in walks (221) and have struck out the fewest times (220) of any team in the conference. In fact, they’re the only team in the conference that has walked more than struck out.

Colts end season with 15th straight postseason trip

Coach Reed 5 4

With Bayou's 8-3 loss to the Heritage Academy Patriots in game two of the first round of the AAA State Baseball Playoffs Thursday night in Columbus, the Bayou Academy Colts closed out their season in the first round of the playoffs.

The season for Bayou was a very up and down year as the Colts finished the season 15-15 but they managed to finish second in District 1-AAA which gave them their 15 consecutive trip to the playoffs. That's an impressive string considering the fact that in the Mississippi Association of Independent Schools you have to finish first or second in your district to advance to the postseason and to do that for consecutive 15 years, says a lot about the program's talent and coaches.
