AMORY – The Mantachie Mustangs just missed out on a playoff spot in 2014 after graduating a ton of talent the season before.

FULTON – IAHS captured the division 1-4A title last week, and were rewarded with facing the No. 4 seed Caledonia Confederates from a very baseball-stout division 4-4A.

TREMONT – The Tremont Eagles closed out a painful 2015 baseball season on the short end of three lopsided losses to the Falkner Eagles and Pine Grove Panthers.
