Second-year Nanih Waiya head football coach James Courtney has no problem whatsoever putting a little pressure on his football team. He let them know very clearly that it was imperative that his Warriors beat visiting Tupelo Christian Prep last Friday night.
It was a good week for the Noxapater volleyball team, as the Lady Tigers earned district wins over Kemper County and West Lowndes. Head coach Pam Mills hopes that success carries over to this week as her girls were set to face a pair of tough foes in Amory on Tuesday and Grace Christian on Thursday.
The Lady Tigers of Noxapater were looking for a little success this week as they continue a four-match homestand by hosting Kemper County on Tuesday and West Lowndes on Thursday.
The homestand began last Thursday with a four-set loss to Aberdeen and will conclude when Amory pays a visit on Sept. 17.
The Noxapater football team faced its share of adversity, including a pair of injuries to key parts of the offense, in a 22-7 home loss lo Starkville Academy on Friday night. But head coach Casey Orr says his team must rebound and be ready to perform when the Tigers travel to face Smithville this Friday at 7.
Don’t misunderstand, Nanih Waiya head football coach James Courtney was very pleased that his Warriors picked up their first win of the season last Friday night with a 27-13 road win over Choctaw Central. But he also knows if his team is going to be competitive in MHSAA Class 1A there needs to be some growth.
Corey McCullough knew just what he wanted to do when he signed with Alcorn State University to play football four years ago after closing out his career at Louisville High School.
Looks can be deceiving.
The Noxapater volleyball team may not have won any of the six sets they played last week, but head coach Pam Mills said the experience her Lady Tigers gained was invaluable.
To say the Nanih Waiya football team is an unusual position is an understatement. The defending MHSAA Class 1A State Champions find themselves at 0-2 headed into the third week fo the season.
But second-year NW head coach James Courtney says it’s far from panic time.
Everybody gets hit with a punch now and then. It’s how you respond that matters.
Noxapater head football coach Casey Orr was more than satisfied with the way his Tigers dealt with a little adversity in their 32-15 road win over Eupora on Friday night.
