Following 32 years of coaching and positively influencing high school football players, when Aug. 5 arrives Indianola Academy’s head football coach Tommy Nester will officially become a member of the MAIS Coaches Hall of Fame.
Playoff time is now looming large for the Indianola Academy baseball team. The 13-7 Colonels will open their best-of-three series Tuesday on the IA field against defending AAA state champion Silliman Institute of Clinton, La.
Ben Van Cleve successfully breaks up an attempted Bayou Academy double play with this hard slide into second base April 13 in Cleveland. Bayou won 2-1 to narrowly win the district championship by a tiebreaker. The Colonels will open postseason play May 1.
Postseason baseball play is now set to begin for the Gentry High Rams. Although still awaiting word on their initial playoff opponent, the 7-11 Rams will open their 4A state playoff competition Friday and will enter the playoffs as the Region 3, No. 4 seed.
This is not just another high school baseball game being played today. With a District 1AAA baseball championship on the line, Indianola Academy and Bayou Academy will take the field at 6 p.m. in Cleveland to settle the matter once and for all.
