TWENTY YEARS AGO — Natchez’ John Beylouni, the No. 1 seed in the Boys 12 division, loses to Fletcher Whitwell of Oxford, an old nemesis of his, 6-4, 6-4 in the finals of the Mississippi Junior Closed Tennis Tournament and in the process lost his top ranking.

TEN YEARS AGO — David Alton New III has two doubles and Phillip Eidt hits a home run during a five-run fifth inning as the Natchez Rebel League 9- and 10-year-old All-Stars hold on for a 16-11 win over Greenwood to win the state championship.

FIVE YEARS AGO — With one out in the bottom of the seventh inning, Chris Stinson first steals second base and then third base and a throwing error allows him to score as the Natchez Wallace League defeats Carthage 2-1 to advance to the title game of the Major League State Tournament.
