TEN YEARS AGO — Former Natchez resident Bert Greene, who played on the PGA Tour in the 1960s and 1970s, shoots a 3-under-par 68 to take a three-shot lead at the end of the first round of the Gulf States PGA Senior Championship at Belwood Country Club.

FIVE YEARS AGO — Ashley Sykes and Brittany Smith each hit home runs and Mandy Smith goes 4-for-4 with a double and a triple as the Brookhaven Lady Panthers overcome nine errors to take a 12-11 win over the Natchez High Lady Bulldogs, who commit eight errors of their own.
