TWENTY YEARS AGO — Playing with a bad shoulder, North Natchez quarterback Kelvin Knight throws a touchdown pass and has a rushing touchdown as the Rams defeat the South Natchez Colonels 28-14. Before the game, Colonels head coach Joey Porter announces his resignation.

TEN YEARS AGO — Thanks to top-10 finishes by Ceressa Rice, Dalphine Firley, Jonda Ross and Shiquita Kelly, Natchez High’s girls track team finishes first and Wilkinson County’s boys team finishes first overall at the Natchez High Cross Country Meet at the Natchez Trace.

FIVE YEARS AGO — Just one year after winning the state championship, the Trinity Saints are in a must-win situation and will need another strong performance from quarterback Ryan Rachal if they are to defeat Tensas Academy and keep their playoff hopes in Class A alive.
