TEN YEARS AGO — Natchez High senior David Haywood is named to the Class 5A All-State First Team and head coach Mike Martin will be an assistant coach for Mississippi at the Alabama-Mississippi All-Star Game.

FIVE YEARS AGO — Brian Pettway blows a save opportunity in the top of the ninth inning, but he drives in the game-winning run in the bottom of the ninth as the Ole Miss Rebels defeat Southeast Missouri State 6-5.
