HATTIESBURG — The Natchez High School Bulldogs and Lady Bulldogs ended up going 1-2 last week’s Hattiesburg Holiday Tournament with the Bulldogs falling to a good Yazoo City High School team and the Lady Bulldogs being stunned by a not-so-good Terry High School squad.

The Natchez High Bulldogs lost to one of the top teams in MHSAA Class 5A in the Yazoo City High Indians 54-37 last Friday afternoon. Efforts to get in contact with Bulldogs head coach David Haywood for stats and comments on Tuesday morning were unsuccessful.
