WINONA – A man is facing charges for purposefully setting fire to a duplex apartment.
J.Z. George had three wins and a loss in the past week. The Jaguars swept Ruleville Central in a doubleheader and defeated Holmes County Central, but lost to Humphreys County.
The Jaguars received 35 walks in beating Ruleville Central 21-11 and 13-4.
Winona easily won the boys and girls 2-2A track meet last week. The boys finished with 161 points to 89 for runner-up Calhoun City. They were followed by Leflore County with 87 points, Eupora with 24 and East Webster with 7.
Winona swept a softball doubleheader with J.Z. George, winning 28-1 and 16-0. Both games lasted three innings.
“My girls made a lot of errors in the field and just couldn't get their bats on the ball like they needed,” said J.Z. George Coach Jamie Tucker. The Lady Jaguars managed four hits in the two games.
A two-run homer by Sara Neely O'Bryant in the bottom of the seventh pulled Winona within a run of Bruce at 3-2 Monday but the Lady Tigers were unable to produce the equalizer.
“We couldn't do anything after that,” said coach Steven Helms.
Winona was shut out twice last week, 7-0 against Calhoun City and 11-0 against Eupora.
Sisters will lead the Winona track team when the Lady Tigers host the Region 2-2A meet April 12. Sophomore Tyra Weathersby and senior Natori Weathersby are both defending gold medalists from the 2017 MHSAA 2A state meet.
