Published 7:41 pm Tuesday, September 9, 2008

Both Picayune and Poplarville have enjoyed some success so far in the prep slow pitch softball season.

But beginning this week, what the Lady Tide and Lady Hornets have accomplished so far this year won’t matter near as much as what happens from here on out.

Both Poplarville and Picayune begin district play over the next several days, with the Lady Hornets getting started tonight and the Lady Tide following suit on Thursday night.
