Just received word from the MHSAA that today’s state championship series will begin as scheduled. It’s stopped raining in Pearl, and the forecast isn’t calling for any more.
Tupelo and Ocean Springs open play at 4 p.m. in Class 5A action, then Vicksburg and East Central tangle at 7 in 4A. Gene Phelps is on his way for the Tupelo game.
