Over this last week and a half of 2008, Newscenter 11 is looking back at the top local sports stories of the year.
Today, we are at number eight in our countdown--the continued dominance of slowpitch and fastpitch softball teams in East Mississippi.
Back in April, Southeast Lauderdale, Newton County, Enterprise and Clarkdale made it to their respective South State finals, with Clarkdale and Newton County bringing home state crowns.
And in October, no less than four area teams made it to Jackson for the state championships; Meridian, Quitman, Newton County and Clarkdale.
Once again, the Lady Cougars of Newton County and Lady Bulldogs from Clarkdale brought home the gold.
