  • Blue Lick wins third straight...

     OKOLONA -- Brian Shirley has coached baseball for over 20 years, so you shouldn’t expect there to be any nerves as he guides the Blue Lick 18U team in the state tournament.

    But, after serving as an assistant coach on the squad’s back-to-back state titles, Shirley admitted to being just a little nervous.

    With the exception of one inning, there was no reason for nerves as Blue Lick swept through all four games to claim its third straight state title.
