SSC storms into state finals with 62-28 victory over Lawrence County The St. Stanislaus Rock-a-chaws left no doubt which 4A team would be representing the south in the state championship next weekend. The Rocks (11-3) upended the Lawrence County Cougars 62-28 for their third consecutive playoff road win. More importantly though, the win punches SSC's ticket to the Class 4A state finals for the second straight year and third time in school history. The win also sets up a rematch of last year's final with Noxubee County.
SSC head coach Bill Conides commented, "We are almost there. This team has done everything in their power to put themselves in this position. Even when we were 1-3 early on, this team never doubted that they were a good team. Defense played lights out in the second half which had become their mantra in the playoffs. Offensively, we wanted to throw the football tonight and we did. I am very proud of these players. They have earned this opportunity." Nov 28, 2015, 06:00

Today, Matti will take the field with her sister, Maycee, and childhood friend, Amy Love, while her parents, Matt and Connally, view from the stands. All three girls are Rebelettes and all are graduates of Our Lady Academy.

Ladner ready for second season at SELA The 2015-16 basketball season is underway at Southeastern Louisiana University in Hammond. This season will also mark the second one that has Hancock County native and former SSC basketball coach Jay Ladner at the reigns.
Currently, the Lions are 0-2 on the young season with losses at TCU and Texas A&M. However, tonight the Lions have their home opener against Mississippi College.
Ladner and his Lions ended last year with a record of 9-23 overall and a 6-12 Southland Conference mark.
