Before the start of the 2012-13 school year, Mikaela Hall and her family moved from Minnesota to the warm climate of the Mississippi Gulf Coast. As the family settled on the western end of the coast, Hall found herself beginning school at Our Lady Academy.
The Crescents had already become the talk of the state when it came to high school volleyball. By that time, the Crescents had won six state titles and had played in six straight state finals.
Hall had played volleyball before back in Minnesota so the formations and calls were not that different. What was different was her teammates, her coaches and the flow of the game in Mississippi. Sep 20, 2016, 17:53
SSC’s Myles Brennan sets a new state career passing record.
The St. Stanislaus Rock-a-chaws got back in the win column on Friday night with a convincing and efficient 40-14 victory over the home-standing d'Iberville Warriors. Along the way, SSC senior quarterback Myles Brennan passed his way into the state record books as he dethroned former SSC All-American quarterback Dylan Favre for the career passing yardage record.
The game was called with 1:10 left in the third quarter due to lightning and the win was awarded to the Rocks. The game does not have to be continued as it is a non-division game. It was called before the start of a second 30-minute rain delay.
In the game, Brennan unofficially threw for 360 yards on 29-for-32 passing and five touchdowns. Favre held the record going into the game with 12,559 yards and Brennan needed just 125 yards to supplant him. Brennan got that on his fifth completion of the night plus a whole lot more.
