Black History Month Program at Pass Road Elementary
Black History Month continues as February comes to an end and a local elementary hosted their annual program to celebrate and honor the month long event. News 25’s Payton Malone traveled out to Pass Road Elementary in Gulfport and has more. Black History Month is nearly over and from the sights and sounds at Pass Road Elementary School, students and teachers are wrapping up the month long celebration in a big way. Event Planner Judy Barkum said, “All of our kids participate and they have a ball.” There were even celebrity guest appearances. Students dressed up as prominent figures in black history. There was no shortage of entertainment. This year’s theme was Harlem Renaissance. “There was so much to do because there are writers, there are all kinds of great thinkers from that time and the music. You can’t say enough about the music from the Harlem Renaissance time,” said Barkum. Fourth grader Christian Scruggs is known to steal the show and this year was no different with his impersonation of jazz singer Cab Calloway. While Christian enjoyed performing for his classmates and signing autographs, he understands why this is important. “It’s important to show how black people were able to accomplish things and how they could go to school, like we could go to Pass Road Elementary because if it wasn’t for black history we wouldn’t be able to come here.” Students and parents filled the gym for the show. Performers like third grader Ijahnna Daniel look forward to the event all year long. “Everyone gets to watch and be inspired and learn about our history.” And to continue the celebration of diversity, Pass Road Elementary will also host a Hispanic and Latino celebration in October.

Southern Miss baseball surging into 2018
It wasn’t that long ago that the Southern Miss baseball program was going through a bit of a slump, having missed out on the NCAA tournament from 2012 to 2015. But over the last two years, the Golden Eagles have risen back to the top of Conference USA as they soar into 2018 riding a championship wave of momentum. After going four years without a regional appearance, walk-off home runs and conference titles are once again the tradition of excellence for the Golden Eagles.  Head Coach Scott Berry said, "2012 to 15 where we were just a good program, but at the end of the year we weren't one of the 64 like we wanted to be, but these past two years have created the momentum that certainly we want going into 2018." It all started in the 2016 C-USA tournament title game versus Rice with the walk-off double relay, straight out of a Hollywood movie script and the regional dog pile that ensued. Magic at the Pete lived on in 2017 with a regular season league championship, followed by the first Hattiesburg regional since 2003. Infielder Matthew Guidry said, "Oh, well this program is on the come up for sure. I mean we've already had great success, I mean this program has had success historically for a long time. And especially these last two years just since I've been here, and my eyes have been opened to just how this momentum really is taking charge." Despite setting a school record with 50 wins last season, that momentum faltered in a pair of championship moments, leaving the Black and Gold with unfinished business for the year ahead. Outfielder Mason Irby said, "Yeah, we feel like this program is surging right now, but once we got to postseason play, the conference tournament and the regional didn't really go the way we wanted it to. And so we're looking to this year to when we get to that postseason to be able to have that extra little surge there at the end to hopefully win some more championships this year." That road back to the top starts in the same place against the same team that ended the road in heartbreaking fashion last year against Mississippi State. C-USA Tournament MVP Daniel Keating said, "It's instilled a fire in us for sure. I think saying that we're all excited would be a massive understatement, because as soon as we found out we were going to open up with them this year at our park it was just automatic excitement. The atmosphere surrounding the field is going to be hectic, it's going to be like the regional was and it's just going to be a great opportunity to get some redemption." That three game series between USM and MSU starts February 16th with a 4 p.m. first pitch at Pete Taylor Park.
