COACH’S QUOTE: “Chamberlain was unbelievable. She gave up just 14 hits in the five games in this tournament. Both teams were beaten down and tired at the end of the tournament, but I told the girls that I could not be happier with the way they played during this first week of the season. We have a lot to look forward to,” — Tupelo head coach Jason Trimmer.
Record: Tupelo is 3-3
