Sports

Sports teams are vital to small towns in general, and that vitality may be doubly important to places such as Leakesville, Sand Hill, State Line, and McLain in Greene County. Here fall’s Friday-night-lights gatherings corral locals from a broad swath of acreage around the rural countryside and beyond. And in summer, local organized t-ball, and baseball are extremely popular for kids, and parents of all ages.

Chickasawhay River at Leakesville

The Chickasawhay River is a river, about 210 miles (340 km) long, in southeastern Mississippi in the United States. It is a principal tributary of the Pascagoula River, which flows to the Gulf of Mexico. The Chickasawhay's tributaries also drain a portion of western Alabama. The name "Chickasawhay" comes from the Choctaw word chikashsha-ahi, literally "Chickasaw potato". The boat ramp to the Chickasawhay River in Leakesville is perfect for putting in your boat, kayak, or rafting and is a popular place for local fishermen. wikipedia

The Leaf River rises in the Bienville National Forest in southwestern Scott County and flows initially southward through eastern Smith, northeastern Covington, western Jones, and northern Forrest Counties to Hattiesburg, where it collects the Bouie River. Below Hattiesburg, the river turns southeastward and flows through central Perry and southwestern Greene Counties, skirting the edge of the De Soto National Forest, into northern George County, where it joins the Chickasawhay River to form the Pascagoula River. wikipedia
