This just in, from this afternoon’s contest:

The MSPOL 2013 State Finals Contest – held on Thursday, March 7 – will be broadcast by Mississippi Public Television on Saturday, March 9, following the basketball tournament – probably around 4PM. Our new 2013 State Champion is Akane Little, a senior at Starkville HS. Second place went to senior Denzell Jones from Water Valley HS and third went to Bailey Brilley, a junior at St. Joseph Catholic HS in Madison.

Congratulations to Akane and to all the other contestants!
