Former Bears Headed To NAIA World Series
Release Date:5/25/2017
Southwest Mississippi Community College

With four former players taking the field, Southwest baseball will be well represented when the Avista-NAIA World Series gets underway Thursday in Lewiston, Idaho.

Playing for the Faulkner University Eagles is former Bears outfielder LD Coney (North Pike High School). Hitting the diamond for the William Carey University Crusaders are former infielder/pitchers Sam Richard (Ridgeland High School) and Dylan Spiers (Pearl River Central High School) and former pitcher Braden Smith (Loyd Star High School).

The Crusaders make their Series debut Thursday at 5:00 (central time) when they face the Hope International University Royals. The Eagles’ first game is scheduled for 5:00 Friday when they face the winner of Thursday’s game between the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma Drovers and The Master’s University (CA) Mustangs.

Coney said “It means a lot to me to attend the World Series with the team and the brothers I have. For our team to be successful, we have to play our game and execute.” He said if the Eagles follow their team mottos (‘Shut up and do your job’ and “No excuses’), he feels “we have a pretty high chance of winning” the championship.”

He said he wanted to thank Bears’ assistant coach Justin Hay “for helping me out in getting to Faulkner. I really made the right decision.”

To Richard, in his final season with the Crusaders, making it to the World Series “means a lot. I thought throughout the year we had a shot to get to this point, but I still can barely believe it. I feel like it hasn’t even hit me yet.”

Richard said being a part of the Bears helped him prepare for this time in his career because “we faced adversity at Southwest and dealing with all the adversity this year (a tornado heavily damaged a portion of the William Carey campus in January), I was really able to look past the hard times and keep pushing to make sure we got to where we had to be as a program.”

Smith said “To be going to the World Series is something we all dream about as a kid and we (the players) didn’t do it just for us. We did it for our school and all the people affected by the tornado. We took a tragedy and used it as motivation.”

Looking back on his time with the Bears, Smith said, “Southwest is where it all started for me. I think I had eight innings pitching my senior year (in high school). I played shortstop and just never really pitched, so for (Southwest head) Coach (Ken) Jackson to turn me into a winning pitcher in just a few months really shows that the program they are running is effective.”

Playing for the Bears, Spiers said, got him to this point by helping him “experience playing against good competition and working hard on and off the field.”

Spiers said making it to the World Series is “something we worked hard for all year long. It’s really big for our community and school and we couldn’t (have done it) without the good Lord above.”

Tristan Moore Embracing Professional Basketball Opportunity In Mexico
Release Date: 5/22/2017
Northwest Mississippi Community College

CALERA, ZACATECAS, MEXICO – While Tristan Moore may be worlds away from the NBA, the former Northwest Mississippi Community College standout is still right at home on the hardwood.

Moore, a Senatobia native, is now making the most of the latest stop on his hoops journey in Mexico, suiting up for Zanahorias de Calera in the inaugural season of LEDT (Liga de Desarollo de Talentos), a basketball showcase league located in the province of Zacatecas.

"This is a great opportunity to start my professional career," Moore said. "I've spoken with older players and they have told me that I'm in a great situation. Some players have started their careers in bad situations, such as not having transportation, living in dangerous areas and not getting the full amount of money from their contracts, but I have received everything that I've been promised and so much more."

Moore played two seasons with the Rangers from 2012-14 and played in 48 career games, averaging 9.4 points, 2.9 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game. His sophomore season is where he did most of his damage, however, finishing with 13.2 points, 3.9 assists and 3.0 rebounds per game, earning first team all-conference, NJCAA All-Region 23 and MACJC All-Star selections.

From Northwest, Moore signed with Mississippi College and averaged 12.5 points per game in two seasons with the Choctaws. He was named to the National Christian College Athletic Association All-Mideast Region Team his junior season.

Moore graduated from MC in 2016 with a degree in kinesiology and had plans to apply for graduate school in the College of Business at Ole Miss, with the hopes of someday becoming an athletic director.

However, the sport of basketball wasn't quite finished with Moore.

"I got a call from an agent about my highlight film," Moore recalled. "He told me about a potential opportunity with a semi-pro team in Jackson. I got the opportunity to train in Vicksburg with (former D-League player) Michael Ammons and (Harlem Globetrotter) Chris Hype. I spent two months training and traveling back and forth between Vicksburg and Senatobia."

Moore earned a spot with the American Basketball Association's Jackson Showboats before the start of the season in October and played in roughly 15-16 games, typically playing two per weekend. When the ABA season ended in February, another opportunity came knocking.

"Another agent (Nathan Broussard) saw me training and told me that I was better than the ABA level," Moore said. "He made a few calls about playing in Mexico in a new startup league."

It would be a quick turnaround for Moore, who left for Mexico on March 16, less than two weeks after receiving his passport. He was then drafted by Zanahorias de Calera (translated in English to 'Calera Carrots') in one of the two allotted roster spots for international players.

So far, Moore has played in every contest for Calera and scored his season-high of 42 points in a win against Mineros de Zacatecas. Calera is also 11-3 on the season and currently sits atop the league standings, slightly under the halfway mark of the league's 30-game regular season schedule.

Being in another country isn't the only difference Moore has experienced. In his words, the game is more physical in his league with things such as "a little tap on the wrist" not being regarded as fouls.

In addition to the added physicality, the overall strategy of the game differs from its American counterpart.

"Here they rely more on passing," Moore said. "They move without the ball as opposed to isolation basketball in America. Part of that could be that the ball handlers here aren't as prolific as in the U.S."

While he's currently enjoying his experience in Mexico, Moore is constantly looking ahead to his future and still has hopes of following through with his plans to attend graduate school.

For now, though, even more opportunities are opening for him in the sport he loves.

"My agent is working on a deal in Finland or in Austria," Moore said. "As it stands right now, those are my options, but when I find the time while pursuing my basketball career, I still want to follow through with my academic goal."

Cartee Signs With Lady Bears
Release Date: 5/23/2017
Southwest Mississippi Community College

Fans of Parklane Academy basketball standout Tootie Carter will not have to travel far to see her continue her playing career as the 6’ forward has signed a scholarship to play for the Lady Bears next season.

As a senior, Carter averaged a double-double, with 18 points and 10 rebounds per contest, helping Coach Drew Smith’s Lady Pioneers compile a 21-7 regular-season record and a fourth-place finish in MAIS AAA Division 1. The team advanced to the MAIS Overall Tournament, for only the second time in 20 years, and ended with an overall mark of 27-9. Carter was selected the District 2 4A Most Valuable Player and also named an MAIS All-Star.

Smith said Carter is “a very versatile player. We (Parklane) used her predominantly as a post player and that is what she played most of her career. However, as we progressed later into the (2016-17) season, we had to get more creative to get her open shots. We then moved her away from the basket more often where she could create off-the-dribble and shoot from the outside.”

“Tootie is very capable of scoring in the post, scoring off the dribble and shooting the three-point shot,” Smith continued. “She is a tough matchup for most players because of that versatility. She is also a great rebounder. (Her) presence on the floor was invaluable to our team. Regardless if she was scoring, she demanded a lot of attention from our opponents. This, in turn, opened up other scoring opportunities for her teammates. She is very strong-willed and determined. We will certainly miss her on and off the floor next season.”

Smith said Southwest fans should expect to see Carter “score in multiple ways. They should also expect to see a very physical and tough player who doesn’t mind contact in the post or anywhere on the court. Fans who get to know her will admire her fun-loving personality. She is a comedian by nature and I believe everyone will love her sense of humor. Our loss is certainly Southwest’s gain.”

Southwest head coach Brent Harris said Carter stood out to him and assistant Britta Stephens because of her ability to play more than one position. “She can play inside (and) she can play on the perimeter,” Harris said, “and I don’t think that’s going to be very difficult for her (at Southwest).”

“We think she can shoot the ball from the perimeter,” Harris went on, “and I think we can give her that opportunity a little more here at Southwest. I think that’s something she’s going to bring to the table.”

As did Smith, Harris said Carter has “a great personality.” Concluding his comments, Harris said, “She’s obviously a local product and we like that. I think she’s got a chance to really do some big things here.”

Gulf Coast 18 Holes Away From Title
Release Date: 5/25/2017
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College

No. 6 Mississippi Gulf Coast remains on top of the team and individual leaderboards again Thursday after the third round of the NJCAA Division II Golf Tournament in Arizona.

The Bulldogs’ lead narrowed to two shots, but their 12-over has them in front of host Mesa at Longbow Golf Club after 54 holes. They have a seven-stroke lead over second-ranked Murray State heading into Friday’s final round.

“We played OK. It was tough conditions again but we battled,” Gulf Coast coach Tommy Snell said. “Those other two teams were making a move on us. Not many people caught too many shots on us. Mesa was the only one. You expect them to make a run at you at home.”

Colin Troxler (So., Hahnville/Luling, La.) shot a 2-under 69 for the second straight day to finish at 5-under. He leads Gulf Coast’s Jackson Wedgeworth (Fr., West Jones/Soso) by three shots. Wedgeworth is second, with only one other golfer under par. Southeast’s Noah Hoffman is 1-under.

“I hit it good, but I just left myself in great places to get up and down,” Troxler said. “I left myself short of trouble, and I made a lot of par putts. That really helped.”

Wedgeworth, the first-round leader, bogeyed four of his first five holes Thursday. He clawed his way back into contention by focusing on something besides himself.

“I knew I had the team to play for,” he said. “I could have easily laid down right there if I was just playing for myself, but I knew I had four other guys who were depending on me. I was finally able to get some putts to go in.”

He got one shot back on eight, then started a run of three birdies in four holes on 14. He had a chance to get in red numbers on the final hole.

“It just goes to show you what kind of player he is and how much guts he has,” Snell said. “He fought back to even part. That was huge for us. That just shows a lot of fortitude.”

Wyatt Adkison (So., East Central/Hurley) is tied for 26th at 11-over. Jonathon Newman (So., North Pike/Summit) was 9-over and is tied for 29th. Logan Leary (Fr., Gonzales/Dutchtown, La.) shot his third straight 76 and is tied for 44th.

Gulf Coast will be in the final groups to tee off Friday. The Bulldogs have finished in the top four the last three years, but have never won the national title.

There’s no secret to what will have to happen to make that happen.

“Just keep doing the same things we’re doing: taking good lines into the greens, picking good targets and clubs off the tee, hit it to the right areas and make some putts,” Snell said. “That’s what it’s going to boil down to, who makes some putts.”

East Mississippi Men’s Rodeo Team Qualifies For College National Finals Rodeo In Wyoming
Release Date: 5/2/2017
East Mississippi Community College

SCOOBA – The East Mississippi Community College men’s rodeo team has qualified for next month’s College National Finals Rodeo for the first time in program history after finishing the regular season as reserve champions of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association’s Ozark Region. The 2017 CNFR will take place June 11-17 at the Casper Events Center in Casper, Wyoming.

Coach Morgan Goodrich’s EMCC Lions qualified for their first-ever CNFR team appearance by finishing as runners-up of the NIRA’s Ozark Region with 4,710 cumulative team points earned during 10 regional events split between the fall and spring campaigns. Sitting behind only Missouri Valley College (7,200 points) within the regional men’s standings, EMCC’s second-place team effort during this past weekend’s season-ending, UA Cossatot-hosted Colts College Rodeo held in Texarkana, Arkansas lifted the Lions past Southern Arkansas University (4,505 points) for the second and final CNFR men’s team spot from the Ozark Region.

While preparing for the school’s first-ever team appearance at college rodeo’s national championship, East Mississippi Community College was previously represented by individual qualifiers at the College National Finals Rodeo during each of the past six years since the program’s inception in 2010. A year ago in Wyoming while boasting the CNFR’s all-around champion cowboy and tie-down roping national champion Marcus Theriot, the Lions claimed a school-best, fifth-place national finish by collecting 510 team points.

Theriot will again look to headline EMCC’s rodeo squad at nationals by having repeated as the Ozark Region’s all-around men’s champion with 2,200 total points earned during the 2016-17 rodeo season. Along with edging out Missouri Valley’s Dalton Kingery by 45 points for the region’s all-around title, the Poplarville native also claimed the Ozark Region’s tie-down roping (730 points) and team roping header (815) championships for the second straight year. Theriot also repeated as the region’s reserve champion in steer wrestling (655 points).

Also rated among the Ozark Region’s top 10 all-around cowboys this year, EMCC’s Tristan Martin ranks eighth regionally with 730 total points. The McNeese State University transfer from Sulphur, Louisiana most recently won the steer wrestling event this past weekend at UA Cossatot and currently stands sixth in the event within the region. Martin also ranks fifth regionally in tie-down roping.

In team roping, East Mississippi’s Jace Harris, of Vilonia, Arkansas, is the region’s top heeler with 680 points after partnering with Southern Arkansas’ Cooper Lee to win the UA Cossatot title. Fellow EMCC team roping heeler Ethan Wheeler (Pisgah, AL) follows close behind in third place regionally with 480 points.

Also representing EMCC during this year’s CNFR will be North Pontotoc High School product Cooper Christensen, who will compete in steer wrestling along with teammates Theriot and Martin.

Last season marked the second straight year that East Mississippi had three competitors participate in the College National Finals Rodeo. A year ago en route to the Lions’ No. 5 national men’s finish, Theriot was joined by saddle bronc rider Kody Rinehart. EMCC was also represented by 2015-16 Ozark Region all-around women’s champion Katelyn Nicholson.

Annually showcasing more than 400 collegiate cowboys and cowgirls from four-year universities and two-year junior colleges located throughout the country, the College National Finals Rodeo is where the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) annually crowns individual event champions in saddle bronc riding, bareback riding, calf roping, steer wrestling, bull riding, team roping, barrel racing, breakaway roping, and goat tying. The top three student-athletes in each event and the top two men’s and women’s teams from each of the NIRA’s 11 regions annually qualify for the CNFR.

ICC’s Blake Signs With Belhaven
Release Date: 5/4/2017
Itawamba Community College

FULTON, MS – Itawamba Community College Men’s Soccer standout Thomas Blake has signed a National Letter of Intent to continue his career at Belhaven University.

“I’m excited to play at Belhaven,” said Blake. “They have a solid team and I’m excited to play two more years of soccer.”

The Fulton native began his soccer career later than most as his high school didn’t add soccer until 2012. However, Blake worked hard at his position and earned a scholarship from ICC Head Coach Mike Sullivan.

“I’m thankful for my high school coaches and Coach Sullivan for giving me the opportunity to play at ICC,” said Blake. “I had a great time here (ICC), and made a lot of friends that I’m going to miss.”

Blake played in nine game as a freshmen at ICC and earned two starts, but his hard work during the offseason earned the starting keeper job for his sophomore season where he started 13 of 14 games.

Last season, Blake made 57 saves and helped the Indians earn a big shutout victory over Jones County Junior College.

“He’s been a great keeper for us for two years,” said Sullivan. “He’s fearless in the goal and anybody who’s competing with him for the position at Belhaven is going to have their hands full.”

Blake is the eighth Indians to sign with Belhaven since 2015 and will join former teammate Sabi Malli in Jackson next season.

“I’m really excited for Thomas,” said Sullivan. “Belhaven’s a great school that we’ve had several guys go to and have success and I’m excited that Thomas gets to continue his career there because he’s a tireless worker that’s going to fit that team really well.”

Blake finished his career at ICC with 81 total saves over 23 games.

Kennedy Mount, a midfielder for the Southwest Lady Bears soccer team, has signed a scholarship to continue her collegiate career with Coach Josue Sabillon and the Belhaven University Lady Blazers.

A graduate of D’ Iberville High School, Mount was a two-year starter for the Lady Bears. She said she chose to go with the Lady Blazers because she “loved the atmosphere of the school as a whole.

Lady Bears head coach Bee Casey said Mount’s “passion for soccer and hard work helped Southwest tremendously. During her time at Southwest she filled her teammates and campus with pride and continuous leadership. I am proud of Kennedy’s work ethic and look forward to her success at Belhaven.”

Werdann, Keehn, Mathis Named All-Region
Release Date: 5/25/2017
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College

PERKINSTON — Mississippi Gulf Coast landed three softball players on the All-Region 23 Team: catcher Izzy Werdann, pitcher Nora Keehn and utility player Lexie Mathis.

The Lady Bulldogs finished 40-14 for their third straight 40-win campaign. They were ranked seventh in the final regular-season NJCAA poll.

Werdann, a sophomore from Pensacola, Fla., led Gulf Coast with 13 home runs, 47 RBI and a .513 on-base percentage. She batted .384.

“She was solid behind the plate, and her hitting just carried us,” Gulf Coast coach Kenneth Long said. “The walk-off home runs, the key base hits she got all year. She got better as the season went on, and that’s what good players do.”

Keehn, a sophomore right-hander from Thibodaux, La., finished 21-6 and had two saves. She posted a 1.99 ERA with 123 strikeouts to just 24 walks. Keehn has signed with the University of West Alabama.

“Nora had a very good year for us, evidenced by low earned run average,” Long said. “She kept us in just about every game. I thought she did a really good job for us this year.”

Mathis, a sophomore from Mobile, Ala., batted .384 with five home runs and 30 RBI. She had a .497 on-base percentage, second-best on the team. Mathis has signed with the University of Mobile.

“She had a great year last and was having a really good year this year when the injury happened to her,” Long said. “She fought to get back to us as fast as she could, but I don’t think she ever got back to 100 percent. That shows the kind of player she is to come back like that.”

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College

PERKINSTON — Former Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College men’s tennis player Skyler Flowers was killed Saturday in a car accident in Holmes County, Miss.

“He was a standup guy,” Gulf Coast coach Gary Bourgeois said. “He played his sophomore year with a torn rotator cuff. He would not let that injury stand in the way of him playing and competing. He loved his team and his teammates. He was the consummate team player. Even though he was going to have surgery, he went to nationals to support them.”

Flowers was killed driving back to Starkville from teaching at a tennis center in New Albany. Bourgeois said he’d made a full recovery from his surgery and was playing his best tennis, and he was planning to play at Belhaven next year.

Flowers, who went to Ocean Springs High School, played No. 1 singles and doubles at Perkinston during the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons, helping the Bulldogs to a 26-2 MACJC record. The 2014-15 team went undefeated in the conference during the regular season.

He was named Academic All-MACJC as a sophomore, an award for students with a GPA between 3.25-379.

At Ocean Springs, he won three straight Class 6A boys singles titles, and helped the Greyhounds win their fourth consecutive team title as a senior.

Funeral arrangements are incomplete. They are being handled by Oliver Funeral Home in Winona.
