Northeast Mississippi Community College

Booneville, Miss. – The Northeast Mississippi Community College baseball program is prepared to pass its outstanding knowledge and winning ways onto the next group of future Tigers.

Northeast has organized its annual youth summer camp for May 27-29 at Harold T. White Field.

The three-day event is open to any student in the first-through-sixth grades. Several experienced area coaches and players will aid incoming Tigers head coach Richy Harrelson in providing instruction during the camp.

Members of 2015 Northeast squad are scheduled to be in attendance as well as new additions for the 2016 team to help direct the different drills and tasks.

Athletes that are present will attempt to grasp the fundamentals of the sport in order to develop proper playing habits. Harrelson and his staff also try to teach the mental aspect of the game through sportsmanship, leadership and citizenship.

Boys will also have time to work on hitting, defense, pitching, base running and other essential techniques during a fun and relaxing environment in the City of Hospitality.

Individual guidance is given to help campers correct any faults or to perfect the skills that he is developing through consistent organized practice.

Northeast's baseball camp begins promptly at 9 a.m. each morning and concludes at noon with a rest break set for approximately halfway through each meeting. Every camper will be under constant supervision at all times.

Each participant is expected to bring their own gear, which includes but is not limited to athletic apparel, cleats, a uniform, batting gloves, catching gear, a glove and a bat.

Campers are expected to comply with the rules and must follow instructions given by any advisor. A violation or abuse of camp policy will result in an immediate dismissal without any refund.

Registration is available at a cost of $65 for the entire session. The tuition includes refreshments, a camp t-shirt and accident insurance.

The Tigers boast one of the most successful units in the Magnolia State since the turn of the century. Northeast has qualified for the postseason nine times in that span and is one year removed from hosting the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) State Tournament.

Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College

SCOTTSBORO, Ala. – Mississippi Gulf Coast’s Phillip Hickam and Grant Motter finished tied for second in the NJCAA Division II Golf Tournament, which wrapped up Friday at Goose Pond Colony’s Lake Course.

The duo powered the Bulldogs to their second consecutive third-place finish in the tournament after a strong four days.

“There’s 100 teams that start out the beginning of the year, and to finish third? It’s special,” Gulf Coast coach Tommy Snell said. “I’m proud of ‘em. I’m really proud of ‘em.”

South Mountain, from Phoenix, Ariz., won the team title, and the Cougar’s Connor Klein was medalist at 12-under, with three birdies on the final four holes. Hickam and Motter finished 8-under.

South Mountain shot 30-under, followed by Tyler (Texas) at 15-under. Gulf Coast finished even.

Hickam was trying to finish at the top of the leaderboard for all four rounds. He started the day at 11-under, and made the turn at that same number.

The lead started slipping away when he caught a bad break and had to chip sideways from behind a tree on No. 11, leading to double-bogey. He bogeyed the next hole to drop to 3-over for the day and battled his way back to the clubhouse.

“To lead a tournament wire-to-wire, not many people do that,” Snell said. “He hung in there and got a couple of bad breaks on the back nine. He got up and down out of the bunker on 15 for birdie. He really showed champion heart. I’m really proud of him.”

Motter charged up the leaderboard with a 3-under 69 Friday. He four birdies on the first 10 holes.

“Grant played as well as Grant always plays,” Snell said. “To finish second in this tournament individually is strong.”

Conner Entriken shot 74 to finish 10-over, tied for 52 with five others, including George Kawell. Kawell shot a final-round 78.

Danny De Los Santos finished 20-over in 85th place.
