Release Date:4/28/2016
Jones County Junior College

CLARKSDALE – The 2nd-ranked Jones County Junior College Bobcats won the MACJC regular season title here Thursday afternoon at the Eddie C. Smith Sports Complex.

But it was not easy.

The Bobcats rallied from a 5-3 deficit with two outs in the ninth inning and beat Coahoma 7-5 in Game 1. That officially clinched the crown. In Game 2, the Bobcats trailed 12-6 entering the final inning, but scored nine runs to win, 15-12.

JCJC is now 40-4 overall and 23-3 in the MACJC. Coahoma ends the season at 13-32-1 and 7-21. The Bobcats end regular season play with a 3 p.m. doubleheader at Meridian on Monday. Meridian is second in the conference with a 17-7 record. JCJC will host the No. 8 team in the MACJC – a team that has not been determined – on May 6-7 in a best-of-3 playoff series. If the Bobcats win that series, they will host the MACJC Tournament on May 12-14.

Bobcats 7, Tigers 5

Jonathan Parker led off the top of the ninth with a single and was replaced by courtesy runner Josh Keel. Pinch-hitter Marcus Hardy followed with a single and Fred Franklin was hit by a pitch to load the bases.

After a pop out and a strikeout, Mason Irby stepped to the plate and ripped a 3-1 pitch into centerfield to score Keel and pinch-runner Dylan Dover and tie the game at 5-5.

Tanner Huddleston followed with a two-run double to give the Bobcats the lead. Reliever Jay Simpson then struck out the side in the bottom of the ninth to preserve the win.

JCJC had taken a 1-0 lead in the first when Shelton Wallace singled, stole second and third and scored on Irby’s sacrifice fly.

The Bobcats went up 2-0 in the third when Clint Sasser drew a one-out walk, stole second and third and scored on a throwing error.

Coahoma scored three runs in the bottom of the third to take a 3-2 lead.

John Alan Wall followed with a two-run double and Jonathan Parker delivered an RBI single to make it 12-11. After a groundout, Marcus Hardy was intentionally walked to load the bases.

Franklin then cleared the bases with a triple to center and give Jones a 14-12 lead. Irby then doubled to score Franklin.

Reliever Brayden Hodge retired the side in order in the bottom of the seventh to record his first save of the season. Coahoma took a 2-0 lead in the second inning before the Bobcats came back with four runs in the third.

Jonathan Parker walked, Josh Keel reached on an error and Franklin reached on a bunt single to load the bases. Wallace followed with a two-run single and Irby delivered a sacrifice fly. Wallace would later score on a wild pitch.

Coahoma then had a nine-run, bottom of the third to take an 11-4 lead. The Tigers made it 12-4 in the fifth.

JCJC cut the lead to 12-6 in the sixth when Hoard reached on an error and Wall walked. Hoard would score on a passed ball and Chris Richardson’s double scored Wall.

Release Date: 4/27/2016
Northwest Mississippi Community College

SENATOBIA – Sophomore forward D.J. Flippin of Northwest Mississippi Community College has signed a national letter of intent to play for the University of Mount Olive Trojans his final two seasons.

"I'm excited to continue my career at the next level," Flippin said. "I'm happy to be closer to home so my family can make it to more games. I've had a good relationship with the staff since my junior year of high school, so it's definitely a good fit. We have a whole new team coming in and they're looking for experience, which I feel like I have."

Flippin will be playing a short 69 miles from Mount Olive to his hometown of Holly Springs, N.C.

The 6-foot-6, 205-pound forward transferred to Northwest for his sophomore season after averaging 11.3 points and 6.1 rebounds-per-game at the State College of Florida where he was named First Team All-Suncoast Conference. He saw action in 18 games for the Rangers this season, averaging 2.2 points and 2.1 rebounds while helping Northwest to a 17-9 record and postseason berth.

Flippin is the first Ranger from this year's class to sign and several more are expected in the coming weeks.

MGCCC’s Courtney White Signs With Point University
Release Date: 4/28/2016
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College

PERKINSTON – Mississippi Gulf Coast’s Courtney White has signed a women’s basketball scholarship to continue her career at Point University.

The 6-foot post player from Harrison Central averaged 8.4 points and 6.1 rebounds as a Lady Bulldogs sophomore. She shot better than 46 percent from the field.

“It’s been an excellent experience. I really grew here,” White said. “My leadership skills have gotten much better, and I want to thank everybody at Gulf Coast for the opportunities I got while I was here.”

White missed the 2014-15 season with a knee injury, but played in 21 games as a freshman the year before. She averaged 3.6 points per game and nearly two rebounds a game.

“I have seen her mature,” Gulf Coast coach Jason Conner said. “She’s a straight-A student, very goal oriented and driven. That comes from her family. I’ve seen her mature with her relationships and how she does with others.”

Point University, located in West Point, Ga., is a member of NAIA Division II and plays in the National Christian College Athletic Association. The Skyhawks won 23 games last year, with coach Tory Wooley named NCCAA South Region Coach of the Year.

“Point University reminded me a lot of here,” White said. “When I walked through the door I was welcomed with open arms. The coach there is amazing.”

Conner sees her going to Point University getting better on the court and in the classroom.

“Courtney is a thinking basketball player,” he said. “It’s going to be a good fit, and she has the potential to get numbers. She’s going to have a successful career there and get a four-year degree, and I wouldn’t put it past her to get her master’s and go on to get her doctorate.”

No. 3 Gulf Coast Faces Tough Task To Repeat
Release Date: 4/28/2016
Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College

The challenges facing the No. 3 Mississippi Gulf Coast in this weekend’s MACJC Tournament are formidable.

The Lady Bulldogs (43-3) will try to repeat as state champions in a field containing three other teams in the top 10 of the NJCAA Division II Softball Rankings. They open play Friday in Ellisville against No. 7 Itawamba (39-8) in the double-elimination tournament.

“You’ve got No. 3, 5, 7 and 10 in the same tournament. I doubt that’s ever been done before,” Gulf Coast coach Kenneth Long said. “It’s going to be really, really tough, but I like our demeanor, I like our team and I think we’ve got a great shot at doing well in this tournament.”

No. 5 Jones (39-6) plays No. 10 East Central (42-7) in the other game Friday. The top three teams advance to the Region 23 Tournament, which will include an even higher ranked opponent. It will be hosted by No. 1 LSU-Eunice on May 5-7.

Gulf Coast went 3-1 against the other two teams in the tournament, including a split at Jones and a sweep at East Central.

The Lady Bulldogs suffered one of their few losses of the season to Itawamba, splitting a pair of 1-0 games in Perkinston early in the MACJC schedule. Kaitlin Lee (21-1) took her only loss of the year despite tossing a three-hitter.

Pitching is Gulf Coast’s strong suit, with the staff sporting the nation’s only sub-1.00 ERA. Lee leads NJCAA Division with a 0.51 ERA, and Nora Keehn has a 0.98 mark.

Lee is part of a seasoned sophomore class that also won the Region 23 crown last year. They’ll be accustomed to the atmosphere at Jones County.

“It helps in some ways because you’re playing in front of much bigger crowds,” Long said. “In that regard, it helps. Last year, our freshmen were hungry and they were just relentless. They wanted that championship, and I think that makes a difference, too.”

The freshman class includes Keehn and shortstop Lexie Mathis, who leads Gulf Coast with a .458 batting average, 15 home runs and 58 RBI.

“I think this year’s freshman group blended in with this group of sophomores,” Long said. “I’ve had people tell me that our team is really mature and handles things well. I think this freshmen group will help push us in that direction and give us some stability.”


Schedule (with tournament seeds)
Friday
Game 1: No 2 Gulf Coast vs. No. 3 Itawamba, 4 p.m.
Game 2: No.1 Jones vs. No. 4 East Central, 6 p.m.

We can’t wait to begin working with our returning players and our new recruits.”
