Casey, Dulin Named Top 200 JUCO Prospects By Perfect Game
Release Date:1/29/2015
Northwest Mississippi Community College

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa – Freshman outfielder Clay Casey and sophomore infielder Dalton Dulin of Northwest Community College are ranked the 41st and 97th best prospects on Perfect Game's Top 200 JUCO prospects list released Wednesday afternoon.

A 6-foot-3, 215-pound product of DeSoto Central, Casey helped lead the Jaguars to the Class 6A state championship series for the first time in school history and the Region 1-6A title last season. He hit .464 with eight doubles, three triples, a state-best 14 home runs, 47 RBIs and 43 runs scored.

Casey was a 2014 Perfect Game Second Team All-American and named a Louisville Slugger preseason All-American. He also earned Perfect Game All-Southeast Region First Team and All-USA team honors in addition to being named a Gatorade Player of the Year finalist.

Casey originally signed with Ole Miss, but decided to come to Northwest and play for one season to improve his draft stock after being selected in the 33rd round of the 2014 MLB Draft by the Washington Nationals.

Dulin (5-10/175) saw action in 38 games at second base last season at Ole Miss, helping the Rebels claim the SEC West championship, Oxford Regional championship and advance to the College World Series for the first time since 1972. He hit .264 with seven RBIs, six runs scored, six stolen bases and fielded .978 in 45 chances.

Dulin lettered five years at Memphis University School under head coach Johnny Beard and was named an UnderArmour and Louisville Slugger All-American. He hit .370 with 12 doubles, four triples, two home runs, 26 RBIs and 38 runs scored as a senior and was named a 2012 Gatorade Player of the Year finalist for Tennessee.

Like Casey, Dulin has also been drafted previously, selected in the 36th round of the 2013 MLB Draft by the Philadelphia Phillies organization.

Northwest has had 16 players drafted in its history, including 10 since 2006. The Rangers had a school-record four players drafted in 2013, including the 46th overall pick in All-American Cody Reed (Horn Lake HS).

Northwest will throw out the first pitch of the 2015 season on Monday, Feb. 9 at Southwest Tennessee.

NORTHEAST SOFTBALL BOASTS ANOTHER TOUGH SCHEDULE IN 2015
Release Date: 1/28/2015
Northeast Mississippi Community College

Booneville, Miss. – The Northeast Mississippi Community College softball team will once again travel into hostile territory during the initial two weeks of its upcoming season.

The Tigers launch a 2015 slate that consists of 43 total contests with road trips to three programs outside the Magnolia State that captured a combined 85 victories just one year ago.

Northeast faces a tough task to start the campaign at 44-game winner Calhoun (Ala.) Community College on Tuesday, February 10. The Tigers then continue their early stretch when they visit Dyersburg State (Tenn.) Community College and Southwest Tennessee Community College over the next seven days.

It is the second consecutive year in which veteran Northeast coach Jody Long has assembled a series of early tests away from the City of Hospitality for a promising squad that needs some experience prior to conference play.

“It’ll give our young team an opportunity to work and come together against some very good competition,” he said. “Hopefully this will pay off for us closer to the end of the season.”

Area softball fans are in for a treat from February 20-21 when the annual TigerFest Tournament invades all three fields at Booneville City Park. The Tigers welcome clubs from as far north as Illinois and Missouri for what is considered one of the top events in the entire country.

“We’ve had some teams here in the past that have played for the junior college national championship,” said Long. “The field is as good as it’s ever been because we’ve got some four-year schools coming as well.”

Archrivals Northeast and Itawamba Community College open the Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) North Division slate for the second straight campaign on Friday, February 27 in Fulton.

The Tigers host their first league doubleheader of the season on Tuesday, March 3 when Mississippi Delta Community College treks to David Carnell Memorial Field.

Northeast has a very busy start to its spring break with four games over a span of two days beginning on Monday, March 9 at East Mississippi Community College. The Tigers journey to Jackson State (Tenn.) Community College the following afternoon.

Other key dates on the calendar include when reigning MACJC North Division runner-up Northwest Mississippi Community College traverses to Northeast on Saturday, March 21 and Itawamba makes the return voyage to Booneville on Friday, March 27.

The Tigers will honor their sophomores during a special ceremony before they meet Jackson State on Tuesday, April 21 in the final matchups of the regular season.

Long expects the conference to be wide open during what should be another exciting campaign on the diamond for Northeast.

“I think our league from top to bottom is going to be very good,” Long said. “It’ll be as competitive as it’s been in the last 20 years.”

A best-of-three series kicks off the MACJC State Playoffs and runs from April 24-25. The MACJC State Tournament will take place at the South Division champion one week later.

The Tigers qualified for the postseason for the 12th time in the 13-year history of the fast-pitch program in 2014. Northeast boasts one of the most tradition-rich squads in the country with seven MACJC North Division titles and one appearance at the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) National Tournament.
