Booneville, Miss. – Northeast Mississippi Community College’s baseball program is always on the watch for elite talent. An upcoming event will aid in that cause and give local prep athletes a chance to exhibit their abilities before the upcoming spring season begins.

A full scrimmage is slated to follow the workout session. Each pitcher in attendance has the opportunity to throw to a maximum of four batters during the practice game.

Each participant is expected to bring their own equipment, which includes but is not limited to athletic apparel, cleats, a glove, a bat and a helmet. Baseballs will be provided at the stadium.

Pre-registration is available through Tuesday, September 16 at a cost of $40. After that date, the cost to register increases to $60 and runs through the day of the showcase.

All-Metro Selection Hughes Set To Make Impact With Northeast
Release Date: 8/15/2014
Northeast Mississippi Community College

Booneville, Miss. - Alivia Hughes, who was one of the Magnolia State’s most highly decorated athletes on the court last season, is prepared to help the Northeast Mississippi Community College women’s basketball team in any manner that she possibly can.

Hughes became the newest member of the Lady Tigers 2014-15 signing class after she inked her National Letter of Intent (NLI) with the ten-time Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) state championship program.

“From a talent perspective, she’s one of the top guards in the state,” said Northeast headman Brian Alexander. “She’s extremely quick with great ball skills. She is just a tremendous mentally tough individual and we’re happy she’s here with us.

“The character of this specific kid is tremendous. She’s going to be really good here and is very committed to hanging another championship banner in Bonner Arnold Coliseum.”

Hughes recorded a solid senior season at Clinton High School while under the tutelage of head coach Felicia Burton and assistant Kunshinge Sorrell Howard, who led the Lady Tigers to the 1986 National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) title game and was a 2011 inductee into the MACJC Hall of Fame.

“It feels amazing because I’m about to play with a great team,” Hughes said. “Coach Alexander is a great coach so I know he’s going to amazing things with us. I want to win a championship this year and help my teammates out every game.”

The 5-6 guard was named as one of 40 seniors to watch in the state during the 2013-14 campaign by The Clarion-Ledger. She lived up to the hype by guiding the Lady Arrows to an incredible 24-4 record in her final season at the prep level.

Hughes and fellow Northeast signee Harper Newell both averaged three steals per game to direct a stingy Clinton defense that held its initial eight opponents to only 43 points each contest.

The Lady Arrows outscored their Mississippi High School Activities Association (MHSAA) Division 4, Class 6A rivals by an average of 65-43 to claim the regular season and tournament region crowns.

Hughes had a phenomenal performance during Clinton’s MHSAA Class 6A postseason opener against Starkville High School. She scored a game-high 22 points on 8 of 14 shooting with five steals and four rebounds in a 76-52 victory by the Lady Arrows.

She appeared in each of Clinton’s 28 games as a senior and finished tied Newell with a team-best 12.6 points per game. Hughes also had 3.1 assists and 2.7 rebounds each outing.

For her leadership and hard work throughout the 2014 campaign with the Lady Arrows, Hughes was named to The Clarion-Ledger’s prestigious All-Metro team.

Hughes was a part of the varsity squad at Clinton for four seasons. During her outstanding career, she averaged 13.2 points, 2.1 rebounds, 1.7 steals and 1.5 assists per contest.

Her teams qualified for the MHSAA Class 6A playoffs three times and won division titles twice. The Lady Arrows held a solid 8-4 mark in postseason matchups with Hughes on their roster.

Hughes scored a personal best 30 points as a sophomore in a loss to North Pontotoc High School and tallied the only double-double of her career one year later with 18 points and 10 boards in a victory versus Terry High School.

She shot 33 percent from the floor and 27 percent from three-point range at Clinton with a total of 1,187 points.

No. 10 Bobcats Expect To Field Solid Offensive Line
Release Date: 8/21/2014
Jones County Junior College

ELLISVILLE – The 10th-ranked Jones County Junior College Bobcats only have one returning starter in the offensive line.

But JCJC offensive line coach Chuck Robertson thinks his ‘fat boys’ have a chance to be better than last year’s group, which paved the way for some impressive offensive numbers.

“I think we are a bigger and more athletic group than we had last year, but we have not gelled like that group last year,” he said. “That is going to take just getting out there and playing.”

Anchoring the Bobcat line is that returning starter – center Travis Brogle (6-2, 280) of Bay. Brogle started only four games in 2013 because of injury, but Robertson likes what he brings to the table.

“Travis is, by far, the leader of the line,” said Robertson, who is being helped by student assistant Lane Brady. “You can tell he played last year. He knows all of the calls, knows the pass protections and knows the different things we try to do offensively. He is a small O-lineman, but he’s hard-nosed and enjoys competition.

‘He is one of those kids that is always excited about practice and enjoys playing the game.”

Lining up at left tackle will be Raleigh sophomore JravenTribble (6-5, 295).

“Jraven missed the first couple of game last year, kind of got behind the 8-ball and didn’t really fit into the mix,” Robertson said. “He is a big, athletic kid. He is a few years older than the other guys, so mature-wise, he is a on a different level than an 18 or 19-year-old kid. Once he feels comfortable up front, he will be one of the best offensive linemen to come out of JCJC in a while.

“With his physique and athletic ability, it just puts him head and shoulders above others.”

Taylorsville freshman Doug Lofton (6-4, 325) is at left guard. Lofton played in the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star Game last year and originally signed with Louisiana-Monroe.

“We are real happy to have him here,” Robertson said. “Lofton is a huge asset for us and is making the adjustment to our style of offense. Once he becomes accustomed to the speed of the game, he will be really good. He struggled with the speed of the game at first, but he’s a smart kid and just a good old, country boy from Smith County.

“Once he adjusts and understands all of the calls, he will be fine.

At right guard will Hancock sophomore Devin Smith (6-2, 295). Smith played defensive tackle last year for the Bobcats, but has made a smooth transition to offense.

“I think the offensive line is probably Devin’s natural position,” Robertson said. “Anytime you can move an athlete from the D-line to the O-line, it makes you more athletic up front. That’s the type of kid that can adjust well to things. We only signed two offensive linemen, so moving Devin over helps tremendously. He is a big, athletic kid, who is really aggressive.

“He is a ‘yes, sir’ ‘no, sir’ kind of kid. He never asks ‘Why?’ – he just always does what he is asked to do.”

Gautier sophomore Tyrone Patterson (6-3, 310) is the leader at right tackle. Robertson has been very pleased with his progress.

“Tyrone has really come into his own in the last three weeks,” he said. “He is going to be an outstanding right tackle. He struggled last year with just trying to get the concept of our offense. But with a year under his belt, he has blossomed into an outstanding player.”

Hattiesburg freshman and Pearl River Community College transfer Khadedryck Todd (6-5, 285) will be a reserve tackle.

“We are excited that he is here, but he still has a little bit to go,” Robertson said. “He is a very athletic kid and once he understands how to practice and compete a little more, he will be a huge asset for us.”

Hazlehurst redshirt freshman Joseph Nelson (6-4, 350) will see playing time as a guard.

“Joseph is in the mix to start at guard, but the other two are a bit ahead right now,” he said. “Big Joe came to us last year and sat out, but he went through spring and that puts him ahead of the incoming freshmen.”

Hazlehurst freshman Torian Samuels (6-2, 310) played in the Alabama/Mississippi All-Star Game last year and is in a reserve role along the offensive line.

“Torian works hard, but he has not caught up to the speed of the game yet,” Robertson said. “When he does, he can be really good.”

Another backup lineman who will see action is John Brown (6-1, 300), a freshman from North Forrest. Brown has provided a boost to the Bobcat offensive line in preseason workouts.

“John has been the biggest surprise to me,” Robertson said. “He is a mirror image of Travis. He is a little shorter, but he is athletic, he is strong and he is smart. He asks the right questions in practice. When he becomes comfortable out there, he will be really good. He has been just a huge surprise for us.”

Redshirt offensive linemen this year will be Joey Lofton (6-0, 227) of Stringer and Antonio Jones (5-11, 254) of Bay Springs.

Last year, the Bobcats averaged 463.0 yards per game with 327.5 yards per game through the air and 135.5 yards on the ground.

Robertson thinks the rushing numbers should be improved this season, especially with the addition of freshman running backs Tevin Moore of Stringer, D’Alex Rockingham of Hazlehurst and James Milledge of Petal.

“We should be able to run the ball better than we did last year because not only are we bigger and more physical, but because of the fact we’ve got three outstanding running backs,” he said. “We were a pass-heavy team last year and we used that to set up the run. Hopefully, we can run to set up the throw this year.

“But every year is different and we just have to make adjustments as we go along.”

The Bobcats open the season at 6:30 p.m. on Aug. 28 at Northwest Mississippi. The game will air on www.jcjc.tv.

Northeast Softball Accepts ALS Ice Bucket Challenge
Release Date: 8/20/2014
Northeast Mississippi Community College

Booneville, Miss. - Northeast Mississippi Community College’s softball program took part in a popular sensation that is sweeping its way across the nation to help bring more attention to a dreadful illness.

The Tigers completed the Ice Bucket Challenge to benefit research for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), which is better known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, on Monday afternoon at David Carnell Memorial Field.

The rules of the competition are simple. Each person must have a cooler filled with ice water poured over their heads within 24 hours of obtaining the challenge or make a financial donation to the ALS Association.

Nine players, two coaches and one manager received a frozen bath in the outfield of Northeast’s home stadium. The remainder of the team held the containers and doused those who participated in this worthy cause.

Performing the Ice Bucket Challenge was a sentimental moment for one member of the Tigers’ staff. Northeast assistant coach Jaisa Emerson’s mother, Liza Fox, passed away nearly five years ago following a lengthy battle with ALS.

“I’m kind of emotional,” said Emerson. “It meant a lot to me and I really appreciate it. Raising money and awareness for ALS is all I’m really wanting to do.”

Emerson was grateful that each representative of the Tigers’ ball club embraced the event and willingly performed a role to make it a success.

“It’s just exciting that these girls care this much about me as a coach,” Emerson said. “It shows me how much they actually care about not only softball, but about life in general and supporting others when they’re going through such a hard time.”

Sophomore Haley Christian noted that endeavors like the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge help unite the squad as preparations for the 2015 season get underway in the City of Hospitality.

“It’s really good because we’re focusing on coming together as a team and sticking together,” Christian said. “With us doing these activities early on, it’ll make us closer.”

The ALS Association is the only non-profit organization fighting Lou Gehrig’s Disease on every front. It’s mission includes providing services to assist those with ALS and eventually finding a cure for the ailment.

The institution has accepted over $31 million in contributions this year thanks partially to the Ice Bucket Challenge.

Hard Work Helps Frazier Earn Spot On NEMCC Tennis Team
Release Date: 8/14/2014
Northeast Mississippi Community College

Booneville, Miss. - Beth Ann Frazier has earned a chance to further her playing career at Northeast Mississippi Community College following multiple years of toil and dedication on the tennis court.

Frazier became the newest Lady Tiger after signing her National Letter of Intent (NLI) with the Northeast women’s tennis team.

“We’re happy to have Beth Ann with us next season,” Northeast head coach Ben Shappley said. “We have high expectations for her both in the classroom as well as on the courts.”

Frazier helped Kossuth High School begin their tennis program during her sophomore campaign in 2012. She started each season for coach Ginger Mattox since then.

“I feel like I worked all three years of high school for an opportunity like this,” said Frazier. “I’m really excited to see what it has in store.”

Frazier obtained female Most Valuable Player (MVP) honors for the Aggies after leading her squad to the 2014 Mississippi High School Activities Association (MHSAA) Division 1, Class 3A championship.

She also acquired the MHSAA Division 1-3A girls singles crown after defeating rival Abbey Hollowell of Alcorn Central High School 6-2, 6-3. Frazier proceeded to the title match by besting Booneville High School’s Adrianna Jackson 6-3, 6-3.

Kossuth opened the MHSAA Class 3A postseason with a 5-2 victory over North Pontotoc High School to advance to the quarterfinal round versus Cleveland East Side High School at Corinth’s Crossroads Regional Park.

Frazier had no issues against the Trojans and lost only two games to her opponent Keisha Jackson. She claimed a straight sets decision over Jackson to guide the Aggies to the state semifinals with a 5-2 win.

She extended her success with a 6-1, 6-3 sweep of Hannah Garrison in the MHSAA Class 3A North Half championship contest at South Pontotoc High School. However, Kossuth was not as fortunate and lost in heartbreaking fashion to the Cougars.

Frazier qualified for the MHSAA Class 3A State Tournament as an individual and was ranked as the No. 6 overall seed. She met North Pontotoc’s Katelyn Gordon to begin the event at the Ridgeland Tennis Center on May 1.

She also held an 11-1 record during the 2014 regular season that included a hard fought 6-3, 7-6 triumph over Belmont High School’s Alma Manzano and a 6-0, 6-1 win versus Tishomingo County High School’s Emily Long.

“I feel like I have a lot to bring,” Frazier said. “I have a very good forehand, both flat and low, and I usually have a lot of aces with my serve. I’m just really excited.”

Frazier takes the court in the summer months as well. She and her partner Taylor Heavener recently won the 35th annual Candy Classic Memorial Tournament 18-under girls double event with an 8-0 decision against Brooke McCoy and Meredith Murphy.

She fits perfectly into Northeast’s scholastic squad, which was named a 2014 All-Academic Team by both the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) and the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). Frazier was a member of Kossuth’s honor roll from kindergarten through 12th grade and received a state scholarship from the Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA).

Frazier also collected Kossuth’s English Award as a junior and was a member of the National Honor Society.
