Fillies Wrap Up Season at National Tournament


 

 

The Fillies stepped on the National playing field representing Panola College in a positive way.
 
Tuesday morning the Fillies would match up against Northwest Florida. Early execution by the Raiders would give Panola a 5-0 deficit. The score wouldn’t last as Maryia Adashchyk would knock down a three from deep followed by a lay up by Daria Eremeeva.
 
The Fillies would get back to back stops in the second quarter, but couldn’t seem to click offensively. A poor shooting period led Panola onto break down 25-33.
 
By the fourth quarter the Fillies would see the lead balloon to as many as 11. Panola wouldn’t give up though. A three pointer by Adashchyk and a coupe of steals got the Fillies back working 6. That would be as close as the Fillies got for the remaining of the period!
 
Adashchyk led the Fillies with 16 point. Patience Okpe also scored in double digits with 10.

KOSOVO WAR VETERANS REMEMBERED


 

 

19 years ago, on March 24, 1999 NATO launched an air campaign called Operation Allied Force to halt the humanitarian devastation that was then unfolding in the European country of Kosovo.  The decision to intervene followed more than a year of fighting within the province and the failure of international efforts to resolve the conflict by diplomatic means.
 
NATO announced the suspension of the air campaign on June 10, 1999 once it had concluded a military technical agreement with the federal republic of Yugoslavia.
 
NATO casualties were light and the alliance suffered no fatalities as a result of
 
combat operations.
 
VFW Post 8904 and the Auxiliary will conduct a wreath laying ceremony in honor of those who served in the Kosovo War at the Veteran’s Memorial on the grounds of the Historic Courthouse in Center on Friday, March 23rd at 10:00 a.m.  As always the public is invited to honor their fellow Americans.

Center Garden Club Harbinger of Spring


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This week Center Garden Club recognizes an early harbinger of spring, the spectacular pastel pink-white tulip tree (a member of the Magnolia family)which has been in full bloom since mid-February on the front lawn of 210 Field Street, the lovely home of Shirley and Jimmy Andrews.  According to Mr. Andrews, the tree is more than 29 years old as it was in place when they purchased the house in 1989.  Those  who saw this tree in its prime, laden with  delicate blossoms,  certainly experienced a wonder of nature!

Panola College Rodeo Team Update


 

 

Panola College Rodeo team regained its lead in the Southern Region standings February 23-24 in Robstown, TX. The Texas A&M- Kingsville hosted rodeo proved to be very important for a lot of individuals fighting for their shot at qualifying for the CNFR. The following individuals helped their team to regain its lead:
 
Logan Cook started things off right in the Calf Roping with a 8.8 seconds, topping the rest of the field by three tenths of a second. Coach Collins said “That was an amazing run and he made it look so effortless, just awesome to see him do that”. The win helped Cook to move to 2nd place in the standings and help insure himself a qualification to the CNFR. Logan didn’t stop there; he also placed in the Team Roping along with his partner Colton Johnson. The pair teamed up and completed their run in 7.5 seconds, well enough time for a 6th place finish. The most important part of that run was it moves both Logan and Colton in the top ten in the region, and with three rodeo’s left to go leaves plenty of time to qualify for their first CNFR in the Team Roping.
 
Travis Chapman won 2nd place in the Bareback Riding. Travis drew a horse he knew really well and was able to make an excellent spur ride and score 76 points. He is the number 2 man in the region and well within striking distance of being the number one man. Coach Collins says” Travis is very talented young man with a lot of grit and try. He will be a huge hitter for us at the CNFR. I do expect Travis to win the region and be a contender for the National Championship in Casper.”
 
Two Bull Riders came out with valuable points at Robstown. Koby Radley and Ross Freeman, both freshman, did an amazing job of just riding there bulls. Ross scored a 78 point ride for a 3rd place finish while Koby scored 73 for a 6th place finish. The two are both seated in the top ten, Koby is in 2nd place and Ross at 7th.  Koby has been in the lead a good part of the season and is right on the heels of the number one man, Ross just cracked into the top ten and with a strong finish, both will be expecting their first CNFR qualification. Collins said “Ross and Koby are not only great college rodeo athletes, but compete and win on the pro rodeo circuit as well. These two young men are very mentally mature athletes with huge goals and expectations of themselves.  They are a great asset to this team and I expect them to achieve all they are set out to do. Watch for these young men, you will be hearing a lot about them.”
 
Logan Cook also competes in the Saddle Bronco Riding, although this was an off weekend and he did not receive points in that event, he remains way out in front of the men’s All-Around race. In rodeo an All-Around hand is a cowboy that competes in two or more events, Logan does three. Logan is number 2 in Calf Roping, number 2 in Saddle Bronco, and number 7 in the Team Roping, and number one in the All-Around. Coach says” I believe Logan has the talent and drive to win National Titles in more than one event, he has really matured mentally in the last year. His work ethic and discipline has caught another gear. That’s exciting to watch an athlete compete in that manner. I think it’s going to be a great CNFR for him and us as well.”
 
The Rodeo Team will travel to Bryan for the 8th rodeo of the 10 in the Southern Region on March 16-17.

Panola art students win scholarships


 

 

Two Panola College art students were among the winners at the University of Texas at Tyler Art Symposium on Friday, Feb. 23. Sheli Caserta of Beckville and Morgan Ray of Center won scholarships in the juried art exhibit, which showcases student art from regional colleges and universities.
 
Caserta’s ceramic bust sculpture earned her recognition and the scholarship, while Ray’s winning entry was an acrylic painting of a longhorn.
 
“Panola art students were so excited to participate in this year’s Art Symposium,” said Amanda Clements, Panola College art professor. “Three students entered three artworks each for a total of nine works submitted for the scholarship competition.”
 
The day’s events included the juried exhibition, a tour of the UT Tyler Art complex, participation in discussions in the graduates’ gallery, and an opportunity to view and discuss art work from other competing colleges.
 
“One of the things the students enjoyed most was the Raku demonstration,” Clements said. “Raku is an ancient traditional Japanese pottery firing technique. This was a great experience for our art students.”
 
 
 
 
Sheli Caserta won a scholarship for her ceramic sculpture.
