Panola men go 2-0 defeat 18th ranked Paris, Navarro


 

 
Carthage, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team defeated 18th ranked Paris Junior College this past Wednesday and Navarro College over the weekend. With the two wins, Panola elevates their conference record to 9-5 and overall record to 16-8. “This was two good wins for our ball team. On Wednesday we never gave up and on Saturday we executed really well all game long.” Head Coach Grant McMillan stated.
 
On Wednesday, both Paris and Panola came out scorching hot from the field as Paris took a 47-45 halftime lead. Paris gradually took control in the second half taking a 10 point lead 73-63 with just under 7:00 minutes remaining. Panola chipped away and took a 82-81 lead with 1:15 remaining on a Marlon Taylor three-pointer. A Shandon Goldman dunk with 30 seconds remaining all but sealed the victory as Panola won 87-83.
 
Against Navarro, Panola held a steady lead most of the half taking a 37-34 halftime lead. Navarro tied the ball game up at 41 before eight straight points by TJ Killings helped separate Panola lead midway through the second half. Panola gradually increased the lead the rest of the way to the 87-83 victory.

Tenaha Band News


 

 

Last month, 26 Tenaha Middle School band students and 4 Tenaha High School band students competed for the chance to earn a chair in one of the Region 21 ATSSB All-Region Bands. The Tenaha band students competed against the most talented band students from other 1 A-4A schools in this region. All of Tenaha’s worked hard over several months to prepare audition music for this competition. Each student competed on his or her individual instrument as opposed to competing as an ensemble or group. Those that made the band performed with an “all-star” band that practiced together, and performed a concert in Chapel Hill the same day. The following students earned a chair in the Region 21 East Zone Middle School Band.
 
Manuel Loredo (8th Grade): 10th Chair Trumpet
 
Michael Kellar (8th Grade): 3rd Chair Percussion
 
Sarahi Flores (8th Grade): 2nd Chair Saxophone
 
Alex Tyner (7th Grade): 4th Chair Percussion
 
Jesus Castillero (7th Grade): 4th Chair Tuba

Annie Ozella Jones Memorial Scholarship awarded to Phil Worsham


 

 

 

 

Phil Worsham Superintendent of Joaquin ISD, was presented the Annie Ozella Jones Memorial Scholarship as well as the Billy E. Hibbs Safety Award from Claims Administrative Services while attending the TASA Midwinter Conference. 

 

The Annie Ozella Jones Memorial Scholarships are presented annually to the district and/or college that are committed to having the Lowest Loss Ratio, Most Improved Loss Ratio, and Best 3-Year Loss Ratio. Scholarships are to be awarded to a deserving student of the district or college’s choosing to assist with their continued educational interests. The recipients of the scholarship are encouraged to take that extra step to learn more and then as Ozella would say, “Learn even more.”  When the Claims Administrative Services worker’s compensation program for independent school districts was first being conceptualized, Billy Hibbs and his executive management team recognized that strict adherence to a comprehensive loss control program would benefit everyone.

 

The school district’s personnel would benefit from a safer work environment, and the district would have less absenteeism from injuries. Losses to the insurance company would decrease, creating a situation where the premiums for worker’s compensation would fall. This would make the price of the coverage much more affordable for the district, and ultimately the taxpayers.  For over 26 years, the CAS program has achieved extraordinary success, so much so that it is the benchmark for worker’s compensation models across the state of Texas. Those select Superintendents who operate the very safest districts in this program are recognized annually by this award.

SFA partners with Lone Star College to offer sports business program


 
 
 
 
 
NACOGDOCHES, Texas - Stephen F. Austin State University is partnering with Lone Star College to offer students in the Houston area an opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Business Administration in sports business from SFA without having to relocate. The two institutions will sign an articulation agreement to ensure a smooth transition for Lone Star College students to attend SFA.
 
A signing ceremony commemorating this collaboration is scheduled for 2 p.m. Feb. 15 at the Lone Star College University Center in The Woodlands. The ceremony is open to the public.
 
Students at Lone Star College will be able to enroll in SFA's sports business program beginning in fall 2018. Classes will be offered face-to-face at the Lone Star College University Center in The Woodlands and will be taught by SFA faculty members. Students must complete the required core curriculum before entering the program. Business foundation courses will be offered primarily online through SFA's Rusche College of Business.
 
Dr. Jason Reese, sports business program director and assistant professor at SFA, has been instrumental in establishing this program and is looking forward to the opportunities it will provide SFA and Houston students.
 
"Some Houston-area students have a desire to attend SFA, but for various reasons are unable to move to Nacogdoches," Reese said. "This program will allow them the opportunity to complete the program and earn a bachelor's degree without relocating."
 
Reese added that, through this partnership, Houston students will be able to take classes while benefiting from already-established relationships that SFA has with area sports organizations, including professional sport teams like the Houston Astros, Houston Texans, Houston Rockets and Houston Dynamo.
 
To apply for the program, visit lonestar.edu/university-center/SFA.htm.
 
For more information, contact Reese at (936) 468-1465 or reesejd1@sfasu.edu.

Panola men go 2-0 in Region 14 play this week


 

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Carthage, Texas – The Panola College men’s basketball team defeated Kilgore
College and Bossier Parrish Community College this week. The two wins
elevate Panola’s record to 14-8 and 7-5 in region play. “This team has
begun to mature.” Head Coach Grant McMillan stated. “We are starting to
handle the ups and downs of a ball game the right way, handling adversity.
It showed the previous two games.” He added.
 
On Wednesday night against Kilgore College, Panola found themselves down by
nine at halftime, 21-30. It took all the way to the 15 second mark
remaining in the game for the Ponies to take the lead. Marlon Taylor was
fouled on dunk and made his free throw to take a 57-56 lead. After Kilgore
went 1-1 from the free throw line to tie the game, Jeremy Roscoe was fouled
with 1.1 seconds remaining. Roscoe made one-free throw to seal the victory.
 
Saturday afternoon, Panola traveled to Bossier Parish Community College.
After being down by 14, 26-12, the Ponies went on a monster run to end the
half to tie the game at 30. Panola continued its offensive outburst which
eventually saw them up 64-50 in the second half. The Ponies won 71-59.
 
Panola continues Region 14 play this upcoming Wednesday, February 7th when
the host Paris College. Tip-off is set for 7:00 PM on the campus of Panola
College.
