Timpson Bear Update


 

On Saturday, October 21 the Timpson High School Band earned a first division rating at the UIL Region 21 Marching Contest held at Lobo Stadium in Longview.  This year is an “advancing year” for class 2A, so the first division rating enabled the band to advance to the Area round.  The UIL Area C Marching Contest will be this Saturday, October 28 at Homer Bryce Stadium on the campus of Stephen F. Austin State University in Nacogdoches.  The top three bands in class 2A will advance to the UIL State Marching Band Contest at the Alamodome in San Antonio on November 6.  The students are very excited about the opportunity to compete at the next level!

 
 
Some of the judges’ comments from Saturday’s contest are:
“Very nice ensemble sounds.”
“Very nice looking band.  Nice to see all those tubas!”
“I appreciate your approach to phrasing.”
“Sharp turns!”
“Wonderful sounds!  Great low sounds!”
“This was a treat! Thanks for playing some of my favorite marches!”
“This was a fine performance!”
 
The band’s director, Rhonda Daniel, said, “This band has put in many hours rehearsing since August 7 and I couldn’t be more proud of what they’ve accomplished.  We have great parents that understand what it takes to have a successful band, as well as an amazing booster club.  We could not have an award-winning band without them!   Our band has a rich history and it is great to be able to continue traditions and make the people of Timpson proud of their band.”
 
 
The band has six seniors this year:  Blake Johnson, percussion and Drum Major of the THS Band, Kamareious Johnson, percussion, Kristyn Rader, trumpet and head majorette, Tina Sepulavado, flute, Connor Timmons, percussion, and Britney Vargas, clarinet.  The band is directed by Rhonda Daniel and John Dupnik.

Panola Cosmetology students win 'Fit for the Cure' contest


 

 

 

 

 

 
Fourteen Panola College cosmetology students and their instructor used
their creative talents in a unique way to help promote breast cancer
awareness.  They competed against other East Texas teams to decorate a bra
for display in the Longview Mall on Friday, Oct. 20, as part of the ‘Fit
for the Cure,’ an event sponsored by Dillard’s and Wacoal. The Panola
College team came home with first prize: a Michael Kors gift basket.
 
“Winning the gift basket was icing on the cake,” said Bobbie Smith, Panola
College cosmetology instructor, who accompanied the students on the
day-long field trip.
 
Dillard’s department store partnered with Wacoal lingerie manufacturer in a
promotion that donated $2 to the Susan G. Komen organization for every
complimentary bra fitting that day. Another $2 was donated for each bra
sold. Dillard’s set up a competition for teams to decorate bras in creative
ways. The store provided competing teams with a size 40-C bra to decorate
and display that Friday.
 
“My students got online to look for ideas, pitched in all kinds of
decorations, including a lot of costume jewelry. Ashley Crawford was really
the main decorator and Destiney Divine came up with the idea to sew on the
hands,” Smith said.
 
The students worked on the display for several days before the event. “Our
inspector came in one day, and I could tell he was wondering about the
eyeballs hot-glued onto the bra. I started to explain and he said, ‘oh, no
need,’ but I said, ‘oh yes, I do need to explain.’ Once I told him the
project was to promote breast cancer awareness and our theme was ‘You Can’t
Hide from Breast Cancer’, he was so supportive,” Smith added.
 
Smith had Panola College “You Are Born to Sparkle” T-shirts created for the
students to wear that day, and when they arrived at the mall, they promoted
the event by encouraging shoppers to stop by Dillard’s for a free fitting
and to help raise funds for breast cancer awareness.
 
“There were several other entries, but everyone commented on ours. They
loved the bling.” Smith said.
 
Participating in the event meant more than just a chance to win the gift
basket for Smith and two of the students.
 
“I have lost an aunt and a close friend to breast cancer,” Smith said. “Two
of my other aunts have had mastectomies. One of my students just lost her
grandmother to breast cancer, and another has a family member with breast
cancer now.  We were grateful to have a chance to promote breast cancer
awareness.”
 
 
 
 
Panola College Cosmetology students and faculty, from left, Destiney
Divine, Gary; Sydney Chandler, Marshall; Dana Young, Gary; Jasmine Walton,
Carthage; Kelly Davis, Marshall; Jazmine Prosise, Hallsville; Bobbie Smith,
Instructor; and Daniel Marion, Carthage, helped promote the ‘Fit for the
Cure’ event.
 
 
Smith said the Panola College Cosmetology Department plans a November
raffle for the gift basket items as a fund raiser for the department to
assist students with enrichment opportunities.
 
 
 
 
 
 
The “eyes” have it! The Panola College Cosmetology Department’s “You Can’t
Hide from Breast Cancer” entry won first prize in the ‘Fit for the Cure’
decorating contest.

Shelbyville Hispanic Heritage Month


 

On October 12 some of the Shelbyville Spanish Classes put on a living museum for the elementary students of S.W. Carter Elementary.
 
The project was put together in oder to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. Each high school student chose an influencial hispanic figure that they wanted to research and pretend to be.
 
Senior J.T Harrington said, “My favorite thing about this project was getting to dress up and make little kids happy.” The purpose of this project was to introduce the students to Hispanic people that are considered to be some of the influencial and iconic figures.
 
Freshmen Logan Williams said, “I never knew much about Roberto Walker, but now I’ll never forget him.” This was the first time a living museum has been put together for Hispanic Heritage Month at Shelbyville High School. Sophomore Jeremiah Polley also stated that, “We are not the only ones that learned something, because the little kids also learned something.”
 
Ms. Peña and the students would like to thank the faculty and staff of all the campuses that made it possible to put this event together.

Panola College Rodeo Update


 

The Panola College Rodeo Team traveled to Pittsburg TX., on the 19th thru the 21st for the 3rd NIRA Southern Region Rodeo, and wow what a rodeo.
 
The Panola College men’s team had an amazing rodeo and won first for the first time this season. Panola has had a great year and has finished 2nd in the first two rodeos. The win at Pittsburg pushed the men’s team into the number one spot for the Southern Region. Panola College Rodeo Coach, Jeffrey Collins said, “We still have a very long season with a lot of tough programs in it, but we are right where we need to be and quit honestly where we deserve to be. We plan to stay on the same grind we have been on, looking ahead and taking it one rodeo at a time. First we are going to be our best, than we will be first. Sometimes I see programs take their foot of the gas, we will not.”
 
Sophomore, Logan Cook, lead the men’s team to victory with his 3rd win in a row in the Saddlebronc Riding. Logan scored 71 points for the win, and moved into a commanding lead in the region. Logan finished 7th in the nation last year, and is looking like he is not satisfied with that position. Cook was not done there, he and his partner Colton Johnson, knocked out a very good run in the team roping of 6.2 seconds for a 7th place finish. Logan is a rare multi-event man that works both the timed event end of the arena and the rough stock end; he is still in the top ten in the region in the calf roping as well.  Logan is an Alto, TX cowboy who is working on a Ranch and Land Management degree.
 
Panola bull riders are on fire, Boudreaux Campbell and Koby Radley shook things up in their event. Boudreaux won the bull riding with an 82 point score, making this his second rodeo win in a row, and moving him to the number one position in the Southern Region. Koby scored 81 points for a 2nd place win, and moving him to the number 2 position in the region. Both Campbell and Radley are very talented young men; they both compete professionally, and are expected to be a very big threat for national titles. Boudreaux qualified for the NFR this December and is currently ranked 14th in the world, he will be shooting for his first world title while he is still in college. Check your cable television for NFR air times.
 
Travis Chapman and Tyler Johnson did their part for the Ponies by scoring 72 points each in the Bareback Riding. The two young men have placed at every rodeo this year and are a big impact on the team’s victory. The 5th place finish for both men moves them into a top spots in the regional standings. Travis moved to 2nd in the standings while Tyler moved to 4th position. The top 3 individuals in the region in each event move on to the College National Finals, both have their goals set of being the number one man in the region and qualifying for the CNFR.
The Ponies and Fillies will be in action again this weekend at Lake Charles, La. for the 4th rodeo.

Panola College Completes Outdoor Classroom


 

 

The Panola College Foundation continues to plant seeds for the future of the College and will recognize those efforts by hosting a reception at 2 p.m., Monday, Oct. 30. The Panola County Chamber of Commerce and other community members will be on hand and light refreshments will be served.
 
A Panola College Foundation grant funded the Rosemary Labyrinth created in front of the Health and Natural Sciences Building. That project inspired Health and Natural Sciences faculty and students to spearhead the construction of a new outdoor classroom.
 
“The outdoor classroom was made possible by the generous contributions of Dede Shipman Applegate and the Panola College nursing students in support of the health sciences,” said Jessica Pace, Director of Institutional Advancement.
 
The Rosemary Labyrinth is a teaching and learning resource developed with health and wellness in mind. It offers students, faculty, staff, and community members a place for quiet reflection and relaxation, which fosters creativity and healing, according to Dr. Barbara Cordell, retired Dean of Nursing and Health Sciences.
 
“Historically, a labyrinth has been used for healing, meditation, and spiritual connections,” she said. “Today, they are increasingly found for therapeutic use in hospitals, parks, and schools. You are invited to traverse the Labyrinth with mindfulness and attention. There is no right or wrong way to move on the Labyrinth path. You are only asked to be quietly respectful of others, and to supervise children.”
 
Labyrinths derive from ancient designs found in many cultures throughout history as far back as 5000 years. The Panola College Rosemary Labyrinth is a seven-circuit pattern modeled after a labyrinth built in the early 13th century at the Chartres Cathedral in France. The Panola College Rosemary Labyrinth is 75 feet in diameter with a 12-foot center and 900 linear feet
of path, lined with 450 fragrant rosemary plants. Anchoring the center is a large stone, which was donated by Dr. Cordell.
 
The pavilion-like outdoor classroom, open on all four sides, is outfitted with permanent picnic tables and surrounded by green space for use by the health sciences and other academic departments when an outdoor setting is conducive to learning. Occupational Therapy and other Health Sciences classes are already using the outdoor space.
 
Pace praised the collaboration between Health Sciences faculty, students and alumni that resulted in the Labyrinth and outdoor classroom.
 
“It’s so rewarding to realize what can be accomplished when friends of the College work together,” Pace said. “We hope to continue with improvements to the campus green space that will benefit current students, faculty and the community.”
 
 
 
 
 
The Panola College Occupational Therapy Assistant classes work with adults in rehabilitation activities. Instructor Joy Moreland conducts Artisans’ Way, a community-based program with activities to improve mobility, enhance life skills, and encourage social interaction for the participants while providing OTA students with the real-world experience they will need in therapeutic settings.
 
The Panola College Rosemary Labyrinth and Outdoor Classroom provide expanded opportunities for teaching and learning in a natural setting.

SFA students leave their fingerprints on chemical research


 

Two SFA undergraduate students are conducting new research on latent fingerprinting techniques to help determine how different chemical processes reveal fingerprints.
 
Alaina Spurr, a senior biochemistry major from The Colony, is focusing on 1,8-Diazaflouren-9-one, a chemical used to locate fingerprints on porous surfaces by making them glow when lit by a blue-green light, while Russell Stager, a senior chemistry major from McKinney, is studying 1,2-Indanedione, a chemical applied to porous items of evidence that reacts with amino acids in fingerprint residue and produces a fluorescent impression when the reaction is complete.
 
Every SFA biochemistry and chemistry student is required to complete research that will be presented as his or her senior capstone project and at a conference. Spurr and Stager will present their research during the American Chemistry Society’s Southwestern regional meeting Oct. 29 in Lubbock.

Panola College Rodeo


 

Panola College Rodeo team made the long trip to Uvalde worth their time. The 2nd rodeo of the season, held in Uvalde Oct. 5-6, proved to be very exciting.
 
Sophomore, Logan Cook, took the number one spot in the Saddlebronc riding with an amazing ride scoring 78 points. Logan was fresh off the victory from the Panola rodeo, winning two rodeos in a row, and giving himself a superior lead in the region for his event. Cook was not done there; he also tied his calf in speedy fashion of 8.4 seconds. The time was good enough to win 3rd place in the tie down calf roping. Multi event cowboys like Logan, are considered all around hands, Logan also came out with the all-around men’s title. Logan is definitely a great asset to our team on both ends of the arena and we will continue to see him win as he battle for a couple national titles.
 
Bareback riders Travis Chapman and Tyler Johnson continued to come through for the Ponies as well. Tyler, a freshman from Athens, and Travis, a sophomore from Woodville, both scored a 77 point ride to win 3-4 places at the rodeo. The pair of bareback riders is at the top of the regional standings with Travis setting in the number 2 position, while Tyler is in the number 4 position. Both riders are very dedicated to their event and will be contenders for national and regional titles. 
 
Bodreaux Campbell bested the field in the bull riding with an 81 point bull ride. Boudreaux also won points at the Panola rodeo and is now at the top of the region in the standings. Campbell is also making his living riding bulls; he has qualified for his first NFR in Las Vegas this December.  The NFR is the richest rodeo in the world and is every cowboys and cowgirls dream. The finals in Vegas will pay around 26,000 dollars a night, for ten nights in a row. The top 15 in the world qualify for this event and is the rodeo where the true World Champion will be crowned. Boudreaux will be ready and he will be very prepared, we wish him the best. 
Panola College freshman, Campbell Grover, showed out again in the barrel racing. Campbell comes from Purvis, MS. Campbell and her 4 year old barrel horse ran a very fast time of 17.16 for an 8th place finish. Grover has placed at both of our regular season rodeo’s, being a freshman on a four year old horse, that’s an unheard of feet. We are very excited to have Campbell here and very excited about the things she will do for us. 
 
The Panola Ponies men’s team is strong and is in 2nd place for the region at this time. The top 2 teams in each region will move on to the CNFR in Casper, WY.” We just need to keep up what where doing and stay healthy; we have a goal of winning the region and moving on. We are too busy to count the points we will just keep pressing on toward our goal” says Jeffrey Collins, coach of the rodeo team.

The 2017 Tenaha ISD Hall of Honor Inductees Named


 

A time honored tradition continues at Tenaha Independent School District.  Tenaha ISD recognizes those that have displayed outstanding dedication and commitment to their community.  Through the years numerous members have been initiated into the Hall of Honor. 
The process begins with nominations from members of the community.  A committee then begins the difficult task of deciding who will be chosen.   
 
This year’s committee has named Cicily Cross-Blair and Reginald Davis III to be the 2017 Hall of Honor Inductees.  The Hall of Honor Induction ceremony will take place this Saturday, October 14th, at 4pm in the Tenaha High School Cafetorium.  
 

Pictured above, Cicily Cross-Blair, 2017 Hall of Honor Inductee

 
Cicily Cross-Blair was a decorated graduate of the class of 1992.  While in high school, Cicily participataed in basketball, golf, cheerleading, band, tennis and Beta Club.  She was also extremely active in the Tenaha 4-H Program. 
 
Cicily earned a Bachelor’s Degree in 2008 from Stephen F. Austin State University and her Master’s degree in 2011 at Texas A & M-Corpus Christi.  Her studies led her into a career in nursing which has manifested into her becoming a practicing Family Medical Practitioner.  
Cicily has left a mark everywhere she has been.  She was a cast member on the CMT Reality show “Texas Women,” and has been involved in Rodeo her entire life.  She has served as Secretary and Director of Rider Administration for Championship Bull Riding.  Cicily’s legacy is Tenaha maroon all the way as she is the owner of Cowboy Crossroads in downtown Tenaha as well as an ardent supporter of the Tigers at all turns.  
 
 
Pictured above, Reginald Davis III, 2017 Hall of Honor Inductee.
 
No story of a Tenaha Tiger making good is more remarkable than Reginald Davis.  After losing his parents and grandparents at a young age, Reginald’s family and the support of the Tenaha community and school helped push him to graduate in the top three of the Class of 2012.  Reginald was the leader of Tenaha history as he led the 2011 Tigers to the State Championship in football.  In the ultimate game at then Cowboy Stadium, Reginald racked up 548 total yards passing, rushing and on returns to lead the Tigers to the 52-28 title victory.  While in school, Reginald also led the Tiger hoops team to a State Runner-Up finish in his junior season highlighted by the Tigers’ miracle come from behind wins against Cayuga and Clarksville at the Regional Tournament.  In all, Reginald led his teams to two State Basketball appearance, an additional Regional final, a Football state title, and three individual gold medals at the State track meet in Austin
 
Reginald’s efforts have earned him a scholarship to Texas Tech University where Reginald either started or played a key role for Red Raider Football in all four of his eligible seasons.  Most importantly, Reginald graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration for Marketing in August of 2016.

Bear Update


 

School Holiday – Just a reminder that, Monday, October 9th is a Timpson ISD school holiday.  School will resume at normal time Tuesday October 10th.
 
THS News – Timpson High School Principal Ron Lindgren said the 2017-2018 school year is off to a great start.
 
Attendance – Attendance has increased over last year with 180 students enrolled in grades 9-12.  Principal Lindgren is especially pleased with student attendance with an average of 98% of students in attendance each day.
 
Advanced Placement – THS also has a record number enrolled in Advanced Placement classes.  AP classes are being offered at THS in U.S. history, government and  Spanish Language.  Students  can earn both high school and college credit by passing the advanced placement exam at the conclusion of taking the course.
 
Dual Credit – A record number of students from freshmen to seniors are also taking dual credit classes.  Some students are taking two or three classes per semester.  Passing these courses earns students both high school and college credit.  Taking these classes also allows students to prepare for taking college classes after graduation by teaching them time management, study skills and other important skills necessary to be successful in college.  THS students have the opportunity to earn a two year Associates degree.  The district pays for tuition and books for these dual credit classes.  Taking these classes as well as AP classes allows students and their parents to save on future tuition and other college related expenses.
 
Technical Vocational Classes – THS is also offering a number of opportunities for students to earn certification/licenses in fork lift certification, food handler, HVAC and take courses leading to OSHA basic electrical instrumentation and drafting.
 
Response to Intervention – Principal Lindgren is very pleased with the math and English teachers who are working to develop a response to intervention (RTI) program.  The goal of the program is to track each student to ensure they are successful in not only passing subjects but also achieving Level Three mastery on the end of course exams.  Students will take a diagnostic test to determine strengths and areas needing improvement.  Teachers will have their instruction on this date so that students are specifically being taught skills that are necessary to master the subject.  Teachers using the RTI system will be able to monitor students throughout the year to determine when they need intervention or extra assistance such as tutorials to ensure mastery of learning objectives.  Teaches will keep parents informed of their children’s progress especially if there is an area of concern.
 
THS Staff – Principal Lindgren is especially proud of his staff.  He says they are student centered and are focused on the wellbeing and academic success of their students.  He said his staff consists of dedicated professionals who work together to meet the needs of their students.  The staff recently welcomed new teacher Robert Harrison who teaches agriculture/vocational classes.  Mr. Lindgren thinks he is an excellent addition to the school Ag/Vocational program.
Counseling Program – THS guidance counselor Charlotte Metcalf said the counseling program is busy ensuring students are in the right classes that will lead to high school graduation and prepare them for post-secondary plans whether it be attending college, vocational, technical school, the service, or directly into the job market.  The counseling department is also assisting students fill out college applications.
 
Principal Lindgren and his staff appreciate the support of parents and community.  He also invites you to visit the school’s website @ http://hs.timpsonisd.com to stay up to date on all the news of Timpson High School.
 
Pre-K News – Timpson Elementary School’s pre-k class learned about the letter A.  They read the book Johnny Appleseed.  Students dipped apples in caramel and enjoyed eating the finished product!  Pre-K teacher Ms. Ramsey talked to the students about planting apple trees that grow many different types and colors of apples.
 
 
 
OSHA and Drafting Students - Timpson High School students, Jaden Johnson and Ryan Clay Stamps are excelling in OSHA and Drafting classes taken through Panola College and TISD. Their hard work was recognized with an "incentive gift" donated by PetroQuest. We can't wait to see what the future holds for these young men!

STEM News – Timpson ISD has been designated as a Texas Education Agency STEM Academy.  STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.  This year Timpson students will have expanded opportunities for hands on learning in these areas.  STEM curriculum uses real-world applications as the basis for activities.  Students learn how problem solving and the scientific process apply to everyday situations.  The curriculum aims to get students interested in STEM areas and improve proficiency in those areas.  A STEM lesson plan often starts by presenting students with a problem.  Students gather information and conduct experiments to test theories.  For example, students might create a simulated oil spill in a dish pan and test different ways to control and clean up the oil.  The key to STEM curriculum is choosing problems students can relate to and engaging students in hands-on exploration of the topic.  The curriculum also prepares students for careers that focus primarily on STEM areas and those that use it as a part of the job. One of the primary goals of the curriculum is to empower students to become leaders in science, technology and engineering and mathematics.  These areas are some of the fastest growing fields in the world.  STEM initiatives often focus on girls, as they are less likely to enter STEM fields.

Panola College Inducts Phi Theta Kappa Members


 

 

 

 

 

 

Panola College recognized the fall 2017 inductees for the Pi Beta Chapter
of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society in a ceremony at 6 p.m., Thursday, Sept.
28. The ceremony was held in the Frances B. Ross Ballroom of the Student
Center.
 
Dr. Billy Adams, Vice President of Instruction, congratulated the honorees
and shared with them the four hallmarks of PTK: scholarship, leadership,
fellowship, and service.
 
“The mission of Phi Theta Kappa is to recognize academic achievement of
college students and to provide opportunities for them to grow as scholars
and leaders. Phi Theta Kappa has a rigorous academic requirement for
admission and continued membership,” he said.
 
Dr. Adams left the oil and gas industry after 20 years to begin a career in
academia. He said he had experienced all forms of higher education,
starting out as a first generation student in traditional classroom
settings, moving to online and hybrid courses, and completing his doctorate
as a non-traditional student.
 
He encouraged the students to maintain their efforts in scholarship by
holding onto the character and qualities of a scholar, and to seek out
leadership opportunities to hone their capacity to lead.
 
“I get to work every morning at 6:30, and I spend the first hour reading
three things. I read a chapter in the Bible, the Community College Daily,
and the Chronicle of Higher Education. Whatever field you are in, read
something about it each day. Be flexible, focused and have a vision for
your life,” he said.
 
Dr. Adams said the students should seek out opportunities for fellowship
through networking, and to find ways to serve others.
 
“Problems are really opportunities, and there are no coincidences…God has a
plan for your life,” he said.
 
Professor Sandra Bauer led the Panola Pipers in the singing of two songs,
including the anthem for Phi Theta Kappa.
 
Professors Emily Zabcik, Tonya Fotinos and Roberta Collinsworth sponsor the
PTK chapter at Panola College.
 
“This fall we are pleased to have a mother-daughter duo in PTK: Kelli and
Tina Sandidge, and nine dual credit students from Beckville High School,”
Zabcik noted.
 
New inductees who participated in the ceremony include Kimberly Baker of
Longview, Lilia Benitez of Longview, Jackson Blair of Beckville, Dena
Bradley of Marshall, Brandon Castillo of Carthage, Mary Chance of Carthage,
Ethan Collins of Beckville, Shawn Cooks-Jones of Jefferson, Ashlyn Edge of
Garrison, Sarah Funderburk of Carthage, Kimberley Hanna of Carthage, Kaylee
Hull of Carthage, Hannah Humphries of Carthage, Jonathan Jenkins of Center,
Baley McGuire of Beckville, Riley Seegers of Beckville, Ahna Stacy of
Carthage, Brandi Tillman of Beckville, and Jordan Tondreau of Carthage.
 
New inductees who were unable to attend include Megan Dunn of Center,
Israel Keshinro of Carthage, Nathanael Longacre of Marshall, Leah Montandon
of Hallsville, Kelli Sandidge of Carthage, Tina Sandidge of Carthage,
Emmalee Tomaszewski of Center and Brady Wells of Center.

Adams chipped in 10. Sophomore setter Cayman Sutton dished out 34 assists.
Defensively sophomore Camie Copeland led with 18 digs, freshman Hannah
Ramirez added 13 and Rabius picked up 10 of her own.
 
 
Panola then rebounded in tournament play this weekend to outlast Indian
Hills (21-25, 25-14, 25-20, 14-25, 15-13). Jaqueline da Silva led with 10
kills, Kaitlyn Adams added 7, and the outside duo of Rebecca Rabius and
freshman Audrey Slaten combined for 12 kills (6 apiece). Cayman Sutton led
with 27 assists and freshman Molly Harris Chipped in 22. The floor defense
came up big for the Fillies with 4 players recording double-digit digs.
Ramirez led with 26, Copeland and Slaten picked up 15 each, while Sutton
added 13 as well. At the net, freshman Thaynara Godoi led with 6 total
blocks.
 
 
The Fillies took down Missouri State-West Plains (25-17, 23-15, 25-21,
25-20), Slaten led offensively with 12 kills, da Silva added 10, and
sophomore Barbara Sabino pitched in 9. Once again Sutton led in assists,
dishing out 25 while Harris trailed right behind with 19. Defensively
Sabino led with 4 block assists and 2 solos, Godoi added 2 assists and 1
solo. Ramirez anchored the floor with 17 digs, Copeland picked up 11, and
