(Rome, Georgia) – Sophomore standout Emily Cole of Adairsville, Georgia officially has a uniform waiting on her at NCCAA Toccoa Falls College in Toccoa, Georgia this fall. Cole, a Lady Cats Women’s Basketball captain for the 2012-13 program, will wear the Lady Eagles jersey in the 2013-14 season.

A standout shooting guard for NJCAA Region XVII member Georgia Northwestern for the past two years, Cole caught the eye of Toccoa Falls College’s coaching staff during a non-region match-up with the Lady Cats in Rome, Georgia last season. Averaging 10 points per game in region play in her sophomore campaign, Cole will take her game and remaining two years of collegiate eligibility to Eagles Country this August.

The Adairsville (GA) alum closed out her last Lady Cats regular season with 16 points in a regular season finale which clinched the regular season championship for Georgia Northwestern in toppling Middle Georgia Tech, 68-66. Cole entered last season as a pre-season NJCAA All-Region First Team starter. The Lady Cats finished their regular season with a 15-10 mark.

Also joining Cole in Toccoa will be Rockmart, Georgia’s Alana Jones. After one year in a reserve role for Georgia Northwestern, the form Rockmart H.S. (GA) standout made the decision to also commit to Toccoa Falls. Jones was signed into the Lady Cats den just one year ago after coming off of a standout senior season in her prep career in GHSA’s Region 7-AA.
