Lady Cats Set Sights On Music City This Weekeend

 

 

(Cleveland, TN) – Freshman Lady Cat Brecia Hall (Coosa) led the way for Georgia Northwestern as they hit the Volunteer State Tuesday night for their 2013-14 season opener at Cleveland State. Hall would lead with 17 points and six boards in the effort which saw the Lady Cougars take the game, 90-49.

Cleveland, Tennessee-native Kiarra Parks (Pepperell) highlighted her homecoming with seven points, four assists, two steals, and three boards in the non-region loss against the NJCAA Division I opponent.

Georgia Northwestern (0-1) would shoot 70-percent from the charity stripe in the loss. However, the Lady Cats would be held to 27-percent from the field in the opener at L. Quention Lane Gymnasium.

The Lady Vikings (2-0) would be lead by freshman Aysia Grimsley (Marietta, GA) with 13 points in the win over the Lady Cats. Freshman Forward Jamesha Mosley (Hopkinsville, KY) would make the most headlines from her post position with seven steals, seven points, and four assists.

Georgia Northwestern and Cleveland State both hit I-40 West on Friday night for a pair of November road games. The Lady Cats will take part in the Welch College Invitational in Nashville, Tennessee. Cleveland State will visit West Tennessee to battle it out with TJCCAA opponent Dyersburg State.

Lady Cats Open Season Tonight At Cleveland State

Georgia Northwestern Boasts NJCAA All-Region Honorees, Prep Standouts

Lady Cats 2013 Basketball Shoot-13

(Rome, GA) – With the strength of four NJCAA All-Region honorees in the line-up, Georgia Northwestern opens its 2013-14 Women’s Basketball season with a trip to the Volunteer State tonight for a 6 p.m. tip-off with Division I Cleveland State in the confines of L. Quentin Lane Gymnasium.

Lady Cats Head Coach Jim Williams returns at the helm for season number four and a shot at the college’s fourth consecutive region championship. “We’ve got a great group of student-athletes and really hope to compete well again this time around,” said Williams. “Our returners will make a big difference in how we perform this season.”

Leading the way for Georgia Northwestern as they make their way through NJCAA Region XVII in 2013-14 is Canton, Georgia-native Alyssa Nichelson. At 5-foot-8, the former Creekview H.S. (GA) standout is an all-region first-team member. Sophomore Lady Cat guard Kiarra Parks also received all-region first-team honors heading into the new schedule.

Nichelson and Parks dropped in 11 points a game in their freshman campaigns last season. The 5-foot-4 Parks, a former Pepperell HS (GA) standout, would add four boards and two swipes a night, as well.

Lady Cat outside shooter Sierra Smith returns after hitting from beyond the arc at a 31-percent click in 2012-13. Missing from the line-up is her back court counterpart from last season in Emily Cole. The former Adairsville HS (GA) sharpshooter signed with Toccoa Falls College in the offseason after completing her two years of eligibility at Georgia Northwestern.

The most noticeable absence comes beneath the glass as the Lady Cats have to fill the shoes of Odessa Person. The 5-foot-10 forward rounded out last season ranked seventh in the nation in rebounds. Averaging 14 boards each outing, the Lineville, Alabama-native managed to grab the attention of the NJCAA with four 20-plus rebound performances during her sophomore run.

Williams has his eyes on freshman forward Caroline Long to help soften the blow in the post. Long, a 6-foot-1 freshman forward from Model HS (GA), will lead the Lady Cats front court this season. Long, along with 5-foot-8 freshman guard Alisha Bridger, were named NJCAA All-Region second-team honorees. Bridger is in her first year with Georgia Northwestern after completing her prep career at Sonoraville HS (GA).

In usual Jim Williams style, the non-region schedule in November and December is extremely tough. The line-up of opponents consists of several four-year programs and a handful of nationally-ranked Division I Juco opponents. Among the national junior college powerhouses the Lady Cats will use for tune-up matches are Gadsden State (AL), Albany State (GA), Georgia Highlands, and Prince George’s CC (MD).

Georgia Northwestern Closes Out Schedule Tuesday

(The R.A.C., Rossville, Georgia) – Size and precision helped Georgia Northwestern earn a split versus a pair of NCCAA Women’s Volleyball programs in a Tri-Match Friday night at the Rossville Athletic Complex (R.A.C.).

Six-foot-one sophomore Lady Bobcat Holly Mount (Heritage) drove home a dozen kills and six blocks while freshman Rachel McGill (Ringgold) locked in for eight aces, five kill shots, and 25 assists in best-of-three matches versus Trinity Baptist (FL) and Tennessee Temple.

The Lady Cats would snap a four-match slide with the opener Friday dropping Trinity Baptist 22-25, 25-18, 25-15. However, it would be best-of-three defeat at the hands of Tennessee Temple, 6-25, 25-23, 7-25.

Georgia Northwestern (5-12) will play the road end of a home and away set with Hiwassee College on Monday night at Youell Gymnasium in Madisonville, Tennessee. The Lady Cats swept the home side of the set on September 13, three-games-to-none.

The Lady Cats will close out the 2013 campaign at The R.A.C. with what will be the most anticipated match of the season for Georgia Northwestern Head Women’s Volleyball Coach Carrie Powell.

Oakwood University (AL) will take the trip from Huntsville to take on the Lady Cats. The Lady Ambassadors escaped Huntsville’s Elmore Gymnasium on October 15 with a best-of-five match that went the distance, 25-20, 25-16, 16-25, 19-25, 20-22.

Getting Feet Wet, Cats’ Parrish, Tankersley Lead First Effort

Georgia Northwestern Preps For Inaugural Season With Fall Tourney

(Rome, Georgia) – Georgia Northwestern took part this past weekend in one of two scheduled pre-season fall tournaments before teeing off the college’s inaugural season of intercollegiate golf this spring.

The Chick-Fil-A Invitational in Rome, Georgia saw the Cats Golf program take a 23rd place finish. Georgia Northwestern played round one at Stonebridge Golf Club on Monday, September 30. Round two was held at Coosa Country Club.

Freshman Bobcat golfers Brandon Parrish and Drew Tankersley led the way in the college’s initial offering. Tankersley led the way on Monday with a 77 (+5) at Stonebridge. After teeing off at number nine, Tankersley would shoot even par through the first eight holes of play Monday. A double bogey and bogey combination on 17 and 18 would keep things slightly above par for the rest of the day. Tankersley posted an 83 on day two for a tournament total 160 (+16).

On Tuesday, it was fellow Cat linkster Brandon Parrish who would pick up the pace when the squad teed off at Coosa Country Club. Parrish would birdie 15 and 16 to finish day two with a 76 (+4), leading the way for Georgia Northwestern in the tourney with an overall 155 (+11) Also suiting up for the Cats in the Floyd County, Georgia event this week were Gavin Reeves, Adrian Petino, Jermaine Carter, and Shawn Welch.

“A lot of tension, nervousness, as we got going Monday. But we really made some progress between day one and day two,” said Georgia Northwestern Head Men’s Golf Coach Jared Willerson. “We’ve got a couple of weeks to make preparations for our other big event this fall. We should see some good growth out of each of these student-athletes by then.”

Georgia Northwestern will tee things off in their second warm-up event for the inaugural season this spring by heading to the Maryville (TN) Invitational at Green Meadow Country Club October 18-19.

Georgia Northwestern Turning Things Around At Mid-Season

(Barnes Gymnasium, Lookout Mountain, Georgia) – Georgia Northwestern continues to roar back into the win column, winner of four of its last six matches over the last two weeks. Thursday night, the Lady Cats split a tri-match at Covenant College losing first to Bryan College, 16-25, 14-25. They would then pick up the pace closing out host Covenant JV, 27-25, 25-16, 21-25, 29-27.

“We really seem to be picking up steam as we hit the mid-point of the schedule,” said Georgia Northwestern second-year head coach Carrie Powell. The Cats closed out their 2012 re-launch campaign with an overall 2-13 mark. This year’s edition of the Lady Cats (4-7) have already doubled their win output from just one year ago. “Last year, size hurt us. This year, we have a front line presence which none of our competitors had to worry about before.”

Freshman Lady Cat middle hitter Victoria Sprouse (5-foot-10) rifled down 13 kills shots and served up four aces in the road split Thursday. Sophomore middle hitter Holly Mount (6-foot-1) also hammered home 13 kills on the night. Also contributing were freshmen Casey Chapman (5-foot-10) with nine kills and four aces and setter Rachel McGill with three kills, three aces, two blocks, and 33 assists.

Georgia Northwestern now owns a series split with Covenant JV. The Lady Scots swept the Cats at The R.A.C. (Rossville Athletic Complex) on September 9. Powell’s Cats have a chance to even things up with Bryan’s Lady Lions on Monday night. That’s when Georgia Northwestern makes the drive up Highway 27 to Dayton, Tennessee to play in the confines of Summers Gymnasium on the Bryan College campus. The Best-of-Five match is set to start at 6:30 p.m.

“October is going to be a huge measuring stick for us,” said Powell. “After the Bryan road trip, we’ll have three home dates and three away dates going into October. It’ll be some of the toughest competition we’ll face. I’m excited to see how we will measure up.”

Bobcats Sign NW Georgia Hardwood, Track Standout

Georgia Northwestern Inks Ridgeland’s McLin

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

(Walker County, GA) – With tryouts just over two months away at Georgia Northwestern, Bobcats Head Men’s Basketball Coach David Stephenson is one person closer to filling the 15 jerseys the NJCAA program has on hand.

Ridgeland (GA) alum Xavier McLin made his commitment to GNTC in a ceremony at the Walker County, Georgia high school just before his senior graduation in late May. The 6-foot-2 swingman may be Stephenson’s last signing for the 2013-14 signing class. “This is an excellent signing to begin closing out this year’s recruitment,” said Stephenson.

Now entering his seventh season as top Bobcat, Stephenson says he’s extremely pleased with McLin’s signing. “Xavier is a solid person. Great character that he takes the length of the court for the length of the game,” said Stephenson. Stephenson first joined Georgia Northwestern in 2007. Now in his 26th year of coaching high school and collegiate basketball, the seasoned coach also serves at the college’s athletic director, as well.

McLin, a senior leader for the 2012-13 edition of the Ridgeland Panthers, also was a prep standout in track in the state of Georgia. “Going to (Georgia) Northwestern was sort of a no-brainer for me,” said McLin. “My parents really instilled the fact that academics must come first. I can see that happening now. Plus, Coach Stephenson reminds me of my dad. He’s very strong-willed and sees things in people that others may not see.”

The senior Panther baller averaged just over 10 points a game for the GHSA Region 7-AAAA prep power. “He got most of his points this year when he found his stride and really started taking the basketball to the rim,” said Ridgeland’s fourth-year Head Coach David Stoker.

The three-man for the Panthers fought his way back from a mid-season injury against Heritage (GA) in which he took a hard fall to the ground after blocking a shot off the glass in the final minute of that rivalry match-up. “He hurt his non-shooting hand and thought we may lose him for the season,” said Stoker. “But he fought his way back and was ready to play by our region tournament. He’s a great kid with great potential. And on the court, Xavier is just so deceivingly long.”

As for the rest of this year’s Bobcat recruiting class, McLin joins Silverdale Baptist’s (TN) John Hall, Northwest Whitfield’s (GA) Dustin Stanley, and Dalton’s (GA) Rico Mears, Demond Rucker, and Brandon Painter. “Dustin brings us solid size and a lot of grit at 6-foot-6, 215, the Dalton guys bring us chemistry just months removed from a region where they ran rough shot over the competition, and John helped lead his program to its first-ever trip to the TSSAA regional tournament. We have an interesting group of talent and determination headed our way.”

Lady Cats Ink Adairsville’s Bramblett

Georgia Northwestern Rounding Out Title Defense Recruitment

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

(Adairsville, Georgia) – As one Adairsville alum who left her mark on Lady Cats basketball gets set to ink with four-year Toccoa Falls, it’s Tiger Country that will once again provide Georgia Northwestern with another outside threat to help fill Emily Cole’s place on the NJCAA hardwood.

Standing at 5-foot-5, Adairsville grad Mallory Bramblett has committed to playing her first year at NJCAA Region XVII defending champion Georgia Northwestern. “She’s very unselfish and she is a great pass maker. The hustle and attitude we saw at an open workout recently was very eye-opening,” said Lady Cats Head Women’s Basketball Coach Jim Williams. “She’s a team player and she really knows the game.”

Cole, a Lady Cat captain and a former NJCAA All-Region shooting guard for Georgia Northwestern, will be signing a letter of intent to play in June to play for NCAA Division III Toccoa Falls College in Toccoa, Georgia this fall.

As for the latest signee, the Lady Tiger four-year starter will begin her pursuit of an Occupational Therapy Assistant degree this fall at Georgia Northwestern. “I’ve heard great things from Emily (Cole) about the program and I feel we will have a ton of fun and have a chance at going far,” said last year’s double digit scorer for Adairsville. “Emily had a lot of success there and I think this year’s group will have a real chance at that, too.”

First picking up the basketball at eight years old, Bramblett played ball with mostly boys early on. “It was physical, but I really learned a lot and liked that style of game,” said Bramblett. Rounding out the 2013 recruiting class for Georgia Northwestern are GHSA prep standouts 6-foot forward Caroline Long (Model) and 5-foot-10 Tiana Jones (Summerville).

Georgia Northwestern finished the 2012-13 season with a 15-10 mark. Williams was named the NJCAA’s Region XVII Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season. The NJCAA Region XVII title was vacated in 2013 leaving the Lady Cats as the defending champs once again from their capture of the 2012 title; a season crown that came complete with a trip to the district level of the NJCAA National Women’s Basketball Tournament.

Bramblett will be learning from last year’s NJCAA Region XVII All-First Team starters Kiarra Parks and Alyssa Nichelson. Parks, a Cleveland, Tennessee native, dropped in 11 points a game last season as a freshman. In her first year removed from her prep play at Georgia’s Pepperell High School, Parks also pulled down four boards, dished out three assists, and stole two balls each outing. Nichelson, a Creekview High School (Canton, GA) alum, also added 11 points a pop on the season.

Tryouts and open workouts for the 2013-14 Lady Cats will be posted at BobcatsCountry.com.

N.E. Alabama, N.W. Georgia Focus For Lady Cats Cheer

Bobcats Round Out First Competitive Signing Season

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

(Flat Rock, Alabama) – Recruiting for student-athletes in Northwest Georgia and the Tennessee Valley can be extremely competitive. For Northwest Georgia’s largest college, recruit signings have becoming more of a celebration of the best talent the region has to offer rather than an official school event.

“We’ve had colleges come and do signings all spring. However, it’s more of a family atmosphere and a showcase with (Georgia) Northwestern,” said Dade County High School’s Head Cheer Coach Lindsey Moore. “Recruiting for our region’s top cheerleaders has really picked up since they came into the picture.”

With Georgia Northwestern’s first year of intercollegiate cheerleading just months away, the Lady Cats have rounded out their NJCAA recruiting season with its focus turning to Sand Mountain and Trenton, Georgia.

The final weeks of May saw Georgia Northwestern recruiters making trips up and down Sand Mountain between, Ider, North Sand Mountain, and Dade County High Schools. As the signing season comes to a close, Georgia Northwestern has now inked Ider’s Nicolesha Russell, North Sand Mountain’s Paige Vaughn, and Dade County’s Rachelle Blansit and Maggie Tharp.

“I’m excited about competing with so many cheerleaders from across the area,” said North Sand Mountain’s Paige Vaughn after her May signing. “We’ve all competed in so many of the same competitions in high school. And now after this year with Coach Stoker recruiting me and some of the others from the area, we’ve had a lot to talk about and look forward to.”

In addition to early signees Tara Clark (LaFayette), Mikayla Derryberry (Ridgeland), Desirea Famber (Dalton), and Mina Winters (LaFayette), the Lady Cats have a solid eight NJCAA student-athletes that will serve as the cornerstones of Georgia Northwestern’s latest intercollegiate athletic offering which is expected to field an initial squad of 16 cheerleaders.

“All eight are tremendous athletes and leaders on their prep squads,” said Stoker. “We couldn’t afford to have anything less than best with this being our pilot season.”
The Gordon Lee Invitational Cheer Competition held in Chickamauga, Georgia last October gave first-year Cats Cheer Head Coach Karen Stoker a great look at what the area had to offer in 2013. “We used that event as a great recruiting tool for us,” said Stoker. “We are putting together a team that can compete, not just show up. This is an opportunity for the region’s best to take their skill sets to the collegiate level. It’s a chance to showcase what we have to offer, as well as what these athletes can do in the classroom and on the floor.”

For the 2012-13 season, the Cats Cheer program will solely cheer for the college’s NJCAA Region XVII Men’s and Women’s Basketball programs which run from October through March. The college is looking into the possibility of expanding the program in the near future, as well as adding more athletic offerings through its Northwest Georgia campuses. The Bobcat Golf program is set to tee off in spring of 2014 as the search for the program’s first coach is now underway.

Cats Ink Chattanooga Hardwood Prospect

Georgia Northwestern Signs Silverdale’s Hall

(Chattanooga, TN) – Barely 18 years old, one of Chattanooga’s top prep prospects made the decision to ink with Georgia Northwestern in a May 10 signing at Silverdale Baptist Academy in Hamilton County, Tennessee.

John Hall, a 6-foot-3, 185-pound slasher, dropped in 15 points and pulled down 10 boards a game during his senior campaign with the Hawks. “He is a leader that plays above the rim. He’s truly a coach on the floor and that’s so helpful,” said Silverdale’s Head Boys’ Basketball Coach Randy Evans who will be entering his second year as top Hawk this fall.

“Whether I get in for one minute or twenty minutes a game in college, I just want to give what I can. God’s blessed me and I want to just be a part of it all,” said Hall in a signing-day interview. “They are giving me an opportunity. I’ll serve how I’m needed.” During his high school run, Hall helped lead Silverdale to its first-ever post-season regional tournament bid in the TSSAA’s Region 3-A bracket.

It was a reunion of sorts on this signing day as Georgia Northwestern Head Men’s Basketball Coach David Stephenson returned to familiar grounds. For three years, Stephenson served as a coach for boys’ and girl’s teams at Silverdale nearly a decade ago. “John (Hall), and a couple of other potential players for the three-spot, will be drilled vigorously to figure out where he will fit into the puzzle,” said Stephenson. “He’s a true inside-out presence.”

Hall first gained notoriety on a larger stage in another sport. At 12 years of age, Silverdale Baptist Academy’s John Hall was already on a roll. He represented the United States in an international bowling program sponsored by the United States Bowling Congress. “I think I placed like 54th in the world or something,” said Hall. “I then got to play on the varsity bowling team at Silverdale in the eighth grade. However, I wasn’t going to skip bowling for basketball so that was my last year of that.”

During his elementary school years, Hall primarily played Upward Basketball in Chattanooga. “Now that I look back on it, it was a great opportunity for up-and-coming players,” said Hall. “It’s like when I first gave my life to Christ, being a part of something where you get to preach through basketball is great.”

Evans and his Hawks will be filling a large hole in the 2013-14 season. “John just plays so much bigger than he is,” said Evans. “Other teams just realizing he can play both sides of the court successfully was a bonus for us. Most coaches ask me if he plays football, too. He’s got that size and strength that you usually see in a football player. Once he gets above the rim, he is going to finish.”

Now entering his seventh year as the Bobcats head coach, Stephenson says he is running a recruiting season in which he is signing student-athletes with what he calls “grit.” Stephenson says Hall fits that mold. “He brings a lot of character to our team. He’s the kind of person you just love to coach,” said Stephenson. “We have brought in a lot of solid good young men that understand this program is about success, but academic success, first and foremost.”
