Cats Cheer Wins 2016 National Title

(Myrtle Beach, SC) – About three years ago, when Georgia Northwestern first began its cheerleading program, head coach Karen Stoker admittedly didn’t know too much about the sport on the collegiate level.

Today, she can add College National Championship Coach on her resume.

The Cheer Cats became the first team in the 10-year history of the athletic department of Georgia Northwestern to win a national title when they took home top honors of the collegiate division at the Eastern Cheer and Dance Nationals in Mrytle Beach, S.C. on Sunday.

“When we started the program, I didn’t know if we would ever be a competition squad,” she said on Sunday night. “I spent the first year just recruiting and trying to become knowledgeable about college cheerleading. I was just happy with the way we were supporting our teams, so when the kids (last year) wanted to try and earn a bid to nationals, I was just thrilled when they got one.”

Just 12 months later, Stoker will have a bright, shiny new national championship trophy to sell to potential recruits.

“For me personally, I’m tickled, but it’s really all about the kids and how important this is to them,” she continued. “Today was a good day and was a good feeling for all the kids to walk up on stage and get that national championship banner and trophy. I’m one content coach.”

Coming off a seventh-place showing in their division at the National Cheerleading Association nationals in Florida in April of 2015, the Cheer Cats had earned a return trip to NCA Nationals last summer through their performance at a cheer camp in Louisville, Ky.

But when the squad ended up losing some of its athletes to due to injury and other reasons and did not have enough athletes to compete in NCA, Stoker set out to find a new national competition for her squad.

“I found Eastern Cheer and Dance and it offered a good division for us where we didn’t have to compete against the larger Division I schools,” she explained.

Stoker said the squad scored high from the judges in the Game Day part of the routine and “expressed themselves really well as college cheerleaders.” The Cheer Cats ended with 439 points – 437.25 after a deduction – but still had a high enough score to take home the championship.

“Our pyramids and tosses were pretty strong,” she added. “We did well with jumps and tumbling and the judges said we had good crowd appeal. It wasn’t a perfect routine – we did have the one deduction – but the things we did, we did well.”

With the win, the Cheer Cats also earned a bid to the U.S. Finals, which Stoker compared to getting a bid to the Olympic Trials.

“It’s something we’ll be looking into,” she said. “I’m not sure if we’ll end up going or not, but it’s nice to open that (championship) packet and know we have that option.”

David Stephenson, the school’s Athletic Director and the person who helped bring Stoker in to start up the program at Georgia Northwestern, said the national championship was something that could only help the athletic department as a whole.

“When we started talking about having cheerleading a few years ago, I didn’t know what to expect,” he said. “But having (the Cheer Cats) has brought a different dynamic to our whole athletic department. It’s another great recruiting tool. It helps to get the Bobcat brand out there and adding something of this prestige will only enhance it.

“Karen and her staff do a great job and always have so it’s nice to see it all culminate with this. I’m proud for all the kids and happy for her and her staff.”

Stoker said to end the year in this fashion was a thrill for both the cheerleaders coming back and the ones that will be leaving the program.

“For the four that will be leaving us – Selena Dupree, Virgil McCoy, Mayvit Sandoval and Codie Weldon (Shredder, the school’s Bobcat mascot) – it’s a great way to go out,” she said. “And for the ones coming back, it’s a great way to springboard into a new year. They are already making big plans for next year.”

Stoker also expressed her gratitude to Grant and Rachel Magness of Hot Shots in Rome for helping the team with its choreography.

Sports Injury Specialist, Georgia College Have Athletic Touch

(Chattanooga, Tennessee) – As the Georgia Northwestern Technical College (GNTC) Athletic Department begins to plan its 10th year of intercollegiate competition, the corporate partnerships from both sides of the Georgia/Tennessee state line continue to grow. In an era, where many schools have to work hard to make ends meet when it comes to athletics, the long-term vision of GNTC’s programs are made possible, in part, by the help of Inn8 Touch Massage in East Ridge, Tennessee.

 

Owner Derek Bhimji has been in business for five years and simply wants to give back to help athletes excel. “I want to help these student-athletes to perform the way they want so they can continue to do what they love,” said Bhimji. “We specialize in sports massage and neuromuscular therapy. These areas are key for the athletes in the college’s athletic programs.”

 

The college first launched its two initial athletic offerings, Men’s and Women’s Basketball and Women’s Volleyball nearly a decade ago. After seeing their first action on the court in early 2008, it wouldn’t be long after that local companies would begin to see a real benefit in what GNTC was providing. Bhimji is no exception and now one of more than a dozen regular contributors to Georgia Northwestern Athletics each year.

 

“For the past few years, David has come to our facilities to give the athletes sports massages, as well as speak with them about how to rehab injuries they are suffering,” said GNTC Athletics Coordinator David Stephenson. “His steady support of what we do, along with the growing number of others who are giving to our programs with each passing year, shows me the level of impact we are having in our North Georgia communities.”

 

Stephenson and Bhimji have been working on the collegiate partnership since 2013. Bhimji’s business, Inn8 Touch Massage Therapy, is located in East Ridge, Tennessee. Bhimji and his wife, Brittney, have two children, as well.

 

Donations made to GNTC Athletics are made by way of the Georgia Northwestern Technical College Foundation. From academic programs to intercollegiate athletic offerings at the Technical College System of Georgia institute, all gifts to any function of the college are managed by the GNTC Foundation. GNTC Director of Institutional Advancement Jason Gamel leads a team of community leaders from across the college’s nine-county service area in helping gain support of the companies and people the college serves throughout the year.

Cats Cheer Qualify For Nationals, Headed To Daytona Beach

Georgia Northwestern In Televised National Collegiate Cheer Competition

The Georgia Northwestern Bobcats cheerleaders will take the mat at the NCA Nationals in Daytona Beach on Thursday morning. Georgia Northwestern is in their second year as a cheer program and qualified for nationals on their first attempt.
The Georgia Northwestern Bobcats cheerleaders will take the mat at the NCA Nationals in Daytona Beach on Thursday morning. Georgia Northwestern is in their second year as a cheer program and qualified for nationals on their first attempt.

(Rock Spring, GA) – Nearly two years’ worth of dreams and several months’ worth of practice is about to become reality for the Georgia Northwestern Cheer Cats.

After finding out in late January that they had qualified, Georgia Northwestern will make its National Cheerleaders Association (NCA) National Championship debut in Daytona Beach, Florida later this week.

The Cheer Cats will be the first team to take the beachside mats on Thursday morning (8:54 a.m.) to kick off competition in Co-Ed Intermediate Division II. The division is comprised of teams with one or males from Division II, Division III, NAIA, junior college and community college schools.

Georgia Northwestern earned a trip to Nationals after submitting a video entry that showed off their stunts, pyramids, tumbling, basket tosses and game day performances. Judges who watched and evaluated the video notified the squad that they had been selected as a qualifier on Jan. 28.

“We feel very fortunate,” said head coach Karen Stoker. “Last year, there were 21 teams in this division. This year, only nine qualified so we feel good just knowing that we were one of just nine (in the country) that qualified in our division.”

The Cheer Cats will first perform their 45-second game day routine before setting up for their 2:30 music routine. The teams with the top five scores will automatically advance to Friday’s finals with the rest of the squads coming back at 3 p.m. for the Challenge Cup. Those squads competing in the Challenge Cup will do their long routine once more with one team moving into the finals as sort of a wild card squad.

Only the game day routine scores carry over to the finals.

Sophomore Rhys Turner said she was excited, but also admitted to a case of nerves with the competition just a few days away.

“I’m really excited, but also very nervous,” she explained. “There’s going to be a lot of people there and performing in front of a big crowd gets me pumped up and gives me an adrenaline rush. But driving down there and waiting that first night in the hotel room and thinking about it is going to be nerve-wracking. Still, I’d love to go down there and take a big title back home with us.”

The squad has been practicing two or three days a week for two to three hours at a day to get ready for their NCA debut, plus doing individual work on their own at home to hone their skills.

“We’ve been working really hard and I expect us to do our best,” said fellow sophomore Alex Smith. “If we do that, I can live with the outcome. I’m feeling a little pressure, but we are the first squad (from Georgia Northwestern) to make it to Nationals so that has to count for something.”

The Cheer Cats breathed a sigh of relief this past week when the NCA granted them a special exemption to possibly compete with a squad of just nine members instead of the usually required 10-member minimum.

“Unfortunately, we’ve had an injury that we are trying to work around just in case we won’t have everyone available,” Stoker said. “But they all have done a good job of making those changes and not letting it get them down too much. We appreciate NCA for allowing us to compete with nine if it comes to that.”

Even with a full roster, Georgia Northwestern will likely have the smallest squad, in terms of numbers, that will perform in the entire competition. However, Stoker said this competition will be about quality, not quantity.

“We’ll be going up against some teams in our division that will have up to 20 (members),” she explained. “But it’s not how many you have up there, it’s how clean and how well you do the routine.”

The veteran cheerleading coach also admitted to feeling a little pressure of her own.

“There’s probably a little more pressure just because it’s the first time for us,” she added. “Next time we go (to Nationals), and the times that follow after that, I won’t be so nervous because I will know what to expect.”

Stoker said the team will stick around on Saturday to see other cheer events, like partner stunt and mascot competitions, as well as more “fun” activities like shopping and beach and pool time.

“But just getting to see all these squads perform up close, wow,” she continued. “And getting to meet all of them and develop relationships will be great.”

Stoker expressed her thanks to Georgia Northwestern, Athletic Director David Stephenson, cheer consultant Grant Magness and all of her squad members, coaches and parents for helping them reach this point.

(Rossville, GA) – The anticipated return of the Georgia Northwestern Lady Bobcats volleyball team to the court at the Rossville Athletic Center finally took place on Thursday night and the Navy-and-Silver didn’t disappoint.

Playing host to visiting Welch College of Nashville, the Lady Bobcats sent their guests back to the Music City with a straight-sets loss, 25-22, 25-19 and 25-21.

GNTC (2-1) led by four at the midway point of the first set, only to see Welch rally and take a 22-20 lead when Bobcats head coach Carrie Powell used her last allowed substitution.

It turned out to be the right call as the Lady Bobcats reeled off the final five points, thanks to some brilliant late-game serving off the bench from Katlyn Bishop.

The second set would start out the way of Welch, who stormed out of the gates to grab a 9-2 lead. Undaunted, the Lady Bobcats clawed their way back, tying the match at 14. They worked their way to a 23-19 advantage before an ace by Layna Jenkins and a kill by Sabrina Garcia gave GNTC the set.

The third and final set was a tight one throughout before the Lady Bobcats finally were able to wrestle away the momentum for good.

A kill by Casey Chapman tied things up at 20 and two consecutive hitting errors by Welch put the home team three points from clinching the match. Mikiah Treece had a couple of outstanding digs late in the match and another Welch hitting error, brought on by a hard shot from Garcia, polished off the sweep.

“We should have come out a lot stronger than we did,” Powell said. “Maybe we were just nervous playing at home, but we found a way to win and that’s all that really matters. Welch has a scrappy team and they got to some balls we didn’t think they could get to, but it’s always nice to be able to beat a four-year college.”

Holly Mount paced the offense with eight kills, while Garcia finished with seven on the night. Rachel McGill dished out 15 assists. Treece had a solid game defensively with 23 digs, while Ashley Bradley added eight. Bishop led the Lady Bobcats with three aces.

GNTC will hit the road on Monday, joining Alice Lloyd College for a tri-match at Hiwassee College in Madisonville, Tenn. starting at 6:30 p.m.

(Rock Spring, GA) – The home school-based Chattanooga Patriots have made their mark in high school athletics over the past several years and now one of their own will be looking to make her mark at Georgia Northwestern Technical College.
Lady Bobcats head coach Carrie Powell announced the signing of Mikiah Treece following a ceremony at the college last Wednesday. Treece, a
5-foot-6 outside hitter, will give the Lady Bobcats power on the front row and a solid defensive player in the back.
“I’m really looking forward to having Mikiah,” Powell said. “She’s a really strong power hitter with all the potential to be a good outside player for us.”
It was Treece who first contacted Powell about the possibility of joining the Lady Bobcats and Powell said she was glad she did.
“She was wanting to come to Georgia Northwestern and further her volleyball career and luckily it all worked out,” said the coach. “I think it’s a really good fit for all of us. She’s really outgoing and a very sweet girl.
She’s been to some of our open gyms this summer and the other players have already taken to her really well.”
Treece attended Heritage Middle School and went to Heritage High School for one year before leaving to be home-schooled. In addition to playing with the Patriots, Treece also played some club volleyball under the direction of Coach Paul Brock.
She said joining the Lady Bobcats was a dream come true.
“My sister also played volleyball and ever since I was in the second grade, my goal has been to be a college volleyball player,” she explained. “I was looking around at colleges and heard about (Georgia Northwestern’s) program. I liked that fact that it wasn’t too far from my house, so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to give it a try. I talked to Coach (Powell), had a tryout and she liked me and wanted me to sign.”
Treece said even though the season is still a couple of months away, she already feels like part of the team.
“I love the other girls,” she said. “They are all awesome and have great personalities. We’re all getting along really well so far. They’ve been encouraging and I think we’re going to have a great season.”
In addition to her hitting and other skills, Treece says she hopes she can bring positivity to the squad.
“I hope I can bring a good attitude, encouragement and just lift everyone up,” she explained. “Even if we can’t win, we can still have a good attitude and do it for the honor of God.”
Treece wants to become a paramedic and later a pediatric nurse.

LaFayette’s Stanfield Inks With Cats Golf

Joining Keaton Stanfield (seated, center) for his signing ceremony were Mark Stanfield and Denise Smith, LaFayette High School golf coach Tom Langford and Georgia Northwestern Technical College golf coach Jared Willerson.
Joining Keaton Stanfield (seated, center) for his signing ceremony were Mark Stanfield and Denise Smith, LaFayette High School golf coach Tom Langford and Georgia Northwestern Technical College golf coach Jared Willerson.

(LaFayette, GA) – Keaton Stanfield took up the game of golf in middle school just to, in his words, “have something to do all the time that was fun”.
However, in the course of having fun, Stanfield found a passion and drive for the sport he didn’t expect, spending hour after hour and day after day on the golf course, working hard to get better.
That drive and competitive spirit helped the LaFayette Ramblers to a Region 7-AAAA title this past spring and, more recently, it earned him a future as a college golfer as the recent graduate signed a letter of intent to join the Bobcats of Georgia Northwestern Technical College.
“It just means a lot to know I’m moving on to the next level,” he said during a signing ceremony and reception at his home course. “I’ve never have experienced anything like this before with a big ceremony and everything. I’m just proud of myself and all the practice I’ve put in my game.”
Stanfield said he took up the game early in middle school, but quickly got hooked.
“It didn’t take me long to get serious about (golf),” he said. “I started improving and I really surprised myself with how many birdies I started making.”
After Stanfield and the Ramblers defeated Pickens in a playoff to win the region title at Nob North in April, he carded a solid 6-over par
78 at the Class 4A state tournament in Augusta to help LaFayette place third overall, equaling the program’s best finish in five years.
“I’m just tickled for Keaton,” LHS golf coach Tom Langford said. “He’s worked so hard and there have been very few days when he hasn’t been out here on the golf course. I don’t know if I’ve ever coached a kid that loves the game and loves to compete as much as he does. We always played him way up in the lineup because I knew he would battle and that he wouldn’t be intimidated by anyone. He was always consistent with his scoring no matter the tournament. Plus, he’s just a great kid.”
GNTC golf coach Jared Willerson said he was excited to get a player of Stanfield’s skill and determination.
“He’s made himself into a solid player,” Willerson. “He’s the kind of kid that will fight back from setbacks and do the best they can and that’s the kind of kid you want when you are trying to build a program. He’s a battler, just like the rest of the guys we have signed. He always come to play and I think he’ll develop into a good player for us.”
Stanfield is just the latest addition to a GNTC squad that also includes recent signees Jordan Estes (Ringgold), John Rollins (Trion) and Lanier Guest (Gordon Lee). The Bobcats will be eligible for region and national junior college championships next season.
“I love the coach (at GNTC) and I love the team he’s putting together,” Stanfield explained. “They’ve already impressed me with some of the scores they have put up and hopefully I can impress them too. I’m glad to be on the same team with these guys.”
“It’s a really good recruiting class we’ve got coming in,” Willerson said. “If we keep working hard, I really think we are going to be a competitor next year.”
Stanfield said he his undecided on a major, but is considering a career in golf course management.

(Catoosa County, Georgia) – When you are the younger brother of two recent northwest Georgia high school basketball standouts, you almost can’t help but have some of it rub off on you.
Heritage senior Cameron Sherlin is hoping use the knowledge gained from his siblings, along with the skills he’s honed on the floor with the Generals and on his own, to help the Georgia Northwestern Bobcats become region and national contenders.
Sherlin recently signed a letter of intent with the junior college Bobcats in front of a large crowd of family, friends, coaches and teammates at Heritage High School.
“This is just awesome,” Sherlin said. “I’m ready to play at Georgia Northwesten and I’ve been working hard so hopefully I can go over there and make a big impact on the team.”
During his time with the Generals, Sherlin made his mark as one the program’s all-time leading shooters and one of the area’s top long-range threats.
“He’s been a big part of our offense for the last three years,”
Heritage head coach Kevin Terry. “He’s a tremendous shooter with unbelievable range and he should be able to stretch the defense. If you don’t come out to guard him, he can make you pay.”
Sherlin finished with 693 career points, ranking him seventh all-time in Heritage history, while his 153 career 3-pointers tops the Generals’ record book. He finished his career shooting 33 percent from behind the arc.
“We sometimes forced him to take shots from some pretty deep spots on the floor and he still made one out of every three,” Terry said. “He’s a good shooter and I wish him nothing but the best. Hopefully he can be a key contributor for the Bobcats and help them improve.”
Bobcats head coach David Stephenson agreed.
“Cam is going to be a tremendous shooter for us,” he said. “We needed some shooters since we’re losing Tavish McReynolds, who is now out of eligibility. He can give us that deep threat from the outside.
“He’s also a tough kid that committed to us a long time ago. He has a family connection to the college so he’s very familiar with the campus and the program. We’re looking for very big things from him.”
Sherlin, the brother of former General Cody Sherlin and former Ringgold Tiger Nick Scott, said he is currently undecided on a major.
“They’ve taught me a lot throughout the years,” he added. “It’s good to have brothers that can do that for you.”
