GNTC’s Morrow Earns NJCAA Region All First-Team Honors

Williams, Cole On All-Second Team

February 23, 2012

(Rome, GA) – It’s not every day that a 5-foot-2 college sophomore sets the bar higher than the rest. The National Junior College Athletic Association has selected Georgia Northwestern point guard Mia Morrow as a member of their Region XVII All-First Team roster.

The Rome High School alum averaged ten points, six assists, and three steals a game during Georgia Northwestern’s 2011-12 women’s basketball season.  Morrow set a college record this season connecting on six three-pointers in a single game in a match-up with Toccoa Falls College just nine days ago.

Her best offensive outing of the season took place against Freewill Baptist College (TN). The Lady Cats co-captain rang up 23 points, had 10 assists, and five steals. “Mia is a phenomenal student-athlete and really deserves the honor,” said Georgia Northwestern Women’s Head Basketball Coach Jim Williams. “She really brings an x-factor the court that we can’t do without.”

Georgia Northwestern also had a pair of NJCAA Region XVII All-Second Team honorees. 5-foot-11 sophomore Jessica Williams from Cherry Log, Georgia and freshman shooting guard Emily Cole of Adairsville, Georgia. “Jessica and Emily are starting to gel together at just the right time,” said Williams. The inside-outside game they bring is one of the things we’ll need to have a chance in the post-season.”

At 2 p.m. Saturday, Georgia Northwestern will face Middle Georgia Tech for the NJCAA Region XVII title. The game will be played at Emory-Oxford College in Oxford, Georgia. The winner moves on to the NJCAA District Round. The site and opponent will be determined this weekend. The winner of Saturday’s game will play next on March 3.

The Lady Titans from Warner Robins, Georgia fell to the Cats on December 10 at The R.A.C. (Rossville Athletic Complex), 59-46. Middle Georgia would return the favor January 14 with a 22-point victory over Georgia Northwestern, 62-40.

(Northwest Georgia) – The Technical College System of Georgia Athletic Association has honored seven student-athletes on the Bobcat and Lady Cat collegiate basketball programs at Georgia Northwestern Technical College for their academic performance.

            To receive All-Academic honors from the TCSGAA conference, a student-athlete must be a full-time student in good standing with a minimum grade point average of 3.0. Members of GNTC Head Men’s Basketball Coach David Stephenson’s Bobcats who earned All-Academic honors for the 2010-11 season are Tres Jackson (Ringgold), Jesse Moore (Dade Co.), Ben Patton (Dade Co.), Kyle Wilson (Armuchee), and Matt Woods (Dade Co.).

            Jackson is a freshman enrolled in the Criminal Justice program. Moore is a sophomore enrolled in the Medical Assisting program. Wilson is a sophomore enrolled in the Early Childhood program. Woods is a freshman working towards entering the nursing program. Patton is freshman working towards entering the occupational therapy assistant program.

            “Jesse (Moore) and Kyle (Wilson) represented the college and their communities well over these past two years,” said Stephenson. “We are looking forward to what these rising sophomores will bring to the table, on and off the court next season.”

            Members of GNTC Head Women’s Basketball Coach Jim Williams’ Lady Cats who earned All-Academic honors for the 2010-11 season are Ashley Crosby (Calhoun), Mia Morrow (Rome), and Jessica Williams (Pepperell).  Crosby is a sophomore enrolled in the Dental Assisting program. Morrow is a freshman enrolled in the accounting program. Williams is a freshman enrolled in the Early Childhood program.

            “These women have faced a ton of hurdles this year,” said Williams. “Regardless, they found ways to succeed. I’m proud that we have team players that know what it takes to handle themselves with class during the game, as well as in the classroom.”

            The conference awarded All-Conference First Team honors for on-court performance in the 2010-11 season to Jesse Moore for the men’s program and Mia Morrow and Kayci McGee (Cedartown) for the women’s program. Earning All-Conference second team honors were Kyle Wilson for the men’s program and Shadow Day (Chattooga) and Kelsie Philpot (Rockmart) for the women’s program.

On May 25, the Bobcats will hold an open workout session for anyone interested in trying out for Men’s Basketball in 2011-12. It takes place at The R.A.C., Rossville Athletic Complex, at 2 p.m. Official men’s and women’s basketball tryouts for Georgia Northwestern will take place after the Fall Semester begins in August.
              In 2011-12, Georgia Northwestern will be competing for a chance at regional and national titles as official members of the NJCAA Region XVII in men’s and women’s basketball.
             “We are entering our fifth year of competitive varsity athletics and have really developed programs that have quickly become a destination for many of our area high school student-athletes who are ready for the next level,” said Stephenson. “Make no mistake about it, though. This college wants success for the student in the classroom above everything else. Athletics are simply a part of campus life for us. We want to rise to the top of our potential in competition. However, we want to see them cross the stage on graduation night above anything else.”
