Lady Cards Use Record Performance To Advance At Nationals

The Trinity Valley women's basketball team entered the NJCAA national tournament with a full head of steam, and it showed today. The second-ranked Lady Cards today absolutely pounded Northeast Mississippi Community College in the first round 122-64. Six Lady Cards scored in double figures, with three scoring more than 20 points. Trinity Valley was lights out in the first half, shooting 62% from the field in jumping out to a 68-32 halftime lead. Simone Cooks led the way for the Lady Cards with 28 points. The 122 points scored by Trinity Valley set a new national tournament record, breaking the record 121 points scored by Westark Community College (Ark.) at the 1995 championship tournament. The win was Trinity Valley's 25th straight. They are now 31-1 on the season. Their only loss was on November 13, a 68-65 loss at the hands of Chipola Junior College. The Lady Cards now get a shot at redemption, because their opponent in the national quarterfinals is none other than the Chipola Lady Indians. That game is Wednesday night at 8pm.

    Stephen f. Austin head football coach Clint Conque paid a visit to the Rose City this afternoon. It's perfect timing to pump up the program, considering the Jacks are coming off a dramatic last second win over Incarnate Word. Put on by the alumni association, Conque was the featured speaker at a Lumberjack networking event. Coach Conque got to brag a little about SFA's first victory of the year.
