KSHSAA HONORS ATHLETIC OFFICIALS FOR DEDICATION & SERVICE

Each year, the Kansas State High School Activities Association recognizes and honors a select group of contest officials for their dedication and service to Kansas interscholastic athletic programs. The KSHSAA Official Recognition program started in the 1999-2000 school year to honor officials who have contributed significant years of service. Each school year approximately 4,000 men and women, including some high school students, become KSHSAA registered athletic officials. The KSHSAA was pleased to recognize these special individuals for their years of study, preparation, sacrifice of personal time, and most of all, their enduring commitment to the schools and youth of Kansas.   50 years, Lyle Walter, Waterville. Larry Smart, Frankfort

Storm Women Outlast St. Clair 62-53, Earn First-Ever Victory At Nationals

Monique Stevens scored 15 points and Kindrea Poole added 13 to lead Southeast Community College to a 62-53 victory over St. Clair Community College of Michigan in a consolation bracket game at the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II National Tournament Wednesday afternoon.

The victory, SCC’s first ever at nationals, puts it into an 11 a.m. game Friday against either Lake Land or Lackawanna. Lake Land entered the tournament seeded 10th, while Lackawanna was the 15th seed. SCC is seeded No. 14.

The Storm led 28-22 at halftime behind Caitlin Madden’s 12 points and six rebounds. SCC led 31-24 early in the second half, but St. Clair went on an 8-0 run, taking a 32-31 lead with 15:26 left on a basket by 6-1 forward Teisha Knott.

Southeast regained the lead 37-33 with 13:41 to play. But at the 12:12 mark of the second half, Knott left the game after being injured in a scramble for the ball. She did not return.

Without her, St. Clair actually took the lead back 43-42 at the 9-minute mark, but Poole put back a missed shot at the 8:48 mark, was fouled and made the free throw to give the Storm a 45-43 lead they never relinquished.

Eleventh-seeded St. Clair got to within three points twice down the stretch, but SCC held on for the win.

SCC’s Mesha Phillips scored eight points, as did Shari Saunders off the bench. Madden and Poole each finished with nine rebounds. Madden scored all 12 of her points in the first half.

Heidi Highstreet led St. Clair with 16 points.

SCC won the turnover battle, committing 12 to St. Clair’s 25.

SCC Women’s Basketball Opens Play March 20 At National Tournament

Southeast Community College’s women’s basketball team is the first in program history to qualify for the national tournament.

Fresh off their 62-61 victory over Bismarck State College in the District F championship game Sunday, the 14th-seeded Storm will play No. 3-seeded Kirkwood Community College of Iowa at 9 a.m. Tuesday in the first round of the National Junior College Athletic Association Division II National Tournament at Illinois Central College in East Peoria.

An SCC victory would put the Storm into a second-round game at 6 p.m. Wednesday against the winner between sixth-seeded Kishwaukee and 11th-seeded St. Clair County. A loss would put SCC into the consolation bracket and a 3 p.m. Wednesday contest against the loser between Kishwaukee and St. Clair County.

Every game of the tournament will be streamed live on the Internet at www.njcaatv.ihigh.com.

SCC head coach Vicki Wooton was candid about her team’s chances to beat Kirkwood.

“We’re going to have to play our best game,” Wooton said. “We have nothing to lose and everything to gain.”

SCC, 21-5, got a career-high 32 points from guard Monique Stevens, including the game-winning basket, to defeat Bismarck State. Stevens, a 5-2 sophomore from Australia, made 11 of 23 field goal attempts, including 5-for-10 from 3-point range, and 5 of 6 free-throw attempts to lead SCC against the Mystics.

“And what most people don’t know is that she had the stomach flu,” Wooton said.

Stevens made two key plays for the Storm in the final 30.6 seconds of last Sunday’s game in Bismarck. With the Mystics leading 60-57 with 1:30 remaining, Stevens got the ball on the left wing and shot a 3-pointer. She missed, but she was fouled on the shot. Stevens made all three of her free throws to tie the game 60-60 with 30.6 seconds left. After Bismarck State made one of two free throws just three seconds later for a 61-60 lead, Stevens brought the ball up court for SCC, saw an open lane and took it all the way in from the right side for the game-winning basket.

Kirkwood, 30-2, has a storied history in women’s basketball, having won national titles in 1997, 2002, 2007, 2008, 2009, and 2010. Head coach Kim Muhl is in his 23rd season and has led Kirkwood to 20 regional finals and 14 national tournament appearances.

Wooton is familiar with the Eagles as SCC met the Cedar Rapids, Iowa, team in district championship games in 2008 and 2010.

“They’re not as good as they were the last two times we played them,” Wooton said. “They’re a very tall team, and they have a couple of good guards. But they certainly have the national tournament experience.”

Wooton hopes her guards can play an up-tempo game that “could give Kirkwood some trouble.”

“We’re obviously going to try to run on them,” she said.

Wooton doesn’t expect her team to be awestruck despite its first-ever trip to nationals.

“We’ve done pretty well wherever we’ve played,” Wooton said. “Opposing gyms don’t seem to put them in awe. We’re the Cinderella story.”

Wooton said everyone affiliated with the SCC program is looking forward to the national tournament.

“It’s just a great experience for us to go,” she said. “This has been one of the most enjoyable years to coach this team. These young ladies know why they’re here. They’re into taking care of business. They like each other. Team chemistry has been good.”
