Alumni Came To Play

Alumni Women's Team
Our 2010 alumni basketball games are now in the history books. The evening started out with the traditional alumni women’s basketball game against the 2010 squad coached by first-year coach Melanee Halstead. The alumni team was represented by Jen (Groschel) Wilson (’04), Martelle Arnette (’06), Jessica Wiedeman (’06) and current CCC students Anna Lufkin, Casey Franklin, Katey Wells, and Brittany Leabhart. Kristen Herman (’06) coached the women’s team to a 24-29 half-time score, before the Cougars finished them off 63-48.

Alumni Men's Team
Our alumni men’s game was, however, a different story. Battling back from a 41-26 half-time deficit, the alumni came back within two points and had the ball in their hands. Jeremy Ham (’09), infamous for his great 3-point shots, offered up one with 10 seconds to go that would give the alumni the lead.

   Although it did not reach its mark, it did fall into the hands of Lonzo Saunders (’10) who, with an easy layup, could have tied the game, forcing probably one of the first overtime games in alumni basketball history. But his attempt fell short, and with a subsequent foul of CCC player Troy Hadlock, the Cougars claimed a 79-75 victory.

Among other alumni coming to the games were Mike (’04) and Bethany (Akins) Morgan (’05) and Darla Sarlo (’99). It was good to see Torrey (’05) and Angie (Nichols) Mullins who were able to come to their first alumni basketball game since graduation.
