2015-2016 AAAAAA Girl’s Basketball Champions

Ladies Basketball Champions

Class AAAAAA girls: McEachern 71, Tucker 51

by AJC.com

Make it three straight for the McEachern girls.
McEachern becomes the first school to win three straight championships in the state’s highest division since Collins Hill did it from 2005-07. The Indians have won state championships in four of the last five years.
“It feels really good. It’s a blessing,” said McEachern senior Jada Lewis. “I’m just happy that we won again. We deserve. We really had to work for this one. It wasn’t given to us. We just worked and we deserve our ring.”
The Indians (25-7) finished the season by winning their final 19 games. They were led by sophomore Chanel Wilson with 17 points, four rebounds and three assists. Que Morrison added 14 points and 11 rebounds and Lewis scored 12. Jasmine Clements had a game-high 13 rebounds.
“Unselfish. Very unselfish,” Lewis said. “We want each other to be successful.”

McEachern taps long history for first hall of fame class

by Carlton D. White
EMSS_rgbIMG_0460McEachern inducted its first athletic hall of fame class Thursday, singling out nine people who helped shape the school’s long athletic history as athletes, contributors, coaches and administrators.

The inaugural class featured Hensley “Trooper” Vansant Jr., Phil Davis, Joyce Harrell, J.T. Musgrove, Manny Provenzano, Ralph Williams, Patty Craven, Gordon Pritz and Christi Hames.

“Starting our athletic hall of fame has been a conversation among the elderly ones at McEachern for a long time,” quipped athletic director Jimmy Dorsey, who has been at the school since 1984, first as football coach. “Something would come up, and we would put it off for the next year. I’ve been here a long time, and every year is just one more year closer to retirement, so I wanted it up and running before my time came.

“I feel like this class is a great start, and it’s a great representation of people that make up this class. We wanted to go back and honor as many past contributors to the athletic department as possible, and I think we did that. And there’s plenty more in the pool to choose from.”

On Saturday, November 7, the Safe America Foundation and our partners will host the second annual Brain Camp at the Delta Flight Museum.

As a part of this fun-filled educational safety expo for middle and high school-aged youth and their parents, we’ve teamed up with Montlick & Associates to hold another Chalk 1 Up 4 Safety “Chalk-Off” art contest and we would like to invite your school or organization to participate.

 Chalk1

What’s Chalk 1 Up 4 Safety?

When teens talk to their friends about being safe, their voices can make a difference…especially when it comes to distracted driving, bullying or being safe online.

Chalk 1 Up 4 Safety, or #C1U4S, is a program created by Safe America to help encourage and empower teens to communicate with their peers, through the power of art, about important safety issues they face.

How Does The “Chalk-Off” Work?

Throughout the year, Safe America holds competitions where groups of teens (12 to 18 years old) compete head-to-head on behalf of their school or community group to see who can create the best “sidewalk art” emphasizing specific safety messages.

2015 Brain Camp “Chalk-Off” Details

  1. Register by November 04, 2015, to compete in the 2015 Brain Camp Chalk 1 Up 4 Safety “Chalk-Off”
  2. Join us at the Nov. 7 Brain Camp and create your best chalk-based artwork on one of the following themes:
    • IT CAN WAIT® for texing/driving
    • Be More Than A Bystander for bullying
    • Be #CyberSafe for an online safety message to convey the idea of protecting your virtual reputation
  3. The middle and high school-aged team with the best message and design will win $500 for their school or group, courtesy of our partners at Montlick & Associates.
