February 9, 2011: Congratulations to Bobby Grier for his selection as a member of the Capital One Academic All-district team. Bobby is one of only 16 basketball players selected out of our district that includes all of the NAIA and NCAA student athletes from Mississippi, Texas, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

Make plans to come out to Rugg Arena this Saturday, February 12, as the basketball teams take on William Carey University at 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm.
