Lee's German Named Player Of The Year

Lady Flames Open NCCAA Tournament Play Wednesday

Sunday, March 16, 2014
Hollie German was named the NCCAA Mid-East Region Player of the Year on Saturday evening. The senior will move into the NCCAA National Tournament with 2,236 points, just 35 points short of the career scoring record currently held by Vikki Clemmons.

German was joined on the All-Region team by teammate Jenna Adams. Amy Philamlee and LaTesa McLaughlin (Union) were joined on the five-member squad by Tequila McNeal (Bluefield College). Rachel Lockhart was listed as a member of the All-Region second team.
German, Adams and Lockhart were also named to the Mid-East Region All-Tournament team.

The Lady Flames will be the No. 1 seed in the NCCAA National Championship which begins Wednesday at Grace College (Winona Lake, Ind.). In fact, Lee will face the host Grace team in the opening round on Wednesday at 4:15 EDT.

Union is the tournament's No. 2 seed. In fact, four former NAIA powerhouses that are in the transitional stage to NCAA Division II, will be represented in the eight-team field. If Lee survives the opener against Grace, they will likely be pitted against Oklahoma Christian, while Azusa Pacific is in the same bracket with Union.

"It is a very strong field and certainly a tournament that our deserving young ladies would love to bring Lee's third NCCAA women's national basketball championship back to Cleveland," said coach Marty Rowe. "We will depart Cleveland on Monday morning and the banquet is planned for Tuesday evening."

Problems With The Proposed Apartments In Lookout Valley

I am deeply troubled at the way in which this proposal has been handled. The blatant disregard for the residents of Kelly's Ferry Road and the wishes of the Lookout Valley Area Plan (which was adopted by the city in 2003) by Chip Henderson and Tommy Austin amazes me. Yes, there was a meeting of the Lookout Valley Neighborhood association in August, but it wasn't on its normal ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Already, 248 Mass Shootings

There is not a word – not one – that I can use to respond to Dr. Loretta P. Prater, whose letter in Chattanoogan.com just condemned the idea that proposed volunteers in the Chattanooga Police Department be armed. Dr. Pater signed her letter, “Mother of Homicide Victim Leslie Vaughn Prater” and I’ve no doubt there is nothing in this world that will assuage the lifelong horror she ... (click for more)
