Three SFCC student athletes will participate in major all-star events this summer.
Roadrunners Joe Thomasson and Kevin Punter have been invited to play in the Mullen’s Top 100 Junior College Showcase July 12-14 in St. Charles.
“Jerry Mullen and his staff attend junior college games and jamborees throughout the year and evaluate the top freshman in the country,” said Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Thomas. “They put together a list of the top 100 rising sophomores, including Division I transfers. This is a pretty prestigious camp. Joe and Kevin were among the first 40 student athletes invited, which speaks highly of what they have accomplished here.”
Players are assigned to teams and will play in three or four games during the camp. About 250 to 300 coaches from four-year colleges and universities watch the games.
Lady Roadrunners sophomore guard Antoinette Taylor is one of 40 student athletes selected to participate in the fifth annual National Junior College Athletic Association Women’s Basketball Coaches’ Association All-Star Game July 25-28 in Niceville, Fla.
Coaches nominate players and a committee makes the selections. Athletes practice position-specific drills and will split into four teams to participate in a round-robin tournament.
“It’s a great opportunity for athletes to get exposure and play against some of the best players in the country,” said Lady Roadrunners Head Coach Kevin Bucher. “We are pleased Antoinette was selected and hope she has a great time.”
Taylor is the third Lady Roadrunner to be invited to the all-star weekend.
