Fort Scott's Sharp named All-KJCCC first teamer

Monday, March 19, 2012

Fort Scott Community College sophomore Jolee Sharp was the only Greyhound named to the All-Jayhawk Conference-Eastern Division women's basketball team this season. She was selected to the Eastern Division First Team.

Sharp, a graduate of Fort Scott High School, was named Jayhawk Conference Player of the Week twice and National Junior College Athletic Association Player of the Week once. She finished fourth in the conference (both divisions) and second among Eastern Division players in scoring, averaging 15.4 points per game. She led the conference in steals with an average of 4.4 per game and was fifth in field-goal percentage (51.0 percent), and eighth in blocked shots (1.19 per game). She was honored despite the fact that the Greyhounds finished last in the East with a 2-16 conference mark and finished 8-23 overall.

The other First Team players are sophomores Bri Kulas of division champion Johnson County, Chamiya Reaves of Labette, and Tiane Turner of Coffeyville and freshman Kathryn Thomas of Highland.

The Second Team is made up entirely of sophomores: Chynna Ramelb and Breanna Bryant of Cowley, Amy Briggs and Polly Harrington of Johnson County, Mikenna Greathouse of Kansas City and Diara Moore of Independence.

Honorable Mention choices were sophomores Rackell Goldson of Allen, Mary Pat Specht of Johnson County, Sharniece Lewis of Highland, Kamri Anderson of Independence and Autumn Zenon of Neosho County and freshman Courtney Waldner of Independence.

Ben Conrad of Johnson County, whose team will be the No. 2 seed in the NJCAA Division II National Tournament next week, was named the division's Coach of the Year. Thomas was named both Freshman of the Year and Most Valuable Player.

No Greyhounds were named to the men's All-Eastern Division team. Fort Scott finished in last place in the East, 1-17 in the division and 2-29 overall.

The entire First Team is made up of sophomores: Charles Hammork of division champ Coffeyville, De'Andre Upchurch from Highland, Dre Conner of Labette, Chris Patton of Neosho County and Justin Leathers from Division II National Tournament qualifier Johnson County.

The Second Team has Coffeyville's Dawson Cummings and Chadrack Lufile, Kansas City's Brandon Morris, Indy's Jamil Goodwin, and Cowley's James Milliken, the only freshman named at all.

Honorable Mention went to Indy's Christian Huffman and Bruce Adams, Neosho's Brison White, Allen's Terrell Shears and KCK's Duane Smith.

Coffeyville went on to lose to Barton County in the quarterfinals of the Region VI Tournament. Seward County won the Region and will represent the Jayhawk Conference in the Division I National Tournament next week at Hutchinson, Kan.
