  Culberson academic all-conference
Monitor Staff Reports
TORRINGTON, Wyo.–Former Kemp High School standout Jacarri Culberson received Academic All-Conference honors from the Wyoming Community College Athletic Conference (WCCAC) following the conclusion of the 2008-09 basketball season.
As a freshman on the Eastern Wyoming College basketball team, Culberson struggled with injuries all season, limiting his contribution to the Lancers, head coach Casey Jones reported.
“However, he has been a very impressive student athlete and wonderful young man in the community of Torrington,” Jones said.
Culberson earned a 3.36 GPA in his freshman year, qualifying him for Academic All-Conference honors. The WCCAC is made up of eight colleges in the state.
Culberson was presented with a certificate marking his achievements during the annual Lancer Sports Banquet May 2.
“Jacarri has been a great young man, and his friends and family from Texas should be very proud of him,” Jones said.
At KHS, the 6-5 Culberson was a four-year all-district player, helping lead the Yellowjackets to the Region II tournament as a senior while forging a four-year unbeaten streak at home in district play.

ATHENS–Fifteen newcomers, including two from the Cedar Creek Lake area, will join 10 veterans on the Trinity Valley Community College (TVCC) cheerleading squad during the 2009-10 school year.
Freshmen selected to the squad were Marquise Shepherd (Malakoff); Mandy Hibbs (Kemp); Britney Rogers (Terrell); Alex Chavez (Las Vegas, Nev.); Amanda Chen (Indianapolis, Ind.); Katy Dupis (Plano); Chris Franklin (Austin, Ind.); Jordon Howser (Scottsburg, Ind.); Demarcus Johnson (Indianapolis, Ind.); Traes Malbrough (Beaumont); Alyssa Massaro (Henderson, Nev.); Russell Pisarczyk (Indianapolis, Ind.); Travon Simmons (Noblesville, Ind.); Jacques Wilhoite (Noblesville, Ind.) and Katie Sargent (Mesquite), who will be the mascot.

“I am very excited about this group. I went with more general skill level this year, compared to the past,” TVCC cheerleading coach Lucy Strom said.
“The team will consist of a well rounded cheerleader, instead of one who is elite at just one thing,” Strom added. “In other words, they are able to do it all.
“I feel we are keeping up with the times with this change, and they make a better game day cheerleader as well,” she said.
TVCC has won nine national cheerleading championships and recently finished second in national competition at Daytona Beach, Fla.
