Campus abuzz during Career Fair

MOORHEAD – Mississippi Delta’s campus was buzzing April 16 with hundreds of students who attended its Career Fair.

The Career Fair was held in the Stanny Sanders Library on the Moorhead campus and displayed booths and information from 15 outside exhibitors ranging from industry to healthcare to the service sector and area universities. MDCC had over 20 Career-Technical exhibitors on hand along with 10 Health Science programs.

“The goals of the Career Fair were to encourage students’ career identity development by connecting their academic courses to workplace skills,” said MDCC Counselor Kate Failing. 

“This was also a great chance for students to interact with future employers.” 

In the past, MDCC has held several career fairs and opportunities for outside industries to display their employment opportunities to recruit students, but Failing said Dr. Edward Rice III, vice president of student services, decided it was time to bring that back and spearheaded the event. 

Students who participated were entered to win door prizes throughout the day. Sophia Roark was the Grand Prize Drawing with a “Dress for Success” clothing consultation and interview outfit from Abraham’s in Indianola.

The Mississippi Delta Community College baseball team has split three consecutive Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) doubleheaders after Wednesday’s double dip split with Meridian Community College in Moorhead.

The Trojans won game one, 12-11, in thrilling fashion, before falling 14-12 in the nightcap. MDCC trailed 11-8 heading into the ninth inning of game one, but a furious rally was capped off by a Will Godfrey (Columbus) walk-off double that plated two runs for the victory.

Mississippi Delta got 16 hits in the opener, led by Michael Allen (Canton), Godfrey, Dawson Ivey (Clarkdale), Tyler Jones (Columbus) and Dalton Lambre (Cleveland), who all had multiple hits apiece. Parker Caston (Cleveland) was fantastic in relief, allowing only three hits and one run over four innings, as well as picking up five strikeouts and walking only one to pick up the win in relief.

Despite an 8-run deficit in the fourth inning of game two, MDCC fought all the way back to tie the game at 12, before allowing two runs to cross late in the contest and allow MCC to come away with the 14-12 win. Jones and Matt McCurley (Brandon) each came through with two hits in the nightcap.

MDCC played East Central Community College on Saturday, March 31, and much like Wednesday’s games, won the first game and lost the second one. The Trojans claimed a 6-5 victory in game one on the strength of the pitching from Logan Clark (Cleveland), who went six innings and allowed only three runs to score to improve to 3-0 on the season. Carson Forrester (Columbus) earned his second save of the season with a scoreless ninth inning. Lambre led the way offensively with two hits.

Mississippi Delta traveled to Scooba to face East Mississippi Community College on Tuesday, March 27, and after winning 13-6 in game one, fell to the home standing Lions, 11-10, in the second contest.

Trey Jones (Olive Branch) earned the win on the hill in game one after finishing with nine strikeouts. Forrester recorded the last nine outs to earn the old-fashioned save.

Ivey and Lambre each had two hits to pace the offensive attack.

The Lions of East Miss mounted a furious rally in the second game to earn the split, but not before the Trojans made it a dogfight and took a two-run lead into the eighth inning. MDCC had 14 hits in the affair, as Allen, Godfrey, Lambre and Markarius Lee (Nesbit) each had two hits.

MDCC was scheduled to host Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College at 1 p.m. on Saturday in Moorhead, but due to the impending heavy rain forecasted for the Delta region on Friday and Saturday, the games were moved to Sunday at 1 p.m. in Moorhead.

The Mississippi Delta Community College baseball team opens Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges (MACJC) conference play on Wednesday when the Trojans welcome Northeast Mississippi Community College to Moorhead at 1 p.m.

Mississippi Delta currently sits at 8-8 overall after a week of Spring Break action that saw the Trojans go 2-2 on the week. MDCC defeated Rhodes College, 12-3 and 6-4, in a road doubleheader in Memphis on Wednesday. The Trojans then played the first two home games of the 2018 season on Thursday, hosting Southeastern (Iowa) Community College, but MDCC was not able to come away with a victory. Delta lost game one, 4-3, and game two, 7-1.

In game one against Rhodes, the Trojans were led on the hill by Trey Jones (Olive Branch) and Parker Caston (Cleveland), who got the win and the save on the mound, respectively. Jones went the first four innings before turning it over to Caston for the final nine outs.

MDCC was led on the offensive end by Parker Lane (Columbus), who had three hits and two RBI, as well as Dawson Ivey (Clarkdale), Tyler Jones (Columbus), Markarius Lee (Nesbit) and Devontae Rhodes (Greenville), who each had two hits in the opener. Ivey also led the way with four RBI.

Logan Clark (Cleveland) was the star of Wednesday’s nightcap versus Rhodes, as the freshman left-hander went six innings and allowed only two earned runs to move to 2-0 on the season. Brendan Painter (Hernando) earned his second save of the season after throwing a scoreless seventh inning.

Tyler Jones and Ty Riche (Brandon) each had two hits to pace the MDCC offense.

In Thursday’s home opener versus Southeastern, the Trojans could not offer up enough offensive support to get Korey Bell (Brentwood, Tenn.) the victory on the mound, as the hulking right-hander went six innings and allowed only two runs to cross, after striking out seven batters and allowing only one walk. Painter threw the seventh inning and allowed two runs to cross, thus taking the loss on the hill to fall to 0-2.

Rhodes led the way on offense in game two versus Southeastern, as the freshman outfielder/pitcher had two hits in the nightcap. Carson Forrester (Columbus) took the loss on the hill after starting the contest.

MDCC baseball fighting through weather

The Mississippi Delta Community College baseball program currently sits at 6-4 overall after battling with Mother Nature for most of the early part of the 2018 campaign.

The Trojans recently won one game and lost the other in a split doubleheader with Enterprise (Ala.) Community College and East Central Community College, respectively, on Saturday in Decatur. MDCC beat Enterprise in walk-off fashion in the nightcap, 4-3, after falling in the opener to EC, 8-4.

Carson Forrester (Columbus) earned the win on the mound in game two after going all seven innings and allowing only three runs to cross the plate. Tyler Jones (Columbus) scored the game-winning run on a passed ball, and Markarius Lee (Nesbit) was the offensive leader after collecting two hits.

In Saturday’s opener versus the home standing Warriors of East Central, it was Jones who led the way offensively, as the sophomore infielder/outfielder had three hits for MDCC. His offensive output alone was not enough to get Korey Bell (Brentwood, Tenn.) the victory on the mound, however, despite the redshirt freshman going seven innings and allowing only two earned runs to cross. Bell picked up the no-decision on the hill, while Trey Jones (Olive Branch) took the loss.

Mississippi Delta was scheduled to play on the road at Bevill State (Ala.) Community College on Tuesday, but the games were rained out, so the Trojans are still on the lookout for possible games on Thursday.

Regardless of if MDCC plays on Thursday or not, the Trojans will play another split doubleheader on Friday in Senatobia against Coahoma Community College at 11 a.m. and Northwest Community College at 2 p.m.
