Athlete Spotlight

Erin Jones

Erin JonesOne of the starters for this year's Scouts is Erin Jones. He is a 6'2" freshman who plays the guard position.

Jones went to Oak Park high school. He came to MCC-Penn Valley to get his skills ready for the next level.

He says, "I like the one-on-one help I get from the coaches. They challenge me to be better and want me to be a more vocal leader. Coach wants me to 'take the brakes off' and use my God-given talent to my advantage."

One of the reasons Jones came to MCC-Penn Valley was he was a fan when he was seven years old. His kids’ basketball team was named the Scouts and got their jerseys from Penn Valley. When he was ten, he went to a Scouts game.

Jones is studying business at Penn Valley.

2015-16 NJCAA District XIII championship trophy

Scouts Advance to Nationals Once Again

The MCC-Penn Valley Scouts rallied March 5 to bring home the 2015-16 NJCAA District XIII championship trophy.

The Scouts won at home 99-91 against the North Arkansas College Pioneers. Walter Sorrells led Penn Valley with 26 points and seven assists.

All three games played between the Scouts and the Pioneers this season were high-scoring affairs, with North Arkansas winning 99-92 in November and 96-92 in January. At the district matchup, though, the Scouts clinched victory to advance to the next round of postseason play.

The men’s Division II national tournament begins March 15 at Danville Area Community College in Danville, Ill.

For the Penn Valley men, this will be the eighth national appearance in 14 years under Coach Marcus Harvey. 
“I am very proud of our student-athletes and coaches for this accomplishment,” said MCC-Penn Valley President Joe Seabrooks. “They have shown tremendous grit in a season filled with adversity.”

He’s confident the men “will represent us well” at finals, Seabrooks added.

Division II championship seedings will be determined March 8.
