first_imgUWF Cross Country Concludes Fall Season With Awards Banquet UWF Women’s Cross Country Under 20 Club: (L-R) Kelbe Beck, Megan Steinocher, Stacy Paton, Karyssa Tourelle-Fallon, and Bailee Hedstrom Sharecenter_img PENSACOLA, Fla. – The West Florida men’s and women’s cross country teams wrapped up the fall season with an awards banquet this week.  The men’s squad concluded the year with a fourth place finish in the Gulf South Conference and a fifth place finish in the NCAA South Regional Championships, while the women’s team turned in a runner-up finish in the GSC and a sixth place finish in the region.Sophomore Bailee Hedstrom (Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla./Nease HS) and redshirt freshman Eddie Pagan (Stuart, Fla./South Fork HS) captured the Most Valuable Runner awards.  Hedstrom finished as the top Argonaut in every race she ran this year, and was the individual champion at the MC / Watson Ford Invitational in Clinton, Miss. on October 10th.   Hedstrom followed that up with an eighth place finish at the GSC Championships to earn first team All-GSC.Pagan posted the Argonauts’ fastest 8k time this past season with a 26:47 performance at the GSC Championships, finishing in the top 10 to also earn first team all-conference.  He was also the men’s team’s top finisher in the NCAA regional meet with a 10k time of 33:26, placing him 16th overall.For the women’s team, Megan Steinocher (Lawrenceville, Ga./Mill Creek HS) earned the Most Promising Freshman award as she was the overall winner in the Mississippi College Season opener 4k race and then earned second team All-GSC for her 20th place place finish at the conference championships.Meanwhile, freshman Donald Davis (Pensacola, Fla./Pine Forest HS) was the top finisher on the men’s side in two races this season, including an Individual title by winning the MC / Watson Ford Invitational in Clinton, Miss. in 27:27.  He was also the top Argo finisher in the Cal State Fullerton Season Opener with a 27:15 race time. His performances earned him the men’s team’s Most Promising Freshman.The Most Improved Runner awards were earned by sophomore Jared Black (Tallahassee, Fla./Leon HS) and walk-on freshman Danielle Cureton (Cumming, Ga./Forsyth Central HS).  Black was redshirted last season due to injuries and returned this season in great shape.  Black finished the season with two very strong performances, earning second team All-GSC with a 27:15 at the GSC Championships, followed by a 33:49 time for the NCAA regional 10k race.  Cureton did not have high school times that would be competitive at the collegiate level, however a personal best at the season opening tryout earned her a spot on the team.  Cureton then worked her way into the top seven on the team, with a season best of 21:28 for the Gulf Coast Stampede 5k event.The award honoring the most dedicated, most team-oriented runner was voted on by team members and called the Argo Award.  For the men’s squad, sophomore Christopher Hough (Panama City, Fla./Rutherford HS) earned the award, while for the women sophomore Kelbe Beck (Tallahassee, Fla./Lincoln HS) won the honor.  Hough was consistently a top seven runner for the Argos, and posted the second fastest 8k time with his 27:01 race time at the Gulf Coast Stampede.  That performance also earned him the GSC Runner of the Week.  Meanwhile, Beck may have been the most consistent runner on either squad as she was a top three finisher for UWF in all eight races during the season.  Her 19th place overall finish at the GSC championships earned her second team all-conference.The team leadership awards went to team captains Christopher Hough and Stacy Paton.“Chris and Stacy were an integral part of our team success and organization,” explained Head Coach John Bergen, “and they also coordinated the team in fundraising and community service activities, which in addition to our race day success, is a big part of how we evaluate our team success.  Each team began the year by competing in the Cal State Fullerton Season Opener in Los Angeles, which only came about due to the fundraising efforts of the two teams.”The final awards were for membership into the 27:20 club for the men’s team, and the Under 20 Club for the women’s team.  The 27:20 time for the men’s 8k distance and 20:00 for the women’s 5k event represent a time that is very competitive within the conference and region.  For the men’s team, Eddie Pagan (26:47), Christopher Hough (27:01), Jared Black (27:15), Donald Davis (27:15), and P.J. Orgass (27:16) joined the club with their 2009 performances.  For the women’s team, Bailee Hedstrom (18:37), Megan Steinocher (19:28), Kelbe Beck (19:47), Karyssa Tourelle-Fallon (19:48), and Stacy Paton (19:51) earned club membership for the 2009 season.“We had a successful season with both squads and it was very competitive for the awards,” said Bergen.  “Eddie (Pagan) and Bailee (Hedstrom) finished the season real strong and were clearly our most valuable runners in the big meets.  The most competitive award was the Most Promising Freshman Award, as both Donald (Davis) and Megan (Steinocher) just edged out a teammate.  I really liked our freshman classes this year, as Ben (Chastain) and Karyssa (Tourelle-Fallon) both finished every race they ran this year in the top five for the team.  To put them with Donald and Megan, each squad had two very competitive freshmen, who should be among the top runners in the conference next year.”Chastain and Tourelle-Fallon should be hungry for greater success next season, as each missed a major milestone award by mere seconds.  Chastain ran a 27:24 to narrowly miss the 27:20 club, while Tourelle-Fallon missed second team All-GSC by two seconds with her 21st place finish at the conference championships.The 2009 season success included two team victories for the women and one for the men, with two GSC runners of the week (Megan Steinocher and Bailee Hedstrom) for the women, and one (Christopher Hough) for the men.  Each team had one Individual race champion (Bailee Hedstrom and Donald Davis), both at the MC / Watson Ford Invitational.The Argonauts will compete in the spring during the non-competition season for cross country by racing in track meets.  The spring competition schedule will be released in January, and all event results can be found at www.GoArgos.com.

Former Bulldog Quay Evans arrested for shooting incident

first_imgFormer Mississippi State defensive lineman Quay Evans was arrested Monday night in Starkville.Former Mississippi State defensive lineman Quay Evans was arrested Monday night in Starkville.STARKVILLE — A shooting in March at a Starkville apartment complex led to the arrest of former Mississippi State football player Quay Evans on Tuesday.The Oktibbeha County Sheriff’s Department received a call at 10:40 p.m. on Saturday, March 21 that reported gun shots in the Aspen Heights apartment complex on Lamar Lane, according to a police report obtained by The Clarion-Ledger.The report states a witness claims to have seen several fights outside the complex. Once the fights broke up, the witness alleges Evans pulled out a gun and fired it into the air, which led to others also shooting into the air.A warrant was issued for Evans’ arrest and he was taken into custody on Tuesday, July 7.Evans played two seasons for Mississippi State before transferring to West Georgia in 2014. The former Dandy Dozen selection never played a game for the Wolves.Evans, a Morton native, arrived at Mississippi State in 2012 as one of the best high school players in the state.

He played in a total of 15 games in 2012 and 2013 and finished with 10 career tackles.The relationship between Evans and Mississippi State began to spoil in 2013 when MSU coach Dan Mullen suspended Evans indefinitely for violating team rules. During the suspension, Evans was arrested for driving without a license. He didn’t play in MSU’s final seven games.In early 2014, the school announced his transfer to West Georgia. Evans wound up back in Starkville, though.
