Anibal Reinoso finishes 34th at Nationals
May 27, 2015

Ellsworth Community College Panther golf has had an amazing representative in Anibal Reinoso this year. He just finished an exciting weekend at the National Golf Tournament in Scottsboro, AL, May 19-22.

Reinoso qualified for Nationals by finishing 3rd at the Regional Tournament May 2-3 in Lake Panorama in Panora, IA. He played well on the first day, putting himself in a position to finish high if he had a successful second day; he shot a 75 and a 77.

“He kept his nerves in check, and he was able to finish third in the Regional Tournament,” says Head Golf Coach Nate Adams.

While at Nationals in Alabama, Reinoso had impressive scores of 76-69-77-75, putting him at a 34th place finish.

“Anibal represented Ellsworth well down in Alabama,” said Coach Adams. “There were a few bad shots, but it was a great learning experience for him. His effort shows that he is right there at the highest competitive level. I am excited to see what next year bring for Anibal.”

April 24, 2015

Ellsworth Community College baseball alumni Melvin Rodriguez (2012) has achieved amazing success with Jackson State University, where he continues his baseball career. His impressive DI stats: currently ranked 1st in batting average (.446); 5th in hits (66); 8th in runs batted in (47); tied for 1st in sacrifice flies (8); 7th in toughest to strike out (1 strike out every 21.1 at bats); and 9th in runs batted in per game.

Along with Rodriguez’s DI rankings he has received SWAC (Southwestern Athletic Conference) Co-Player of the Week in 2015, First Team All-SWAC in 2014, and 2015 Pre-Season Second Team All-Conference.

This season Jackson State went 4-1 with Rodriguez hitting .667 (12 hits in 18 at bats) with 2 home runs, 6 runs, 7 RBIs, and 0 strike-outs.

The team overcame a horrific accident during the 2014 season when its bus was destroyed in a fire on the way to a game. After the fire, the team bounced back to win the 2014 SWAC Tournament and qualify for a Regional Tournament just weeks later.

While he played with the ECC Panthers, Rodriguez was named ICCAC 2nd Team All-Region infielder in 2012. He is originally from Manati, Puerto Rico.

ECC women's basketball wins at home
February 16, 2015

The Ellsworth Community College women’s basketball team pulled off an exciting win when it hosted Southeastern Community College on Saturday, Feb. 14. The two teams fought back and forth the entire game, but the final score was 61-57 in favor of the Panthers.

The entire first half was close, with both teams going back and forth until Ellsworth was able to maintain a steady yet close lead for most of it. ECC ended the first half with a 31-28 lead.  

The second half was no different, with both teams exchanging baskets and lead changes in the very beginning. The Panthers were able to once again maintain a lead, although it always stayed in single digits. With less than 5 minutes to go, both teams continued to go basket for basket including multiple three pointers, but Southeastern was never able to close the gap. Ellsworth maintained its 4-point lead through the final few minutes of the game.

The Panthers were led by Keziah Lewis with 14 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists. Molly Greenfield had 12 points on 4 three-pointers, and Jordyn Lehman added 11 points and 6 rebounds. Chantelle Rumph and Ashley Gates also added 9 points each. SECC was held to just 34% shooting from the field overall.

ECC will be on the road for its next game against Kirkwood on Wednesday, Feb. 18, at 5:30 pm. The Panthers return home on Saturday, Feb. 21, to play NIACC with a 1 tip-off time.
