Former Bearcat standout Douglas earns all-conference honors at Cumberland

Cumberland guard Thomas Douglas, a former Rock Hill High School standout, earned 2007-08 All-TranSouth Conference honors.

The 6-foot junior was named to the TranSouth's first team by the league's coaches.

Douglas spent two years at Cleveland State (Tenn.) Community College before transferring to Cumberland.

Douglas is fourth in the conference in scoring at 16.3 points a game, 11th in field goal percentage at .456 and leads his teams in assists (3.7 apg).

The ex-Bearcat is one reason the Bulldogs have posted a 21-11 record and a 13-7 mark in the TranSouth.

• ANDERSON: The Lady Trojans softball team is 9-7, 2-0 in Conference Carolinas and is batting a combined .319.

Outfielder Elisa Sebastyan, out of Fort Mill, is doing her part for the Lady Trojans. A sophomore, she's batting .351 with two homers and 15 RBIs and has played in all 15 games.

• BREVARD: Junior outfielder Brice Warner has become somewhat of an iron man this baseball season.

Warner, a former Clover standout, is the only Tornados player to appear in all 23 games. The right-handed Warner is batting .231 with one homer and 11 RBIs.

The Tornados are 7-16.

• GUILFORD: Mat Stanley, who played at Northwestern, appeared in 10 games for Guilford this season as the Quakers rolled to a 24-5 record, 16-2 in the Old Dominion Conference.

A 6-1 junior guard, Stanley averaged 1.6 points and almost a rebound per game as the Quakers won their first-ever Old Dominion championship.

The Quakers lost in the opening round of the NCAA Division III Tournament to St. Mary's, 89-77.

Although the Quakers lost four seniors, including 6-11 Ben Strong, they return 10 lettermen, including Stanley, for the 2008-09 season.

• LENOIR-RHYNE: Bears infielder Hank Wofford, a former Clover star, is putting together an impressive season.

Wofford is batting .429, has stolen 15 bases in 17 attempts and has an on-base percentage of .487. He leads the South Atlantic Conference in sacrifice bunts with eight, is third in stolen bases and fourth in theft attempts.

The Bears are 15-16, 7-2 in the SAC.

• QUEENS: Royals freshman forward Markeisha Hicks was named to Conference Carolinas' honorable mention all-conference team.

The ex-Rock Hill standout averaged 11.7 points and 7.0 rebounds a game in her first season in college.

Hicks' twin sister and fellow freshman forward, Shakendra Hicks, also played for the Royals, averaging 3.4 points and 2.2 rebounds a game.

The Royals finished the season 9-19, 9-11 Conference Carolinas.

• WINGATE: Senior guard Sean Barnette closed out his basketball career last week with a sterling effort.

Barnette, a former Northwestern standout, had 20 points, 10 rebounds, eight assists and three steals in the Bulldogs' 78-65 loss to Augusta State in the NCAA Division II South Atlantic Regional Tournament.

Barnette ends his career as the SAC's all-time leading scorer with 2,324 points.

The Bulldogs, defending NCAA Division II South Atlantic Regional champions, ended the season 24-7. They won 49 games over the past two seasons.
