Four Lady Bobcats sign soccer scholarships

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) -

Four Jones County Junior College women’s soccer players are continuing their playing careers after signing senior college scholarships Thursday.

The signees included:

  • Carmin Childs (Oak Grove), a defender who signed to play for the inaugural women’s soccer team at Mississippi College for Women in Columbus
  • Mia Holmes (Brandon), a goalkeeper who signed with Christian Brothers University in Memphis, Tenn.
  • Judith Verdaguer (Barcelona, Spain), a forward who signed with Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, N.C.
  • Parker Welch (Brandon), a defender who signed with Delta State University in Cleveland

The quartet helped the Lady Bobcats win consecutive Mississippi Association of Community and Junior Colleges/Region 23 championships, posting a 24-5-2 record over the last two seasons.

“These girls have been outstanding,” JCJC coach Doris Deasley said in a release from the JCJC Sports Information Department. “We are losing four good ones, but they are going on to bigger and better things and that’s what we work hard on here. We get them for two years to develop them and get these kinds of opportunities at the four-year level.

“We are excited for each and every one of them. They have been fantastic the last two years and helped us to two state and region championships.”

A fifth Lady Bobcat, defender Angel Ryals (Brandon), signed with William Carey University after the fall semester.

    Currently, Lumberton High School senior safety C.K. Bowens acts as a de facto coach-on-the-field for Coach Zach Jones’ defense. And if Jones’ has his way, Bowens will become a coach on his staff some day in the future. “Somebody’s fired,” Jones said only half-kidding. “He has a job because I would hire him in a minute. He just has a way of getting his point across and people listen. He’s just a natural leader.”
