MCC January 2018 Student-Athlete: Lacey Gardner


Congratulations to Lacey Gardner earning the MCC Student-Athlete of the Month honor for January.  The Spring Grove resident was homeschooled and is a freshman for our Women’s Basketball Team. 

Lacey is a 5’11 forward/center for the 2017-18 Scots this winter.  The team currently leads the conference with a 7-1 record and 17-7 overall.  It is one of the best starts for the program in 12 years.  “Lacey has been a played an integral part in this season’s success.  She is averaging 14ppg and 9.5 reb/g and remains a steady part of our defense in the paint as well averaging 2 blocks/g.  Lacey shows a great desire to learn, grow and improve for our team’s success.  She brings a great work ethic and maturity to our team.  I think she has just begun to tap into her true talents,” lauds Head Coach Karen Wiley. 

“Lacey has also represented the department with wonderful focus, attention and excellence in the classroom.  She is on track to be named to the ISCC All-Academic team.  We are proud of the high caliber area student-athletes who have chosen to be part of our programs, adds Director of Athletics Karen Wiley.

Love Is Stronger Than Hate: Chris Singleton


Chris Singleton is on a journey with more twists and turns than a roller coaster at Disney World. In three short years, Chris has gone from Goose Creek SC to the Chicago Cubs affiliate Eugene Emeralds. In between he lost his beloved mother, Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, in a heinous church massacre and his dad, Chris Sr, to a broken heart and got engaged to his sweetheart Mariana who blessed Chris with a baby son, Chris Jr. Wow!

Chris, Mariana, his fiance, and young Chris Jr will all be in Chicago for the CSA 2017 Awards dinner. Chris will be honored with the Charlie Donovan Memorial “Passion for the Game” award. God bless them. Listen to our interview:
