More happenings!!

- Meighan Simmons is doing her best P. Diddy impression because she "cant stop won't stop". As if earning co-MVP of the McDonald's All-American game in 15 minutes of play was not enough, she was recently invited to tryout for the United States 18u team. The military kid that she is has the opportunity to represent her country if she makes the team. Tryouts are June 8-11 and the actual games are June 23-27. Go get'em Meighan!

- As one door closes, another one opens. This old proverb tells the story of two SA kids and former teamates. When Wagner pg LenNique Brown chose USC over San Diego State last fall, the Aztec coaching staff asked Wagner coach Tina Camacho to keep them in mind if she knew of any good available point guards. Camacho coached a pretty good one a couple of years ago. Sajoyia Griffin helped lead the Thunderbirds to State a couple of years ago in a backcourt that featured Michelle Rodriguez and LenNique Brown. Both Brown and Rodriguez(UTA) are signed sealed and delivered to the D1 ranks. Add Griffin to that D1 mix as she just committed to San Diego State. Grifiin has apparently played well enough at South Plains JC that her skills warrant a stay in sunny Southern California next season. Camacho will have not one but two play makers in the Golden State next season. Congrats to Sajoyia!!!!
