MCC picks up seven new faces

The Meridian Community College Lady Eagles ended the 2003-04 season with many questions about the future, and those questions may have been answered.
The Lady Eagles added four players to the roster along with three walk-on players to give MCC a new look for the upcoming season.
Courtney Wade was among the first to sign with MCC, and the former Meridian High School Lady Wildcat will bring a lot to the table next season. Wade joins the Lady Eagles after having a decorated career at Meridian High, leading the team in rebounds and scoring last season.
The second player to sign with the Lady Eagles was among one of the biggest steals of the signing period for MCC.
Stacey Tate was highly recruited by many different colleges, and the former Southeast Lauderdale star decided to stay close to home to begin her collegiate career at MCC. Tate led the Lady Tigers in scoring and steals, as Southeast made an appearance in the State Basketball tournament.
La Resha Marrow is the lone out-of-state player to be added to the roster this season and will look to make an immediate impact next season. Marrow comes to MCC from Athens, Ga., and will see some action at the guard position.
The most interesting addition to the MCC roster is a transfer from Arkansas Pine-Bluff which may fill a void left at the point guard position with the graduation of Stephanie Mosley.
Jasmine Lindsey will transfer to MCC after leading the SWAC in three-point shooting.
The biggest surprises has been three walk-on players that could easily play at any level but decided to play for the Lady Eagles next season.
Southeast's Shalonda Mitchell and LaShondra decided to stay close to home and play at MCC as walk-ons, and Ashly Lewis from Greene County High School also secured a walk-on spot.
