Lady Indians Fall to Georgia Military in both games of double-header

The USC Salkehatchie Lady Indians fell twice to Georgia Military in a double header played in Allendale, South Carolina.

In game one, sophomore Cea Knox held the Lady Bulldogs scoreless striking out five batters through six innings.

However, in the top of the seventh, the Lady Bulldogs were able to get on the scoreboard after their lead-off batter hit a double off the center field wall. Their next batter got a sacrifice bunt to move the runner to third.

Knox, struck out the next batter but one batter later and the Lady Bulldogs drew first blood with a triple that scored the runner on third.

After retiring the next two batters, the Lady Indians came to the plate.

Jenna Nichols in her first college plate appearance struck out, leaving Aylssa Chambers and Cea Knox to get something going for the Lady Indians.

Chambers hit a double off the center field wall. Cea Knox who has been known for a strong bat, hit a deep ball that appeared to be headed out the ballpark, off the top of the wall scoring Chambers.

The Lady Indians were unable to bring Knox home and the score was 1-1 and we were headed to extra innings.

The Lady Bulldogs scored another run in the eighth and the Lady Indians were unable to respond. The final score was Georgia Military 2, USC Salkehatchie 1.

In game two it looked as we could be headed to another extra inning game but in the fourth inning, the Lady Bulldogs of Georgia Military scored three runs to take the lead.

The Lady Indians would respond in the fifth inning by scoring one run.
There would be no more scoring in the contest.

The final score was Georgia Military 3, USC Salkehatchie 1.

Wayne Baker Steps Down as Executive Director of NJCAA

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (January 23, 2009) - National Junior College Athletic Association Executive Director, Wayne Baker, has announced that he will resign from the position effective immediately due to personal reasons, capping a 24-year tenure with the organization that included five years as Executive Director.
"It has been my pleasure to spend the last 24 years of my life working on behalf of student-athletes within the NJCAA," said Baker on his stepping down. "More than anything else, I will miss the contact with the volunteers and friends that I have established within the organization. My sincere appreciation to those staff members that have worked to make the NJCAA the quality organization that it is today. A special thank you to Mary Ellen Leicht, a consummate employee and a better friend.

"Due to personal and health related reasons, I must move on to the next chapter in my life and also turn my attention to those that need me most right now, and that is my family. Once again, my sincere appreciation to all those individuals that have volunteered their service and time to make the NJCAA experience a memorable one for all involved."

As Executive Director, Baker helped lead the organization through many significant changes, including strengthening NJCAA eligibility standards, gender equity improvements and increased membership and student-athlete participation.

Baker became just the second Executive Director in NJCAA history in August of 2004 after serving 10 years as Associate Executive Director. His first position with the NJCAA was as Eligibility Administrator. In 1994 Baker was promoted to Associate Executive Director where he handled the day-to-day operations of the Men's Division.

NJCAA President Art Becker has named current Associate Executive Director Mary Ellen Leicht as the acting Executive Director. The organization will soon launch an official search committee to find a successor.
"I want to thank Wayne for his 24 years of loyal service to the NJCAA," said President Becker. "Under his direction the organization has prospered, growing in size and influence. His resignation leaves a significant void, however our Officers, Executive Committee and the NJCAA National Office staff will step up to meet this challenge. We all wish Wayne the best of luck in his future endeavors."

Historic day in America as President Obama takes office

I am aware this is a sports blog about USC Salkehatchie Indians athletics but today I witnessed something of historic proportions, I thought I would share with you.

As I drove to work today, I wondered if our youth really understood what today meant for all the men and women that had come before them.

My question was quickly answered once I arrived on campus and made my way down to the student lounge. I was shocked and in awe at the number of students that had gathered to witness this historical moment. As the ceremony began, I watched as one by one put down their phones and silence fell over the room. As, I looked around the room, some had tears in their eyes, while others sat in solemn silence as they took in President Obama's every word. The President's speech seemed to give the students hope for things to come in the future.

In these tough economic times, it gave me a hope to watch the students as they hung on his every word. I knew it would be these same young men and women that will one day lead our great nation. I then looked at our professors as they too took in the moment with a sense of pride at the number of students in attendance.

I am so proud of this great nation, I am proud to know that no matter how bad things get, we have youth in this country, like the ones that attend USC Salkehatchie to lead us into the future. I often speak about the athletes we have here at USC Salkehatchie but the everyday students are just as amazing. Many volunteer in the community through the Student Government Association, many work a part-time job, just to pay for their education.

So, today as the United States of America prepares to go forward with their 44th President in place, think of our youth. I ask you to think about another time in history were you can recall so many young people excited about the future of our great nation. As a nation we will survive, we will move forward and we will succeed and in the end, we can thank our youth, especially our students here at USC Salkehatchie for putting education first.

Indians 2-1 in Region X action!

The USC Salkehatchie Indians basketball team head coach Travis Garrett must feel as though the basketball god's are smiling down on his team. After having a rough first half in which his team won only 2-games, the Indians have won 4-games in a row and are 2-1 in Region X.

"I knew that once we got into region play things would get better. I have always scheduled tough non-conference games, it does nothing but make the team better, said Coach Travis Garrett.

It seems that Coach Garrett's formula is working as his team defeated Cape Fear CC last night 90-80 for his teams second region win in as many games.

The Indians will look to extend their winning ways this coming Monday night against Region X opponent Denmark Technical College.

It should be an exciting match-up with the two schools in such close proximity of one another.

Coach Garrett expects a large turnout for Monday's game, "We should have a large crowd on hand for this game. In the past it has been one of our larger crowds and the game is always one to watch."

Tip-off is scheduled for 7:00 pm.

Joe Winkelsas, set to speak at annual "First Pitch" dinner January 29th, gives candid interview.

Former USC Salkehatchie pitcher, Joe Winkelsas has seen it all since his days at the university. Winkelsas came to USC Salkehatchie from Buffalo, New York, straight out of high school back in 1992, nervous and not knowing what to expect.
“Here I was an 18-year old kid from the streets of west Buffalo; I thought that I knew everything and that I was as tough as they come. I soon learned that I wasn’t as tough as I had first thought. Coach Baxter at USC Salkehatchie taught me that I had to be both tough on the outside and mentally tough. I always tell everyone that USC Salkehatchie made me the man that I am today, with all the lessons I learned while attending,” said Winkelsas.

Winkelsas said that when he first came to USC Salkehatchie, he could have easily gone the wrong way. It was the love and support he received while attending the university that made the difference in his life.

Winkelsas said, “Back in New York, I was used to being on my own. I didn’t understand when I first came down that people wave at you all the time and actually care about one another. When I was in school, I studied in order to pass, so that I could play baseball. When I got to Salkehatchie, I had teachers that taught me how to study and I learned that an education would be the key to getting out of the wrong side of town.”

Winkelsas went on to say that he was shocked how people around the university would actually care about his well-being. It was all new to him but for the first time, he felt as though he was part of a family.
Despite leading junior college Division II in ERA as a sophomore, Winkelsas wasn’t drafted. Instead he went to Elon College to keep his dream of playing in the major-leagues alive.

Then in 1996, he thought all of his dreams had come true; he was given an opportunity by the Atlanta Braves as a free-agent. It wouldn’t be an easy road for Winkelsas as he would move around from one minor-league team to another for several years until 1999 when he would finally get the call.

It was April 10, 1999 against the Arizona Diamondbacks at Turner-Field. He lasted all of one-third of an inning. He gave up two runs on four hits and left with a 54.00 major-league ERA.

Winkelsas would pitch with the Braves farm system through the end of 2003, then he moved to the independent leagues. He caught the attention of the Chicago White Sox and was in their farm system until an arm injury cut his 2005 season short.

Winkelsas was out of work and out of ideas when he returned home to take a job as a garbage man. At first he looked at his job in a negative light, how had he come so far to such a low point in his life, when in fact this new job would be a blessing in disguise.

He firmly believes that the constant physical activity related to his job as a “trash man” as he calls it, tipping garbage cans and dragging them through the thick snow, helped heal his arm injury.

When he started to feel his arm come back to full strength, he served as pitching coach with Niagara University and was clocked in the low 90-mph range in an intra-squad game.

When the Milwaukee Brewers came through town in 2006 to take a look at some of his players at Niagara, Winkelsas accepted a dare from his players to try out. The dare turned into an invitation to the Milwaukee Brewers training camp in Arizona.

On May 23, 2006, Winkelsas was back in the show. He would make an appearance against the Cincinnati Reds, a scoreless third of an inning. He would remain with the Brewers until June 21, 2006.

On July 4 , 2006, he announced his retirement as he arm wouldn’t hold up for any more of those 90-MPH fastballs or so he thought.

Never one to give up, Winkelsas would give it one more try in 2007, combining to go 2-2, 3.00 in 19 outings between Double-A Mississippi and Triple-A Richmond in the Atlanta chain. He had a stretch of 26 scoreless innings, with more than half of those against White Sox affiliates. So the Sox took another chance on him and put him back in Charlotte, where he had previously pitched in 2004 and 2005. He retired from baseball in June of this year.

Joe Winkelsas will be the guest speaker on January 29, 2009 at the USC Salkehatchie annual “First Pitch Dinner” held to kick off the 2009 baseball season.

“I feel like my life has taken me in a complete circle, it will be great to return to USC Salkehatchie and maybe touch someone’s life. I can’t wait to get back down there and look around; I hope to see some of the people that touched my life. I have always had a special love for the people at Salkehatchie and no matter where baseball took me, I knew that I owed everything to the people at USC Salkehatchie and the surrounding area for helping me become the man that I am today,” said Winkelsas.

A new year is upon us and we at USC Salkehatchie would like to thank you for your support in 2008. We are looking forward to a great 2009, as our athletic programs continue to strive for a Region X title.

In the next few months, the USC Salkehatchie basketball team will be heading to the Region X tournament in hopes of finishing as the number one seed and then they could be off to Hutchinson, Kansas to the National JUCO tournament. Our baseball and softball programs will be in full swing, it will be a great time for USC Salkehatchie fans.

Again, thank you for all you do to make USC Salkehatchie athletics the best they can be!
