A Blue Mountain women’s basketball team player from Corinth has been named a 2017-18 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete.

Parrish Tice, of Corinth and a junior at Blue Mountain College, was one of the four women’s basketball team players who received the top distinction.

The scholar athlete program recognizes students who are juniors or above and have a 3.5 cumulative grade-point average or higher.

“Myself and our coaching staff are so proud of these four young ladies and their accomplishments,” BMC head coach Lavon Driskell said. “It is hard to be an athlete and still maintain academic standing in a rigorous course of study. These four have accomplished that goal in an outstanding fashion.”

The quartet has already been named to the Southern States Athletic Conference’s All-Academic Team, helping the Lady Toppers haul in 10 conference awards.

Along with Tice, the other scholar female basketball players were Lauren Ashley Collins of Cleveland, Miss.; Matavia Cox of Ripley; and Mallorie Sweat, Selmer, Tenn.
