FORMER CJC GOLFER WINS BELLSOUTH TOURNEY

 

MARIANNA--Former Chipola Junior College golfer Sammy Rachels won his first professional tournament on Sunday, June 3, more than 30 years after leaving Chipola.

Rachels beat defending champion Hale Irwin by shooting the best round of his career with a 9-under-par 63 to win the BellSouth Senior Classic by four strokes.

Rachels' purse of $240,000 was his biggest ever, and was more than he won in 10 years on the PGA Tour. Plagued with back problems since turning pro, Rachels had 11 top-10 finishes on the PGA Tour from 1975-85. The BellSouth was Rachels' ninth tourney on the Senior Tour since turning 50.

A Junior College All American, Rachels played at CJC in 1970-71. He was one of the top players on the Chipola squad that took second in the National Tournament in 1970, and third in 1971. His former CJC coach Jay Mitchell, who lives in Marianna, recalls Rachels as "a sharp guy who was always well prepared for the game." 

                Mitchell recalls that Rachels' father offered him a new car if he were to win the 1970 Bainbridge (GA) Invitational. "Sammy won it, and his dad bought him a brand new Camaro," said Mitchell.

                Chipola's golf program produced 11 All Americans and made it to the national tourney seven times, winning it in 1967. Mitchell, who also taught Physics at CJC, coached from1962 until the golf program was abandoned in 1977.

CHIPOLA'S BAUTISTA NAMED ARTHUR ASHE SPORTS SCHOLAR

 

MARIANNA—Former Chipola Junior College baseball player Jose Bautista was recently named an Arthur Ashe Sports Scholar by Black Issues in Higher Education magazine.

Student-athletes nominated for the award must compete in an intercollegiate sport; maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.2; and be active on their campuses or in their communities.

Bautista signed a deal May 19 to play professional baseball with the Pittsburgh Pirates just two weeks after graduating from Chipola. As a business major, Bautista maintained a 3.5 GPA. He also was active in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes.

Black Issues in Higher Education in 1992 established the Sports Scholars Award to honor undergraduate students of color who exemplify the standards set by tennis great Arthur Ashe Jr. In addition to athletic ability, students named Ashe Sports Scholars must exhibit academic excellence as well as community activism. A listing of the Ashe award winners is available on the web at www.blackissues.com

                Bautista led Chipola in homeruns with 15 and was fifth in the state in that category.  He finished the year with a .326 batting average including 15 doubles, 15 hr, and 47 RBI's, and 12 stolen bases. Bautista was also an effective pitcher with 16 appearances on the year and five saves. He was the winning pitcher in Chipola's 5-3 win over Okaloosa-Walton that gave the Indians the Panhandle Conference championship. He led Chipola to a second place finish in the State Tournament, and was named tournament MVP after pitching an entire nine-inning game in Chipola's 8-4 win over St. Pete in game three. He amassed a 7-1 pitching mark, striking out 25 batters in 33 1/3 innings, and chalking up a 2.43 ERA.

Prior to turning pro, Bautista had signed to play for the University of South Carolina.

CJC THEATRE COORDINATOR HITS BROADWAY'S TONY AWARDS

 

MARIANNA--For the past three years, Charles Sirmon, Theatre Coordinator at Chipola Junior College, has traveled at his own expense to Broadway’s biggest night, the Tony Awards at New York's Radio City Music Hall.

Sirmon said, “Being a part of Broadway has always been a dream of mine as a director and actor, and attending the Tonys seems to give me a small part of my dream." Sirmon was extremely excited about this year's Tonys due to the success of Mel Brook’s new hit musical, "The Producers" which goose-stepped into the record books with a show-stopping 12 Tony Awards beating out 1964’s "Hello Dolly."

Sirmon had the chance to attend a performance of the "The Producers" on Saturday, which is sold out until 2002. “I loved it; I thought it was great ‘old time’ theatre,” said Sirmon.

Sirmon was even lucky enough to attend an exclusive after-party where he rubbed elbows with the likes of Glen Close, three-time Tony winner Reba McEntire (now on Broadway in Annie Get Your Gun), Audra McDonald, Mathew Broderick and wife Sarah Jessica Parker. Sirmon even danced the night away with Linda Lavin, nominated for "The Tale of the Allergist’s Wife."

Sirmon said the highlight of the evening was meeting the two hottest guys on Broadway, Mel Brooks and Nathan Lane. Lane beat out co-star Mathew Broderick for Best Actor in a Musical. “Meeting Mr. Brooks and Nathan was a dream and I’m already making plans for next year!” said Sirmon.
