JSU golf: Anderson eyes Walker Cup
When Tomasz Anderson hits the first tee at The Shoals later this week, his steely-eyed gaze will be focused on helping Jacksonville State win the Ohio Valley Conference men’s golf championship and make the NCAA Regionals. But in the back of his mind, there is another prize -- a reward, really, for a strong body of work. The long-range carrot dangling in front of the JSU junior is a spot on the 2015 Walker Cup team of Great Britain & Ireland.

JSU softball: Medlam pitches Georgia State past Gamecocks
It hasn’t been often a pitcher has held down Jacksonville State’s lineup this season, but it took a team throwing its ace in a midweek non-conference game to do it. Georgia State’s Kaitlyn Medlam held the best hitting team in the Ohio Valley Conference scoreless for five innings — just enough for her team to get a lead — then watched her teammates hit four homers in the seventh inning that was plenty to hold off a JSU comeback bid for a 10-6 win.

First-team offense makes statement in JSU spring game
Rashod Byers said going into it he wanted to see some big offense in Jacksonville State’s spring football game Saturday and quarterback Eli Jenkins gave the senior cornerback a face full of it right off the bat. On his first play from scrimmage, Jenkins found Anthony Johnson in single coverage with Byers and deposited a 35-yard touchdown pass into his grasp that set the White Team on its way to a 21-6 victory.

Having a facility as nice as JSU Stadium has its advantages, but there are times it just won’t do. Ever since the Jacksonville State football team returned from spring break it has had to practice in the stadium because the wave of rainy weather has left its practice fields behind Salls Hall too messy to use. The situation has left coach John Grass pining for some time on the natural stuff.
