Rachel Barrow on Monday became the first Lady Dragon softball player to win the McLemore Cup, given each year since 1961 to the sophomore player considered the most valuable from all sports at Paris Junior College.

Barrow was presented the award at the PJC sports assembly held Monday afternoon in the Hunt Center. Athletic Director Dr. Jim Moffitt, speaking at the assembly, pointed out that all five men’s and women’s sports teams qualified for post-season tournaments in NJCAA Region XIV.

“This has been an outstanding year for the PJC athletic program, and I commend the athletes and the coaches for all their effort,” he said.
