Christmas fire destroys home

By Kevin Green

A Wilbur Dam residence was destroyed by fire Christmas afternoon leaving a couple and three children with no home. When Elizabethton couple, Brian Carden and Cricket Crawford, returned their home at 410 Wilbur Dam Road, after celebrating the Christmas

season with friends and family, the flashing red lights they seen surrounding their house were not of the festive kind. The lights they saw were from the several fire trucks and emergency vehicles that had been dispatched to their home around 3 p.m. According to reports, a nearby relative

reported the blaze after smelling smoke coming from the residence. Although the Carter County Sheriff’s Department is still investigating, the cause of the fire is suspected to have been an electrical outlet in the main hallway where most of the damage was centered and spread first inside the walls of the

Elizabethton man plead guilty to third DUI

Police seeking help from local residents regarding recent spate of burglaries

By Michael Frazier

By Kevin Green

According to an Elizabethton Police report James Lynn Cox, age 28, of 809 Tipton Street, Elizabethton was arrested on DUI charges, driving on revoked license, and resisting arrest. Cox was arrested after Officer Douglas Combs of the Elizabethton Police Department reported seeing Cox driving over a speed bump at high speed. Once Combs stopped Cox, he noticed Cox had glassy, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech. After arresting Cox, he reversed his handcuffs from behind to in front of him. After correcting the handcuffs, he said Cox refused an order not to reverse them again. Pepper spray was used to control Cox.

The Elizabethton Police Department is currently investigating nine residential burglaries that have plagued the city since early December. According to a report released by the EPD, the burglaries seem to occur in the early afternoons after residents have left for periods of time. The first burglary occurred at a residence on East K

In general session court this week Cox pled guilty to a third offense of driving under the influence, a second offense of driving on a revoked license and a count of an implied consent violation. Cox was sentenced to 170 days of all charges combined and court costs and fines of $1,225.

As children, we would always go to the Christmas Eve Service the Yellow Mountain Baptist Church. Each year, a little girl named Sara would sing, “The Little Drummer Boy.” But, I must confess that EVERY time I hear that song, I think of Sara, and the last time she sang that song. Love her heart, she had a cold. Instead of RumpaPum-Pum, she could only sing Rupa-pub-pub. I have to sing it “Sara style” sometimes because it makes me giggle and think about how much I miss those days. During the Christmas Eve Service, and after the nasally rendition of “The Little Drummer Boy,” the kids would put on a Nativity play and dress up with home-made costumes of angels, shepherds and animals made from cardboard. It sounds silly I suppose, but I miss those days. Then after the rest of the church would hold candles and sing carols announcing the birth of Christ, Santa

From Chaplain Ron

"Take no thought for tomorrow!" Thats Gods idea! The same God said, "you don't go to war, without first, counting the cost." That war, can be literal, among Nations, but the most immediate application to you and me, is the struggles of life. There are many decisions we make, that should be given necessary consideration, so that we don't take on more than we can handle. We will see that there is no contradiction, between counting the cost, and taking no thought for tomorrow. Every individual, has within them, memories of the past, and dreams, and hopes, for the future, but the sum total of their living, is done TODAY. Every decision we make today, requires us to count the cost, and decide whether or not, we are able to pay the required price, or whether or not we even want to pay the price required. We should not limit our possibilities, by the past, nor by what might happen tomorrow, but rather by what we are willing to do today, in response to the decisions we make, because, after all, life is lived today. What God is saying is, don't let guilt from the past, nor fear of tomorrow, cause you to fail to live today.

Aunt Bertha's House

Uncle Will opened the door Because I let some cooking, scorch As he came back in, he said, "Look what I found on the porch." It was a basket of fruit and candy With a card and even much more; When we opened the card, we discovered It was from the nice neighbors next door. In the basket, they had placed a CD With the most beautiful musical sound Some of the prettiest Christmas music That ever could be found. I thank God for my good neighbors Not everyone is so blessed I always tell everyone That these neighbors are the best. Later that night, as we lay in our beds And listened to fireworks being hurled We knew that God was in His Heaven And that all was right with the world. KEEP YOUR EYE ON THE EASTERN SKY JESUS IS COMING BACK SOON ARE YOU READY FOR HIS RETURN? Bye now, until next time, Aunt Bertha Send emails to:

Christmas Past

would come through the church with a sack full of brown bags. The brown bags!! Yes! That's what we waited for! Candy, nuts, oranges, apples, candy canes and sometimes a little toy of sorts. I can smell those bags now. I love familiar smells. When we would all get back to our grandparent's home, we would dump our bags and begin sorting our goodies and trading this for that – sort of like we used to do on Halloween. Christmas, of course, was always different. It was special. We got to see a lot of our family sometimes that would come back here from WA. One Christmas, there were so many family members in the house that most of the kids had to sleep in the floor. Some of us – my sister and several cousins – slept under the kitchen table because we ran of beds and floor elsewhere. That specific night, snow was coming down quickly, the wind was howling and the power went out. It was cold in that old house. The five of us under the table all snuggled together under about eight blankets. We could still see our breathe when we breathed. It was miserable, yet fun at the same time. We laughed and sang Christmas songs and talked about the Bible story we knew about Jesus' birth. At midnight, we yelled, “Happy Birthday, Jesus!” I'm sure although the adults appreciated our wisdom of the Bible, they promptly told us to be quiet if we wanted to make it to see any gifts we might receive in honor of His birth! We decided then that we'd settle down. That was one of my favorite Christmas memories as a child. As an adult, my favorite time was the birth of my daughter on Christmas Eve 15 years ago. It's hard to believe the beautiful young lady she has become. Christmas first and foremost is about the birth of our Savior, but for 15 years I have also celebrated the birth of an 8 lb. 13 oz baby girl with long dark hair and bright blue eyes. I have been blessed time and time again. I pray you all have a wonderful 2011 and if you decide to make those New Year Resolutions, I hope you keep them for a good while. I suppose I'll keep living day-to-day and do the best I can. Thank you for reading. Til next time, Kate

Carter County Sheriff’s Department is searching for driver of crashed stolen vehicle

Carter County Mayor Leon Humphrey, left, is pictured at the Dec. 20 meeting of the Carter County Commission presenting a plaque to Gena Hibberts of Mountain City in recognition of her being named 2010 Student of the Year at the Tennessee Technology Center at Elizabethton and runner up in the statewide Student of the Year competition sponsored by the Tennessee Board of Regents. During the selection process, students delivered a speech before a judge’s panel to describe how technical education impacted their life. Ms. Hibberts enrolled in the practical nursing training

program at TTC-Elizabethton after she and her husband became displaced workers on the same day when their employer in Mountain City closed its plant. During the presentation, Mayor Humphreys read an excerpt from a letter written by Ms. Hibberts’ daughter, Hannah Garland, pictured next to her mother, in which she described her mother as an excellent parent and mentor. Also pictured, from left, are her son Brandon Scott, husband Brett Hibberts, and daughters Alyssa Scott and Emilee Scott. Ms. Hibberts, who graduated from the 12month practical nursing program at TTC-Eliza-

bethton in August of 2010, desires to continue her education to become a Registered Nurse. “The financial hardship on my family will turn into a better tomorrow in helping my family fulfill our dreams due to the opportunities that technical education provides,” Ms. Hibberts said. In 2010, TTC-Elizabethton graduates had a 94.2 percent licensure rate on the Tennessee Board of Nursing examination to become a Licensed Practical Nurse and a 91 percent placement rate. There were 141 practical nursing graduates at TTC-Elizabethton in 2010.

food of this family run restaurant. According Tony Wilson, one of the owners, the term “Creekers” denotes any person who is a resident of Stoney Creek. Creekers is owned by Wilson and Dave Tester. Together they have won numerous barbeque competitions and the trophies attesting to stand proudly on a wall in the store. Patrons will find the spicy sweet and slightly tangy Tennessee traditional Stoney Creek sauce a sheer delight, but they are sure to be secretly torn by the Memphis style Gap Creek sauce or the vinegar and mustard based Carolina tasty, Jacobs Creek.

the best tea ever. Creeker’s tea is more than the sweetened brown colored sugar water you get at most restaurants. It is fantastic. The portions of hot sliced or pulled pork and beef are huge, and so are the orders of home fries cut fresh each day. Creeker’s menu is replete with items that are made fresh. All of the sauces are prepared each day as well as the coleslaw, beans, and Vidalia onion rings. There is even the great kid pleaser, mac-n-cheese, which is

served hot with lots of cheese. The always favorite side of barbeque beans comes in a generous bowl. T h o s e wanting something smokier should try the ‘burnt ends’, which is brisket that has been slow smoked for over 28 hours and served with sauce. Baby back ribs are served on Friday and Saturdays only while they last. Creekers will also cater church, school and company parties and other events. A week’s notice is requested for all catering events. The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday 11am to 8 pm and closed on Sundays. Lunch specials start at 11am to 2 pm.

Milligan ADCP program helped grad achieve longtime career goal

When Dale Blevins learned the Carter County Emergency 911 Communications District was hiring a new director earlier this year, he knew he had the work experience the position required. But there was one more qualification Blevins needed in order to secure himself as the front-runner for the job. “I needed to finish my college degree,” said Blevins, who worked as a paramedic and later as a full-time dispatcher at Carter County 911. “I had gone as high as I could go without completing my education.” Blevins reached that milestone when he completed his bachelor’s degree in business administration through Milligan College’s adult degree completion (ADCP) program. The 38-year-old proudly received his diploma in front of family and friends on Dec. 10, at Milligan’s commencement ceremony. The day was also a realization of another important goal Blevins set for himself — in May he was hired as director of Carter County 911. “I would not have the job without my degree from Milligan,” Blevins said. “My new position is the equivalent to running a business. We are providing 911 service, and there are budgeting and other day-to-day business decisions that I make. Not a day goes by that I don’t use something I learned in my classes at Milligan.” Like many working adults, Blevins’ busy family and job responsibilities were important factors in his decision to go back to school. “I am married and have two boys, ages 8 and 12, so my schedule is very busy,” Blevins said. “But I also knew I needed to do something to earn more money for my family. A friend encouraged me to check into the ADCP business program at Milligan. I liked it because it accommodated my schedule and it was a good timeframe to finish my degree.” Milligan’s degree completion program in business administration allows adults to

conveniently earn their degree while working full time. The program is only 16 months of class time, and students take just one course at a time for five weeks. The classes meet one evening per week. “It was perfect for me because I didn’t have to sacrifice as much to earn my degree,” Blevins said. “The professors were excellent and helped in any way they could, and the topics are topics you use every day in business.” Milligan also offers a support team in its Office of Graduate and Professional Studies, which works with ADCP students to develop a degree plan to make the most of their time and money. “Our ADCP students have similar priorities — family, jobs, civic responsibilities and of course, that goal to complete their degree,” said Milton Carter, director of adult degree completion programs at Milligan. “We have many students like Dale, who not only earn a degree here, but are also able to achieve an important career goal because of their Milligan education.” At a time of year when people are thinking about New Year’s resolutions and possible changes in their careers for 2011, Blevins is thankful for the direction his life has taken in 2010. “I would encourage other working adults who are even thinking about going back to school to take that step,” Blevins said. “I am so glad I did.” Milligan is currently accepting applications for its February 2011 ADCP business administration cohort.

Cyclones eke out a 63-55 Patriot Basketball Recap victory over Tennessee High By Mark Proffitt Sullivan East Wins in Shootout with Longhorns

December 10, 2010 – The Patriots rebounded after a disappointing loss to Elizabethton earlier in the week taking Johnson County to task in a Three Rivers Conference shootout Friday night in Bluff City. The Patriots topped the Longhorns by a score of 67-56. Ian Ollis was top scorer for the Patriots with 23, while team mate David Casaday had 16 for the night. The Longhorn’s Jason Steele had a team high 22.

In a hard fought battle Thursday night, Elizabethton Lady Cyclones sent the Lady Vikings packing on their own home turf during the 13th Annual "Doc" Maples Holiday Hoops Invitational. The win did not come easy for the Cyclones. They trailed the Vikings 25-12 early in the second quarter, and faced down imminent defeat with a 51-47 gap with only five minutes left to play in the final. It looked like the game was a wrap and loss when suddenly the Cyclones began to capitalize off of Viking turnovers on four of five possessions. Cyclone's Cara Bowling scored on a stick back and a 3-pointer while fellow teammate senior Chelsea Bowling converted a three-point play, lifting Elizabethton to a 55-51 edge with 3:20 on the clock.

Hampton Bulldogs crush Wasilla 58-44 in Arby’s Classic

By Joe Sluder

After a more than 20 year absence from the annual showcase, the Hampton Bulldogs made their presence felt again after defeating the team from Wasilla, Alaska. The Bulldogs hammered out an early first quarter lead that left the far away team far behind. This was in large part thanks to the huge contribution of teammate Dylan Ward who would send the ball to the net for 10 points of the 14 to 1 lead at the first. Photos By TriCities Captured

December 17, 2010 – Trailing in late in the game, the Patriots got a key defensive steal from Preston Dishner resulting in a Garrett Carter layup to tie the score, and David Casaday snagged an offensive rebound before feeding Ian Ollis for the go ahead layup, as the Patriots edged the Trojans 40-39. Chance Davis led East and all scorers with 14, while Carter put in 11, Ian Ollis added 6, and Casaday tossed in 9. Andrew Lee tallied a team best 10 points for the Trojans.

Photos By Mark Proffitt December 18, 2010 – Sullivan East looked to its versatile post and wing players Ian Ollis and Chance Davis who combined for 44 of East’s points in the 63-51 win over the Unaka Rangers in the second day of the FCA Doubleheader games in Bluff City. Davis poured in 23 points and Ollis put in 21, while Preston Dishner scored 5, and David Casaday added 9. Also scoring for the Patriots include Logan Jordan with 3, and Garrett Carter and Daniel Truett getting 1 each. Justin Nave led the Rangers with 22. East Let Rebels Snatch First Win December 21, 2010 – The Patriots struggled generating any offense late in the game with Sullivan South on their home court who responded with strong inside play, getting their first win of the season by a score of 45-39. Chance Davis still managed 19, and Preston Dishner scored 9 for the Patriots. South post player Hunter Harmon led his team with 13.


Player Of The Week Hampton led 18-8 after the first quarter, and pushed its lead to 2915 midway through the second period. However, the Warriors battled back to within three points at 39-36 with 1:13 left in the third quarter. Jacob Jones, who struggled through a tough night, smacked a triple which pushed the Bulldogs’ lead back to five points. Then, just before the bell sounded, Ward laid up bucket to make it 43-36 before the beginning of the final. Hampton then scored the first seven points of the fourth quarter to stretch out a 50-36 gap. The Alaskan team could not catch up or shut down the Hampton defense.

Strong shooting, balanced scoring lift Lady Bucs past Holy Cross, 90-68

Four Lady Bucs scored in double figures and ETSU shot a season-high 54-percent from the field as the Blue and Gold stormed past Holy Cross 90-68 Tuesday evening in the first game of the Marriott Cavalier Classic inside Virginia’s John Paul Jones Arena. Freshman Destiny Mitchell (Bluffton, Ga.) paced the Lady Bucs as she poured in 20, while Natalie Pickwell (Kingsport, Tenn.) scored 16 of her 18 points in the first half. Mitchell, who shot 9-of14, also pulled down six rebounds, dished out four assists and forced two steals in 25 minutes of work. Meanwhile, senior point guard Tara Davis (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) finished with 16 points, six assists and four rebounds. Rounding out the scoring attack was red-shirt senior post Latisha Belcher’s (Martinsville, Va.) 11-point performance. With the win, ETSU improved to 4-6 on the year, while Holy Cross dipped to 4-8. The first half was a game of runs, but the Lady Bucs were able to record the largest spurt and led by eight at the break, 45-37. Holy Cross came out on fire as the Crusaders hit their first three shots and took an early 9-2 lead after Alex Smith knocked down the team’s second three-pointer of the contest with only one minute, six seconds coming off the clock. Fortunately, the Lady Bucs finally found their groove as they mounted a 23-5 run over the next 7 minutes, 33 seconds, and ETSU led 25-14 after Gwen Washington (Manassas, Va.) capped off the spurt with a lay-up at the 11:21 mark.

The Lady Bucs were able to extend their lead to 14 after Mitchell found Iesha Robinson (Martinsburg, W. Va.) open for an easy bucket, but the Crusaders pulled to within seven, 43-36, when Smith drained her fourth threepointer of the half with less than a minute to play. ETSU took advantage of some hot shooting in the opening 20 minutes as the Lady Bucs nearly shot 60 percent (2034) – and after making their first three attempts of the game – Holy Cross cooled off as the Crusaders shot 41.9 percent (13-31). Most of the scoring came from Pickwell as she shot 7-of-10 and led all scorers with 16 points at the half. The three-point shot kept Holy Cross in the contest as the Crusaders hit six from long range, while the Lady Bucs were 3-for-7. ETSU dominated Holy Cross in the paint by outscoring the Crusaders 22-8, and the Lady Bucs turned five offensive rebounds into six second-chance points. The Lady Bucs’ shooting surge carried over to the second half as ETSU connected on nine of its first 16 attempts and extended the lead to 18, 65-47, thanks to a Jasmine McIntosh (Bowie, Md.) jumper with 13:27 left in the contest. From there, Holy Cross managed to make it a 13-point contest at the midway point of the second half, but the Lady Bucs held the Crusaders to nine points in the final 8 minutes, 59 seconds of the contest and ETSU walked away with the 22-point victory. For the game, the Lady Bucs made a season-best 38 field goals (70 attempts), while Holy Cross shot 35.3 percent (24-68). ETSU also dished out a season-high 17 assists, while out-rebounding the Crusaders by nine, 44 to 35. The Blue and Gold held a plus-28 margin in paint scoring (48-20) and scored 31 points off 20 turnovers. Holy Cross, who also had four reach double figures in scoring, was led by Smith’s 16-point performance.

Mitchell’s double-double not enough to lift Lady Bucs past Virginia in Marriott Cavalier Classic Championship, 83-66

Destiny Mitchell (Bluffton, Ga.) scored 15 points and pulled down 12 rebounds, but it wasn’t enough to lift the Lady Bucs past Virginia as the Cavaliers captured the Marriott Classic Championship with an 83-66 victory Wednesday night inside John Paul Jones Arena. Mitchell’s third career double-double landed her on the all-tournament team after averaging 17.5 points and nine rebounds in the two games. Meanwhile, senior Tara Davis (Murfreesboro, Tenn.) scored 18 of her teamhigh 21 points in the second half and also dished out five assists. The Lady Bucs, who wrapped up non-conference play Wednesday night, dropped to 4-7 on the year; while the Cavaliers improved to 9-5 with the victory. Virginia hit on its first five shot attempts to start the game – and despite trailing by as many as eight – ETSU battled back to tie things up at 14 after Mitchell laid one in, forcing the Cavaliers to burn a timeout at the 13:06 mark. Unfortunately, foul trouble and shooting woes haunted the Lady Bucs for the remainder of the half. Latisha Belcher

(Martinsville, Va.) and Davis each picked up two fouls before the ten minute mark, while Mitchell was the third starter to go out with 7:50 remaining before intermission. With the game knotted at 16, ETSU went over four minutes without registering a point and the Cavaliers scored ten unanswered to grab a 26-16 lead with 8:28 left to play in the half. However, just after Mitchell stopped the scoring drought at the 7:56 mark, she was charged with her second foul six seconds later, and the Cavaliers controlled the remainder of the stanza. Virginia outscored the Lady Bucs 19-8 in the final eight minutes and led 45-26 at the break, thanks to Chelsea Shine sinking her first career threepointer as the clock struck zero. After shooting nearly 60-percent from the field last night, the Lady Bucs struggled as ETSU shot 33.3 percent (11-33) in the first 20 minutes. The Cavaliers posted a 46.9 shooting percentage (1532), while also outscoring ETSU by 12 at the free throw line. Virginia went 14-for-18 at the charity and the Lady Bucs were 2of-2. The Cavaliers used the first 4 minutes, 4 seconds of the second half

to extend their 19-point halftime lead to 26, 56-30. Despite not giving up an ETSU comeback wasn’t in the cards for the Blue and Gold tonight. The Lady Bucs were able to chip the 26point deficit in half, 71-58, when Mitchell scored two of her 15 points on a layup with less than seven minutes to play; however, Virginia wasn’t going to let ETSU spoil its post-holiday tournament fun. From there, the Cavaliers regained control and pushed their advantage to 20, and came away with the 17point win. For the game, ETSU shot 35.4 percent (23-65) and out-rebounded the Cavaliers 41 to 39. Virginia shot 49.2 percent (30-61) and turned 23 Lady Buccaneer turnovers into 24 points on the offensive end. After only going to the free throw line twice in the first half, the Lady Bucs made 21 trips to the charity stripe in the second, but the Blue and Gold finished 16-of-23 (69.6 percent) for the contest. The Cavaliers went to the line six times in the final 20 minutes and ended 19-for-24 (79.2 percent). Virginia had three players score in double figures with Shine leading the way with 22 points.

Home court kind as Bucs drop Campbell, 72-59

Holding one of the nation’s best shooting teams well under its average this season, the ETSU men’s basketball team enjoyed a victorious homecoming Thursday night inside the ETSU/MSHA Athletic Center, dropping Atlantic Sun Conference foe Campbell 72-59. The Camels entered the game 12th in the nation in shooting percentage at 49 percent a game, but shot just 39 percent from the floor against the Buccaneers. Meanwhile, the Bucs placed four players in double figures and shot 46 percent from the floor. “Our early schedule could have either broken us or gotten us ready for the league schedule,” said ETSU head coach Murry Bartow, whose team improved to 6-7 overall, 11 in A-Sun play after spending the entire month of December away from the Dome. “I hope that tonight shows that it helped us get ready. “I think you have to start with holding (Campbell) to 39 percent shooting from the floor. They have been averaging near 50 percent for the season and are one of the best shooting teams in the

nation. We also got big scoring games from guys like Adam Sollazzo and Justin Tubbs.” Sollazzo, a junior guard from Tampa, had a career high 17 points on the night, while Tubbs, a senior guard from Trussville, Ala., posted a game-high 21 in the winning effort. Meanwhile, ETSU’s Isiah Brown (Miami, Fla.) and Mike Smith (Vandalia, Mo.) added 13 and 10, respectively. Campbell (7-4, 11) got a team-high 19 points from Eric Griffin, while Junard Hartley had 15 and Lorne Merthie netted 11. It was a game of offensive runs in the early going, as the Camels raced out to an early 6-0 advantage only to have the Bucs respond with a 10-0 spurt of their own. Campbell then got a 5-0 run to retake the lead at 11-10, but ETSU manufactured a 9-0 run to take their largest lead of the half at 19-11 with 11:09 left before the break. From there, Campbell methodically battled back into the game and back-to-back 3-pointers from Anthony Horton and Eric Griffin gave the

Camels the advantage at 26-24 with just over three minutes left in the half. The Bucs enjoyed a strong final three minutes however, highlighted by a 10-2 run that ended with a longrange bomb by Smith at the buzzer, making it 3730 ETSU at the break. In the first half, both teams shot 46 percent from the floor and were even 17-17 on the boards. The ETSU edge came thanks to a 69 percent clip (9-of-13) from the free throw line, compared to 29 percent (2-of-7) for Campbell. ETSU also shot 57 percent from 3-point range (4-of-7). After the intermission, Sollazzo took over, scoring 12 points of ETSU’s 15 points at one stretch and helping the Bucs build a 58-41 lead with just over eight minutes left. Campbell would get no closer than 12 the rest of the way. For the game, ETSU outscored Campbell 24-11 off turnovers, while the Bucs also shot a strong 43 percent from beyond the 3-point line. The Bucs also committed just 11 turnovers against a Campbell team that has thrived on forcing turnovers on steals.

Lavinder steps down from Tornado Soccer

King College alum Matt Lavinder has decided to step down from the Tornado soccer program as head coach to focus on his real estate development business. “Coach Lavinder has left his mark on not only the King soccer program, but the campus as well,” King College President Dr. Gregory Jordan said. “He has influenced many of our students and the surrounding community during his time at King. His presence will be greatly missed.” Lavinder served as the head coach for 12 seasons, the longest tenure in program history. While at the helm, he guided the Tornado to a 122-97-15 record with three conference championships and a NAIA National Tournament bid in 2008. He led the program to five straight 10-win seasons, from 2005 to 2009, including 15 wins in 2005, the third most for a single season in program history. “I am very much looking forward to this new phase of my life,” Lavinder said. “I am confident I am leaving the soccer program in the best and most healthy point of its history. We have built something special here in the last 12 seasons, and there is a strong core returning to continue the championship tradition.” King was the 2007 and 2008 Appalachian Athletic Conference Tournament champions. The 2007 team added the AAC Regular Season title as well. Lavinder guided the 2005 team to the AAC regular season championship. He was picked by his peers as AAC Coach of the Year in 2004 and 2005. King qualified for the NAIA Region XII Tournament five times, 2002 and 2004 to 2007. A total of 45 players were All-Conference selections with

s e v e n earning All-American honors. The To r n a d o also performed in the classroom with 26 players earning Academic All-American nods during his tenure. The 2010 team did set a NCAA Division II record with 57 points in the Tornado’s 19-1 win over Tennessee Temple University in November. The 19 goals ranked third in NCAA Division II history for a single match with the 19 assists coming in tied for second. Lavinder, a ’95 King College graduate, was the leading scorer, captain, All-Conference selection, and Academic All-American during his years as a Tornado player. He played on the team from 1991 to 1994 before graduating. He went on to earn his Master's of Divinity from Duke University in 1999 where he assisted with the women's program. In addition to coaching, Lavinder served as an assistant professor in the history department at King. In 2007, Lavinder was selected by the student body as Faculty Lecturer where he delivered a lecture entitled "The Soul of King College as a Philosophy of Coaching." King will move Louis Thorpe, head women’s coach, into a Director of Soccer Operations role to oversee operations of both teams during the interim period. The school will seek to name a replacement as soon as possible.
