MMI Softball Visits UAB Hospital's Heart/Lung Transplant ICU
December 8, 2011

On December 6, 2011, the Marion Military Institute softball team took time away from their daily routine to visit the patients and staff of the Heart/Lung Transplant Intensive Care Unit at UAB Hospital in Birmingham, Alabama.  Each player hand delivered Christmas cards and posters to the patients in HTICU. 

“I am very proud that our team was willing to take time to give to people who are struggling with life and death each day.  I am especially grateful to the staff at UAB HTICU for allowing us to honor the work that they are doing.  My family as well as many others would be much worse off without them, said MMI Head Softball Coach, Joe Guthrie. 

Former MMI Tennis Players Making Their Mark in Major College Athletics
September 12, 2011

Marion, Alabama — Former MMI tennis players are beginning to dot the rosters of major colleges around the country. Tennis programs of every stripe (DI, DII, DIII, and NAIA) are selecting MMI athletes either to play critical roles on their current squads or to round out their rosters.

“I am very pleased and proud of all the tennis players who have come through our program here at MMI,” said head coach Chuck Wright. “My primary goal isn’t to produce great tennis players and be a feeder system for other colleges. My primary goal is to produce great students and great people. The players that have gone on to play at these premier colleges have all exhibited a great love of the game and a great work ethic. They have been some of the hardest workers I’ve had, both on the courts and in the classrooms.”

A doff of the tennis visor goes to the following great players, great students, and great people: Andrew Bryson—U.S. Coast Guard Academy (DIII), Andrew Cobb—Reinhardt University (NAIA), Ashley Grafton—Marquette University (DI), Chad Llewellyn—West Point (DI), Savannah Stachowiak—West Point (DI), and Mason Tedesco—University of Nebraska at Kearney (DII).

Six Tennis Players Secure Appointments to Service Academies
May 24, 2010

Marion, AL—It was a banner year for the men’s and women’s tennis teams as they sent a bumper crop of players (six all told) to the U.S. Coast Guard Academy (Austin Dean, Karlin Joh, and Mariclair Vaillant), the U.S. Military Academy at West Point (Phillip Le and Chad Llewellyn), and the U.S. Naval Academy (Ashley Grafton).

All six of the aforementioned student-athletes participated in Marion Military Institute’s elite and prestigious Service Academy Preparatory (SAP) program, which, according to MMI’s Web site, “entails a solid academic core, an outstanding military program, and intensive courses to improve your test scores.” 

Upon satisfactorily completing the program, an SAP student matriculates into one of the following five service academies:  the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, the U.S. Naval Academy, the U.S. Air Force Academy, the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, or the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Chad Llewellyn, MMI’s No. 1 tennis player and a graduate of the SAP program, shared his thoughts about his MMI experience:  “My time at MMI was a really good experience for me.  As a student-athlete in the SAP program, I learned a lot about time management and prioritizing.  I tried to balance it all—academics and athletics—and excel.  Academically, the teachers were good—great, in fact.”

Rachel Rossi Completes Stellar Tennis Career at MMI
May 24, 2010

Marion, AL—Rachel  Rossi, MMI’s No. 1 singles player for the last two years, has ended her career as the most dominant and decorated tennis player in the three-year history of the women’s tennis program.

Rossi is a two-time ITA (Intercollegiate Tennis Association) Regional Singles Champion, two-time ACCC (Alabama Community College Conference) First-Flight Singles Champion, and two-time ACCC MVP.  She is also, with her doubles partner Ashley Grafton, an ITA Regional Doubles Champion and ACCC First-Flight Doubles Champion for the 2009-10 season. 

 In her two years of ACCC play, she has an unblemished singles record in conference play, and she has lost but one doubles match.

Rossi finished as the 20th-ranked NJCAA (National Junior College Athletic Association) player in the 2008-09 Campbell/ITA College Women’s Tennis Rankings.  For the 2009-10 season, Rossi landed in the 21st slot in singles play, and in doubles action, she and Grafton wound up in the 13th spot.

Because of her extraordinary competitive spirit and her unparalleled prowess on the tennis court, Rossi was presented with the Tommy Murfee Award for Outstanding Student-Athlete at MMI’s Athletic Awards Ceremony, held in the MMI Chapel, on April 26, 2010.
