April 27, 2017

McPherson College men’s basketball coach Tim Swartzendruber continues to be hot on the recruiting trail.

Swartzendruber has announced the signing of Ell-Saline guard Tanier Clifford to a letter of intent.

“We had the opportunity to watch and evaluate Tanier during our Fall Basketball League," Swartzendruber said. "We felt Tanier fit our culture and we are excited to have him join our program and college. Tanier has a lot of upside from a basketball skills perspective. He is a great student and active in other things besides basketball. We are thrilled he chose McPherson College to continue his education and basketball career."

Clifford, a 6-1 guard, averaged 4.6 points, 3 rebounds an an assist a game for the Cardinals.

He has played two years of high school golf and is a member of the Ell-Saline chapter of the Future Farmers of America. In addition, he made the honor roll and participated in Big Brothers/Big Sisters and Friends of Rachel.

He will major in business.

Britny Arnett To Be Next Featured Artist At The McPherson Public Library

By KBBE News
April 27, 2017

  The paintings of Britny Arnett will be on display in the McPherson Public Library meeting room from May 1 - June 25, with an artist's reception on Sunday, May 21, 2:00 - 4:00 p.m.

          Arnett’s show “Rediscovering the Fun” is a collection of acrylic paintings created in late 2016 and early 2017.

          Arnett is influenced by many artists, such as Minna Sundberg, Ejiwa Ebenebe, Nathan Fowkes,  Lorelay Bove, Brittney Lee, Noah Bradley, Terryl Whitlatch, and Aaron Blaise.  These artists and the work they do both inspired and intimidated Arnett, until she learned to treat painting like a fun and joyful experiment in the unknown.

          “I let go of trying to make it perfect,” Arnett states, “and found the joy in painting again.  Rediscovering the fun in the work was crucial.  I hope when one sees any one of these experiments, that they themselves might be inspired to try something new and rediscover the fun of it.”

          For more information about this event, or other library events, call the library at 245-2570, or email them at library@macpl.org.

KCAC men’s tennis regular-season champion McPherson College carted home a truckload of honors today as conference awards were released.

The Bulldogs’ Joan-Marc Fajula Rodriguez was tabbed Player of the Year, while teammate Hector Carrillo-Perales was named Scholar Athlete of the Year. Carrillo-Perales also joined Rodriguez on the first team, along with another Bulldog, Ahmed Lahlou.

Bethany’s Juan Mateus also made the first team. Southwestern's Franco Poi and Tabor’s Illia Filanchuk completed the first team.

Poi was awarded Freshman of the Year, Edward Sengai of Bethany College was named Newcomer of the Year and Michael Moody of Kansas Wesleyan University earned the Sportsmanship Award. 

Bethany’s Tony Swiantek was named Coach of the Year by his peers after leading his Swedes to a 12-6 overall and 7-1 KCAC record, second to McPherson College.

Bethany had two second-team picks, Teodor Anteij and Aaron Moses. Mac had a pair of honorable mention selections in Nicholas Wahl and Juan Alejandro Jimenez.
