Now Coach Carlisle’s hard work has paid off in a new ranking from It puts Carlisle at No. 14 for all junior college coaches, divisions I, II and III.

The rankings were based on recent wins and losses, conference wins and losses, championships won, along with recent and incoming recruiting classes. The only other head coach in our state to be recognized was Dave Clark from Owens Community College in Toledo. Go Cougars!

Theatre Columbus State to perform in October

posterThe students in the Theater program will present their new comedy “1959 Pink Thunderbird Convertible” which is actually two plays by James McLure. Columbus State’s Frank Barnhart directs. The first act, “Laundry and Bourbon,” is the story of three small-town women who love to gossip. The second, “Lone Star,” is about Roy, a man who loves three things: his country, his beautiful wife and his 1959 pink Thunderbird Convertible — not necessarily in that order. The play will be performed Wednesday, October 17 through Saturday, October 20 at 8:00 p.m. in the Nestor Hall Auditorium. There will also be a 3:00 p.m. matinee on Thursday, October 18. Admission is free. This play is for mature audiences only!
