Lady Tiger Emme Colwell Honored For Entry to 1,000 Point Club

Another outstanding DCHS Lady Tiger basketball player has become a member of the 1,000 point club.
Emme Colwell, a senior, was recognized Friday night at DCHS during halftime of the Tigers game with Cannon County.

Roy Nelson Pugh of Liberty State Bank presented a plaque to Colwell for having scored over 1,000 points (1,045 to date) in her high school basketball career. Colwell actually reached the 1,000 point milestone during the recent Daytona Beach Shootout against Dutchtown High School. The Lady Tigers went on to win the championship of the shootout, also known as the Sunshine Classic in Florida over the holidays.

“This is our way at Liberty State Bank of congratulating Emme on her accomplishments,” said Pugh.
Emme is the daughter of Derrick and Shea Colwell.

Over her storied career as a Lady Tiger, Emme has been a force on both sides of the floor. She amassed 216 points as a freshman, 335 points as a sophomore, 320 points as a junior, and 174 points so far in her senior year for a total of 1,045 points.

Along with the 1,045 points, Emme has also collected 571 rebounds, 163 assists, 107 blocks, and 193 steals.

Emme was named to the 3rd Team 8-AA District during her freshman and junior seasons and 2nd Team and “Most Improved Player” in 8-AA as a sophomore. Last season she was a 4-AA All-Region Team member and a driving force on last season’s State Tournament Team.

“Emme has been as constant as the rising sun. She has always given me, the team, and her community her best. She demonstrates all the characteristics of our basketball program: hard work, high character and toughness. Emme will go down as one of the best to ever wear the black and gold,” said Lady Tiger Coach Danny Fish.
