MINERAL AREA COLLEGE

Tradition Inn/Spokes Classic

The Tradition Inn/Spokes Classic is an early season Junior College Classic that is played on the campus of Mineral Area College.  The Classic features a four team field, and is sponsored by the Tradition Inn and Spokes Resturant.  MAC would like to thank our sponsors for their generous support that helps make this event possible. 

This season's teams include: Mineral Area College, Meramec, Spoon River (IL), and Dyersburg State (TN). MAC finished as the #13 team in the final 2006 NJCAA poll by finishing 28-5 and winning the NJCAA Region XVI Championship and capturing back-to-back MCCAC Conference Championships.  "Hall of Famer" Randy Albrecht enters his 30th year at Meramec. The Magic have posted 576 victories under Albrecht and finished last season at 18-14.  Spoon River (IL) finished the 2005-06 season 27-7, but faltered last season under first-year Head Coach Coach Scott Yerbic, finishing

3-27.  Dyersburg State (TN) will return to the Thanksgiving Classic after a one year hiatus.  Coach Barnett's Eagles finished the 2005-06 campaign at 3-22.
