ELLISVILLE – A former Laurel High School standout has joined the Jones County Junior College women’s basketball team.

Tamirra Haskin signed with East Central Community College after graduating from LHS. She started 20 games for the Lady Warriors, averaged 11.6 points per game and was Honorable Mention All-MACJC this past season.

“We are excited to have Tamirra join our team here at Jones,” said JCJC head coach Missy Bilderback. “She is a strong guard that finishes well around the basket and can shoot it as well. She has played in this league a year and that experience is huge.  I look forward to having an opportunity to coach Tamirra.”
