Grand Rapids Community College has announced that three sophomores from last year’s team will be transferring to four-year schools next season.
Entering his sophomore season, Carroll’s leadership and improved game allowed the Raiders to earn a bid to the NJCAA Division II National Tournament in Danville, Ill.
In 2012 Carroll saw more than twice as many starts and playing time. He averaged 7.8 points, 3.7 rebounds and a team leading 5 assists per game.
Despite his contributions to his team’s success in 2012, Carroll took little credit for how well the Raiders finished when asked what got his team so far during the tournament in March. Carroll explained that Coach Carnegie’s leadership and his teammate’s unselfish play afforded them the opportunity to compete at the highest level in NJCAA Division II.
Tracy appeared in 29 games as a sophomore and averaged 3.6 points per game. He also shot 34% from beyond the 3pt line while averaging one assist per contest.
During the 2011-2012 season, Tracy came off the bench to score in double digits in three contests.
Beyond his contributions on the court, Tracy won the NJCAA’s Exemplary Academic Achievement Award for finishing his second season with a GPA of 3.6 or higher.
After his playing days at Wyoming Tri-unity Christian High School, Mysliwiec enrolled at Hope College. As a freshman he averaged 6.7 points per game while playing 13.1 minutes per game. After transferring to GRCC and suiting up as a Raider, Mysliwiec was no stranger to filling up the stat sheet. He averaged 13.2 points per game and also shot a cool 34% from behind the 3pt line.
Throughout the 2011-2012 season, Mysliwiec had lots of standout individual performances. In an early season match-up with the Kalamazoo Valley CC Cougars, he scored a then season high of 20 points. He also had other dominating offensive performances such as when he scored 23 points against Muskegon CC, 33 against Ancilla College, 27 points in the rematch with Kalamazoo Valley CC, 30 points in the rematch versus Muskegon CC, and 27 points against South Mountain CC. The efficient scoring contributed greatly to GRCC’s District 8 Championship and appearance in the NJCAA DII National Tournament.
