VGCC honors Men’s Basketball sophomores

Three sophomore student-athletes on the Vance-Granville Community College Vanguards men’s basketball team were recently honored on the completion of their playing careers at the college.

Just before the start of the Vanguards’ last home game of the season, versus Guilford Tech Community College on Feb. 24, VGCC Head Coach DeMarcus Oliver recognized three departing players -- forward Mitch Beck of Raleigh (a graduate of East Wake High School), point guard Kenneth “KJ” Finley, Jr., of Louisburg (Wakefield High School) and combo guard Calvin Malik Manley of Louisburg (Louisburg High School).

Beck is also a VGCC student ambassador and will soon complete the Associate in Arts program. Finley and Manley are both finishing up their associate degrees in Criminal Justice.
