USU Eastern’s basketball organization has been busy early in the offseason, with both squads signing multiple players for next fall. For the women’s team, head coach Chelsey Warburton added eight players to help fill the void that the departing sophomores left this past season, while the men added two. The women’s coaches added Brooklyn Barrus, who is a 5-foot-6-inch guard from Mountain Crest High School. In her senior season, Barrus averaged 18.7 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.3 steals per game.

Being 6 foot 3 inches and from Puerto Rico makes Lionel Colon Adams not your typical Puerto Rican. He joined the USU Eastern baseball program in January after playing fall semester with Arizona Western. Spending his entire life without seeing snow, moving to Price was a huge wake up call for the 18-year- old freshmen pitcher. He said he came to Eastern because he couldn’t pass up the opportunity to further his education and get better at baseball.

Earlier this month, Eagles’ guard Madison Loftus was named First Team All-Region by the Scenic West Athletic Conference. In her freshman campaign, Loftus led her team in scoring, averaging 15.1 points per game and finished the season as the third highest scorer in the conference. “I was really excited when I found out. It’s neat to see everything pay off, and it’s always cool to get recognition for your school,” she said.  All season, the Eagles’ high-energy, fast-paced style of basketball allowed Loftus to thrive in each game and showcase a wide variety of talents.

Chelsey Warburton will add another title to her name June 1, as she was named athletic director, replacing Dave Paur who served over two decades as AD for the Price two-year college. I had a chance to catch up with Vice Chancellor, Greg Dart this week and get some answers about the hire that all of us need to know. Q: Is this a permanent hire or a temporary hire until budgets are figured out further for a full-time position? Or is Chelsey a full-time athletic director and part-time head coach?

This last week I had a chance to sit down with the point guard of Utah State University Eastern, who is one of the many international students on our men’s basketball team this year. He has battled through injuries and hopes to be stronger then ever for the Region tournament. I was able to ask him various questions and to have wonderful conversation with him. In this news article I want to switch it up by having a question and answer segment with Milan Surlic to help us get a better understanding of where this young man from Nis Serbia comes from and his rich culture and family values.
