In his new position as head men’s basketball coach, Jonathan Willis brings a blend of coaching and student-athlete development experience to SPSCC.

In her new position as head women’s basketball coach, Darah Vining will bring a mix of coaching expertise and player development experience to SPSCC. The position is a dual role, with Vining also serving as the assistant athletic director, making her a valuable addition to The Clippers.
SPSCC and Clipper Athletics recently welcomed to its athletics staff Darah Vining, fulfilling the dual role assistant athletic director and head women’s basketball coach.
Prior to coming to SPSCC, Vining was the lead assistant coach at Northwest University and worked for the City of Mercer Island Parks and Recreation.
“She brings her expertise of coaching at a four-year level and understands the dedication and commitment it takes for student-athletes to be successful,” said SPSCC athletics director Vernell Willingham.
In 2017, SPSCC students voted to create a Health & Wellness Center at the college's Olympia Campus, funded by student fees. Construction is nearing completion and, despite a pause in construction this spring, is still expected to be complete in summer 2020. The new space gives the college an opportunity to expand intramural activities and club sports, and opens the possibilities for more kinds of for-credit PE classes.
