No one has beaten South Puget Sound Community College in the NWAC West Region so far. It became obvious very quickly Wednesday night that Grays Harbor wasn’t going to be the first as the Clippers raced away to a 98-60 home victory over the Chokers.
Clipper Athletics and SPSCC closed the inaugural season of women’s volleyball in November on a positive note. After nearly a year of turning an idea into reality, the Clippers ended their first season 4-10 in the NWAC West, but Coach Melanie Miller praised the freshmen ladies for their determination and “will-to-win” attitudes.
I am very proud of the way we battled with every team we played,” said Miller. “Scores were close and we took a set off almost every team.”
Clipper Athletics and SPSCC celebrate as the Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) awarded the men’s soccer team with three distinguished awards at the close of the 2016 season. Awards include a region all-star, all-academic award, and co-coach of the year selections.
The team will celebrate and share team awards tonight at their end-of-season banquet. The NWAC West Region Team will be released in mid-November and several players are expected to make that team, as well.
Clippers Athletics today announced season outlooks for its Men’s and Women’s Basketball teams for the 2016-17 year. Last season, both teams achieved personal record bests in league standings and several student athletes were honored for their achievements on and off the court. Resonating from coaches Landon (men’s team) and Moore (women’s team) was excitement, high expectations, and confidence for their balanced teams of Clippers rookies and returners.
Just months after its best season in school history, Clipper Men’s Basketball launches a new program to root student athletes in the Thurston County community. Partnering with businesses and members of the community, Clipper Athletics anticipates that the Hometown Hero Program will help student athletes from outside the Thurston area make local relationships that encourage athletic and academic success.
