Athletic Director Doug Palmer is very happy with the results: 
“In the fall of 2009, we had 59 student-athletes with a 3.00 or better, so we are staying very consistent in our academic pursuits. Even with 3 new head coaches this year, the main focus of our department to produce good students has been maintained. We know that 99.99% of our student-athletes will not turn professional in their sport careers, so we want to make sure they pursue their academics at SCC, and hopefully are successful enough in the classroom to transfer to a four year institution for further social and academic development or finish with a certificate or associate degree that will lead them to a job or career in a field of their choice”.

Blair Stone, a 50+ year old student at SCC, who plays on the women’s tennis team, led the way for the academic clubs, with a perfect 4.00 GPA. 

The academic clubs consist of the “Green” Club (3.00 – 3.49 GPA), the “Gold” Club (3.50 – 3.99 GPA) and the “Dolphin” Club, (4.00 GPA).
