The fall sports at Shoreline Community College kicked off their 2010 training camps Monday, August 16, with opening team meetings and practices. The women’s volleyball team, the women’s soccer team and the men’s soccer team returned to campus with high hopes for 2010.

The women’s soccer team, after winning four straight NWAACC Northern Region Championships between 2005 and 2008, finished second last season to Whatcom Community College. The Lady Dolphins, under long time coach Mark Szabo, hope to return to the top of the region and make another appearance at the NWAACC Final Four, as the team did in 2007 and 2008, finishing 3rd in both trips to the championship. SCC was 8-5-4 in 2009, 7-3-3 in the Northern Region. SCC beat Olympic College in the NWAACC playoffs, but lost in the quarterfinals to Walla Walla CC, the eventual NWAACC Women’s Champion.

The SCC men’s soccer team finished second in the Northern Region as well and hopes to better that position in 2010 and win a first round playoff game. The SCC men’s squad lost to Highline Community College last year at home in the first round of the playoffs. The Dolphins were 7-9-1 overall last year, 6-6-1 in the Northern region.

The volleyball team returned to the NWAACC Championship last season for the first time in four years and hopes to build on that success with an even better season in 2010. The Lady Dolphins were 11-19 overall last season, playing a tough non-region schedule, but finished 6-6 in the region and fourth place in the division. SCC lost two straight matches at the NWAACC Championship, but beat the NWAACC Champions, the Community College of Spokane, twice during the regular season, to prove their worth as a playoff contending team.

The volleyball team opens their season with a home match against Northwest Indian College on September 1 at 7 pm in the SCC Gym. 

The men’s soccer team opens at home as well, with Tacoma Community College on September 4 at 1 pm at the SCC Soccer Field. 

The Lady Dolphin Soccer team opens on the road against Bellevue College on September 7, in Salem, Oregon, at the NWAACC Crossover Tournament at Chemeketa Community College. SCC women’s soccer opens at home on September 17 against defending NWAACC Champion, Walla Walla CC at 2 pm at the SCC Soccer Field.
