The Shoreline Community College Athletic Department announced its Green, Gold and Dolphin Academic Clubs for spring quarter 2011 and for the academic year of 2010-11 today. 

For the first time in the three year history of the academic athletic clubs, SCC had three 4.0 GPA students in one quarter. The Green Club is for students with a 3.00 to 3.49 GPA, Gold Club for 3.50 to 3.99 and Dolphin Club, 4.0 GPA.

Matt Cottingham (Baseball), Chelsea Lindroth (Softball) and Joseph Ademofe (Men’s Soccer) all had 4.0 GPAs for the spring quarter, Cottingham and Lindroth accomplished the feat during their busy spring seasons.

Overall, 38 Dolphins are represented in the spring quarter clubs, 35 different individuals as Jenny Voss and Andrea Schneider played multiple sports for SCC this year. 

Freshman Voss was the first three sport athlete at SCC in a long time, as she was recruited to SCC from Aberdeen High School as a scholarship women’s soccer and basketball player, but also joined the short handed women’s tennis team in the spring quarter to fill out their roster and ended up winning three individual matches and two doubles matches at the NWAACC Tennis Championship. Schneider played women’s basketball and then joined the softball team in the spring quarter.

The softball team dominated the spring grades, with 7 members in the academic clubs, 3 in Green, 3 in Gold and 1 Dolphin. The softball team on the field went 18-15-1 overall, 17-7 in the NWAACC Northern Region; good enough to finish second in the region and go to the NWAACC Softball Championships were they won 1 game and lost 2.

SCC Athletic Director Doug Palmer said: “SCC Softball is a great example of how it can be done on the field and in the classroom. Coach Swehla and his team has over the past three seasons won a regional championship and finished second twice, plus has produced the highest number of academic club members as well. SCC softball does college athletics the right way”.
