The fall sports at Shoreline Community College kicked off their season on August 31-September 1 with mixed results.




The Lady Dolphin Volleyball Team, the defending NWAACC Northern Region Champions, had a strong showing at the 15 team Highline Community College Volleyball Tournament, finishing third and compiling a 3-2 record. The SCC squad went 2-1 in pool play, defeating Lower Columbia College and Southwestern Oregon Community College while dropping a match to the Community College of Spokane. SCC was the #2 in their pool played host Highline Community College in the first round of the Championship Bracket. SCC defeated the Thunderbirds in three games to advance to the semi-finals. SCC faced NWAACC volleyball power, Tacoma Community College in the semis and had match point in the third game 15-14, but could not put the Titans away and lost that match 17-15. SCC finished tied for third with Bellevue College.


2010 NWAACC Northern Region Player of the Year, Lisa Day, was named to the First Team All-Tournament squad for SCC, while Christine Jenson was placed on the second team.


The volleyball team travels to Northwest Indian College on Wednesday for a match in Bellingham, WA.


Women’s Soccer:


The SCC Women’s Soccer Team under first year coach, Aaron Howe, opened their season with two ties at the NWAACC “Friendlies” Tournament at the Starfire Complex in Tukwila, WA. In the opening match of the two day event, SCC played Chemeketa Community College from Oregon and battled to a 3-3 tie. Freshmen Taylyr McLean, Donna Norton and Sara Gilmore all scored goals for SCC, who constantly played from behind in the game after falling behind 1-0, 2-1 and 3-2, but managed to tie the game three times.


The second match of the tournament for Shoreline was against Clackamas Community College, also from Oregon, and again, SCC found themselves in a tie, as the Lady Dolphins again fell behind 1-0 but tied the game late in the first half on a goal by sophomore Anastaja Norins-Endres, and then played to a scoreless second half.


SCC opens its home schedule on Labor Day, as the Lady Dolphins play NWAACC power, Walla Walla CC, who went 2-0 in the “Friendlies” tournament, outscoring their opponents 9-0. Match time is 1:00 PM. Admission is $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for students.


Men’s Soccer:


The defending NWAACC Northern Region Champions had a rough opening set of games at the NWAACC “Friendlies” Tournament at the Starfire Complex in Tukwila, WA. The SCC Dolphins had high hopes of a good start to the 2011 season, after starting last season 0-7-2 before winning 8 games in a row to make a run to the NWAACC Final Four and finishing third in the NWAACC.


SCC opened the tournament with a 3-1 loss to Clark College from Vancouver, WA. SCC scored first on a goal by freshman Jakob Hibbard, but Clark answered back with a quick strike themselves and added another goal before halftime to lead 2-1. Clark then sealed the game with a second half goal to finish the scoring. SCC had several opportunities in the second half but could not muster another score.


On Thursday, SCC faced a tough Chemeketa squad, but again SCC opened the scoring on a goal by freshman Connor Barton, but Chemeketa tied the game less than 2 minutes later and then scored two more first half goals to lead 3-1 at half. Chemeketa dominated the second half as well and produced 2 more goals to win the match, 5-1.


SCC will try to recover as they open their home schedule on Monday against Walla Walla CC at 3:15 PM at Dolphin Field on the SCC campus. Walla Walla finished the “Friendlies” tournament 1-1.


Admission if $5.00 for adults and $3.00 for students at all SCC Home Soccer matches.

* The Shoreline Community College Athletic Department Announces Fall Academic Awards

The Shoreline Community College Athletic Department announced their Fall 2010 Academic Awards today, with 58 student-athletes having a 3.00 GPA or better, 20 of those making a 3.50 GPA or better, and one Dolphin Club winne, who has a perfect 4.00 for the fall quarter.


Athletic Director Doug Palmer is 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% 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).
