It has been another year of incredible student successes, college awards, and faculty and staff growth at SPSCC. While our list of achievements and proud moments far exceed a "top 10" list, we've done our best to highlight some of our favorite memories from this past year.
The Black Hills State University men's basketball team has announced the addition of Dez Stoudamire as part of its 2017 signing class. Stoudamire is a 6-2 guard from Portland, Oregon, and transfers to BHSU after becoming the all-time leading scorer at South Puget Sound Community College, tallying 1,153 points in just two seasons.
The historical 2016-2017 Clippers Men’s Basketball season came to an end on Friday, March 10, when the Clippers lost to the RiverHawks of Umpqua Community College 66-53 at Everett Community College. The Clippers were the lone Regional Champion to advance to the Elite 8 of the NWAC Championship.
“It’s the best team in South Puget Sound history,” Coach Aaron Landon said. “... It was really hard to come up short, but it’s just a really exciting time at South Puget Sound. “We’ve got really good people at the college. You can quote me on it — we’ll be good again next year.”
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.
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.
