Are you a freshman who has never witnessed Community College sports? No worries! Here is a breakdown of Shoreline Community College’s active sports this quarter and a basic guide on how to survive throughout the season. And no… SCC does not have American Football. Not new to SCC? Welcome back!

Post-Season Baseball Wrap-up for SCC

Shoreline’s active sports come to a halt with the Dolphin Baseball team wrapping up the season.

SCC finished second-to-last in the North Region with 10 wins and 24 losses with 20.5 games behind the leader, Edmonds Community College, and no players in the overall leaderboard.

NWAACC baseball teams compete through the weekend with two doubleheaders, two home and two away. Ten games were cancelled in the first few weeks. SCC finally played their first game against Grays Harbor College at Lower Woodland. The team started off with a win, 4-0.

Interim Director Hopes to Knock it Out of the Park

“I didn’t even know we had a soccer team,” SCC Student Wyatt True said. “They should do a better job of promoting themselves. I would watch the games if I knew about them.”

This sentiment is not an isolated issue. Of the five students interviewed, all knew SCC had organized sports on campus and could tell me a few of the teams SCC had. None, however, could say when they played, how often, or where to watch the games.

Cody Bratton, a first-year drama department student, didn’t even know SCC had a gymnasium.

SCC Players See University Hoop Dreams

Earl Thompson #32 Height: 6’5”

On his way out of the NWAACC, Earl Thompson to join the Canadian College Athletics Association. He is deciding between Brandon University and Lakehead University and completing his Bachelors degree in Communications.

This Guard/Forward has been playing basketball since age 3 and enjoys depositing his own “style” and “creativity” to the court. “I like that you can bring out your most inner self and compete at the highest level (in basketball)”, said Thompson.

New Yoga Club Says Namaste Here at SCC

Time to roll out a yoga mat, put on comfortable clothes, and practice the tree pose: SCC now has a yoga club.

Stacie Attridge, who teaches the yoga classes on campus, leads the yoga club. She has taught yoga for 14 years. “I teach hatha yoga,” she says. “I have taken workshops in Anusara and Iyengar style, so I’ve collected from all of that and experiment and mix it all together.”

SCC Basketball Coaches Shoot for New Beginnings

Greg Turcott, head coach of the Shoreline Community College men’s basketball team, recently resigned. “It was time,” Turcott said. “I am honored to have been here for four years. It takes a lot of energy to teach and coach.”

During last basketball season, the team practiced about five days a week, twice a day. Players conditioned in the morning and practiced on the court in the afternoon. On top of this, Greg Turcott also worked as a history and PE/health teacher at Alderwood Middle School.

Dolphins Find Solace in Late Game Comeback

Rain, sun, hope and heartache seemed to be the mixture for the Shoreline Community College Dolphins these past two weekends. Another disappointing four-game losing sweep to the Douglas College Royals was followed by an impressive win over the Everett Community College Trojans.

Coming out of their route with the Bellevue College Bulldogs, the Dolphins found hope in an electrifying last-inning comeback that would break their losing streak and keep their spirits high against Douglas College.

Bulldogs stomp Dolphins with disappointing four-in-a-row sweep

It was a rainy Saturday in the center of Bellevue College that kicked off the weekend’s first doubleheader. With a heartbreaking 11-6 loss, the Shoreline Community College Dolphins would stay in a rut for the remaining three games, resulting in a disappointing sweep to the Bellevue College Bulldogs. Coming off an already four-game losing streak, this recent matchup will be eight straight losses for the mostly first-year ball club.

SCC Softball has been Benched for the Season

Shoreline Community College failed to field a softball team for the first time ever according to the current stand-in Athletic Director, Steve Eskridge.

The former coach, Lance Swehla, resigned in late July amid allegations of sexual harassment and professional misconduct, according to documents on file with the school administration. Of the 15 girls who were once members of the team, only one still attends school at Shoreline and nine of the former players left.
