    Baseball team celebrates successful season 

    The baseball team won the regional championship, and the national runner-up trophy.



    The North campus baseball team recently returned home to a celebration reception, held in the North campus student center.

    The team recently put an exclamation point on a very successful 2010 season by emerging as the national runner-up at the JUCO World Series, held in Grand Junction, Colorado.

    At the welcome home celebration, Chancellor Dr. Brenda Hellyer, North campus President Dr. Allatia Harris, and North campus Athletic Director Shawn Silman congratulated the players and staff — Head Coach Tom Arrington, assistant coaches Kory Koehler, Jason Krug, DJ Wilson, and Jimmy Durham; and athletic trainer Travis Greenway — for their accomplishments.



    Coach Arrington, who earned the Region XIV South Conference coach of the year honors for the seventh time in his 10 years at the helm of the San Jac program, congratulated the players and coaches and expressed his sincere appreciation for their dedication and teamwork throughout the long, demanding season.

    The team finished the regular season as the Region XIV South Zone champions, and then emerged as the undefeated champions of the Region XIV tournament, played in mid-May in Mount Pleasant.

    They then traveled to Grand Junction as the top seed in the JUCO World Series, and as the top ranked team in the nation. The team came very close to bringing home a national title, losing by 1 run in the championship game.

    Congratulations to the San Jac baseball team, and to the coaching staff for a truly amazing season, and thanks to the faithful fans who support the College’s top-notch baseball program.

    Women’s basketball to be in the ‘Pink Zone’ Feb. 24 vs. Angelina College 

    Calling all ladies (and guys)! The San Jacinto College women’s basketball team is participating in the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association (WBCA) Pink Zone again this year. The Pink Zone s a global, unified effort for the WBCA’s nation of coaches to assist in raising breast cancer awareness on the court, across campuses, and in local communities. You can participate, too! Just wear pink to the game on Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 5:30 p.m., and support the team as they raise money for breast cancer research and awareness.

    The first 100 fans to the game will receive a free T-shirt. Donations will be accepted during the game, with proceeds going towards breast cancer research and awareness. And, a portion of the proceeds from the concession stand will also be donated to breast cancer research! Coaches and players from both teams will don pink during the game in support of the cause.

    In the last two years, San Jac has raised over $1,000 for the Susan G. Komen for the Cure Houston affiliate. In just its third year in 2009, the WBCA’s Pink Zone initiative had 1,600 participating teams, reached more than 912,000 fans nationwide, and raised over $1.3 million for breast cancer awareness and research. The initiative began in 2007 with just 120 participating schools and teams.

    So, put on that pink, scour your couches and car floors for any loose change, and come out to the women’s basketball game on Feb. 24 at 5:30 p.m. to support the team and breast cancer research and awareness!!

    The men’s soccer team hosted the Houston Dynamo Youth Academy on Sept. 4 at the South campus soccer field. It was the first match under the new lights recently installed at field, and a large crowd of enthusiastic fans turned out for the match.

    Teri Fowle, Amanda Booren, Jeannie Peng-Armao, and Rob Vanya from the marketing office were on hand to photograph the event and to give away T-shirts and tickets to a Dynamo game. The South campus office of student life provided snow cones and popcorn.

    South campus choral singers, under the direction of Cynthia Stevens, delivered a stirring rendition of the National Anthem.

    Congratulations to head soccer coach Dr. David Santesteban, and assistant coaches Ian Spooner and Iñaki Eraña Cassi for a successful season kickoff. The icing on the cake – the San Jac soccer team defeated the Houston Dynamo Youth Academy squad 3-1.
