Centralia College has been named a recipient of the President’s Cup from the Northwest Athletic Conference.
The President’s Cup honors academic achievement among two-year college athletes. Centralia College received the honor for schools with fewer than eight sports. (Mt. Hood Community College received the honor for schools with more than eight sports.)
A formal presentation of the President’s Cup and banner was held Oct. 15 before the start of the Centralia College women’s volleyball game against Grays Harbor College.
The presentation was held at half court in the Michael Smith Gymnasium on the Centralia College campus.
NWAC Executive Director Marco Azurdia presented the President’s Cup to Centralia College President Dr. Robert Frost and Athletic Director Bob Peters. A celebration with the fans and athletes immediately followed.
The President’s Cup is awarded based on points, which are earned when student-athletes complete 36 credits, 72 credits, a certificate, or a degree. The amount of points awarded is determined by student-athletes’ GPAs.
The Oct. 15 volleyball game was also Breast Cancer Awareness Night at Centralia College. Trailblazer fans wired their brightest pink and enjoyed a free tailgating pizza party before the game.
