It’s More Than Spikes – It’s Also About Classroom Victories
Our Mt. Hood Saints finished in third place in the inaugural Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) President’s Cup!
The award is given out to the athletic programs that succeed in the classroom after factoring student GPA, credit completion and certificate or
degree completion. Of the institutions in the NWAACC that have eight or more sports, the Saints placed third behind Walla Walla
Community College and Clackamas Community College.
Adding the to the academic honors for the Saints, two of our volleyball players, Carrie Haguewood and Shawna Smith, were recently named
to the NWAACC All-Academic team. Students receiving this honor must be an athlete competing in a fall sport and have earned a GPA of at
least a 3.25 and have earned 36 credits.
The Saints volleyball team is also getting it done on the court and recently won the Green River Cross-Over Championship. Lihau Perreira
was named the Most Valuable Player of the tournament and Xanya Robinson was named to the All-tournament team.
