Halle Watson, Sterling Penniston-John, Casandra White, Nyair Cleveland, Samantha Oliveira and Sunshine Vicente were the recipients of the six major Peninsula College Athletic Awards, presented Tuesday afternoon at the annual Board of Trustees awards event.
“This was a great year in Pirate Athletics, with another Northwest Athletic Conference championship, two league championships and all four teams reaching the playoffs,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life, “and this group of student athletes was really stellar. The six award recipients represented their respective teams at a very high level.”
Watson and Penniston-John, both of Las Vegas, were named the female and male Wally Sigmar Award winners for exemplifying leadership, athleticism, academics and citizenship on and off the soccer field.
White of Modesto, CA, and Cleveland, of Tacoma, were named the female and male Art Feiro Award winners for the same criteria, leadership, athleticism, academics and citizenship representing the Pirate basketball program.
Peninsula College also annually names two female freshman athletes who exemplify inspiration, dedication, accomplishment and ambassadorship to the William and Annie McMullen Award. This year’s winners are Samantha Oliveira of Porterville, CA, for soccer and Sunshine Vicente of Honolulu, HI, for basketball.
