2009-10 April Scholar-Athletes of the Month

Amanda Edwards


Corey Meyers

The Community Colleges of Spokane’s Female Scholar-Athlete of the Month for April is Amanda Edwards.  Amanda is a freshman pitcher/first baseman from Trail, British Columbia, who is currently maintaining a 3.76 GPA. She has become a force on the mound during the month of April, winning 4 straight games, including two must-win games against Wenatchee and Yakima.  Her bat has also come to life, hitting .500 in the final four games in April, raising her batting average to .323. During that time, she drove in 8 runs, hitting 2 homeruns and a double.  Coach Janet Skaife says, "Amanda is all business in the classroom and on the field. She earned a 4.0 fall quarter while taking classes geared toward a nursing degree. She is an intense and focused athlete. She puts a great deal of pressure on herself to perform, and, fortunately, she has learned to relax a bit, which has helped her achieve greater success the past few weeks." Nicknamed, "Canada" because she is our only international student, Amanda is a model scholar-athlete and we are proud to have her represent Community Colleges of Spokane softball.

Congratulations Amanda!

The Community Colleges of Spokane’s Male Scholar-Athlete of the Month for April is Corey Meyers.  Corey, from Deer Park High School, is in his sophomore season on the CCS men’s golf team. Corey has established himself as one of the top golfers in the NWAACC and one of the best golfers in the greater Spokane area with his many under par rounds. Corey was the medalist at the NIC Invitational, a 14-team tournament that featured many four-year schools. He has also placed second in two big invitational tournaments this year and has shot nine tournament rounds at par or under. Corey had an outstanding performance when he shot a 7-under par 28 on the back nine of the first day of the Bigfoot Invitational at Esmeralda Golf Course. He made seven birdies and two pars during the incredible 9-hole run. His great individual rounds have led the team to many tournament victories and helped Spokane to be in first place in the NWAACC golf standings.    Corey’s dedication and work ethic carry over into the classroom as he posted a 3.98 G.P.A. during the winter quarter and has a 3.49 cumulative G.P.A. Corey plans to attend Whitworth University to continue his education and golfing career.
Congratulations Corey!
