The Community Colleges of Spokane January Female Scholar Athlete of the Month is Eleaya Schuerch.   Eleaya’s leadership, inspiration and work ethic have put her in a class all by herself.  As a sophomore and Team Captain she has kept the team on track and focused by setting achievable team goals and leading the effort to accomplish those feats.  On the court her defensive ability and athleticism have allowed her to guard the opponent’s best wing player. Eleaya is third on the team in rebounding, averaging 4 per game.  On the offensive end, Eleaya is contributing 6 points per game shooting 43%.  In the classroom over her last two quarters, Eleaya has a 3.5 GPA.  Eleaya was a starter on the 2007-08 NWAACC Championship runner-up team that finished 22-8 and 10-4 in the Eastern Region.  We are extremely fortunate to have Eleaya back on the team this year as we look forward to getting back to the NWAACC Tournament.

Congratulations Eleaya!
 

 

        

 

The Community Colleges of Spokane January Male Scholar Athlete of the Month is Danny Marshall.  Danny, a 6’6” forward from East Valley High School, is a starter on the CCS men’s basketball team. He has established himself as a presence on the basketball court both as a dominant scoring threat down low and by developing into one of the best shot blockers and rebounders in the league. Danny has shown an ability to be a game changer on both ends of the floor and is willing to do whatever it takes for his team to be successful. Danny has played an integral role in helping the Sasquatch get off to a quick start in East Region play. His accomplishments have carried over into the classroom where he is maintaining a 3.22 grade point average.  Danny hopes to transfer to a four-year university and continue to play basketball.

Congratulations Danny!
