The Community Colleges of Spokane’s Male Scholar-Athlete of the Month for November is David Jacob, a freshman from Medical Lake.  David was a late addition to the team this fall and did not actually race until the middle of October, where he ran the first 8k race of his collegiate career at the University of Idaho Invitational in 25:55.  He followed that up the next week with another solid race at the LCSC Invite where he placed 14th overall in 26:39.  Finally, he came up huge for the Sasquatch at the NWAACC championship meet in Battle Ground on November 14th.  David ran another solid race going out in the front of the pack and staying there finishing 7th overall while grabbing the final All-American spot and becoming the 46th CCS All-American in the past 13 years.  David is also a fine example of the term student-athlete as he carries a 3.43 G.P.A. in Criminal Justice and plans to one day become a police officer.

Congratulations David!
