2010-11 April Scholar-Athletes of the Month

DJ Johnson


Brooks Guetlin

The Community Colleges of Spokane’s Female Scholar-Athlete of the Month for April is DJ Johnson.  DJ, a graduate of Hellgate High School in Missoula, Montana, is a sophomore on the CCS softball team.  She has won 16 games for the Sasquatch and has a 2.59 earned run average.  DJ has compiled 130 strikeouts in 184 innings pitched.  Coach Janet Skaife said, “DJ is such a hard worker in the classroom and on the field. She spends more hours on the field than any player in our program.  We called on her to pitch every game this season and she rose to the challenge.  Unfortunately in a game on April 30th, DJ broke her leg and will be out for the remainder of the season.  But, because of her success on the mound, she has left us in a position to qualify for the NWAACC Championships.”  DJ is also committed to her academic success.  She is maintaining a 3.52 grade point average and will earn her A.A. degree at the end of spring quarter.  DJ plans to continue her studies in fire science and is looking to continue her softball career at the four-year level.

Congratulations DJ!


The Community Colleges of Spokane’s Male Scholar-Athlete of the Month for April is Brooks Guetlin.  Brooks, from South Whidbey High School, is in his sophomore season on the CCS men’s golf team.  Brooks has established himself as one of the most consistent players on Spokane’s team, shooting many scores that have contributed to the team’s success.  Most recently he shot rounds of 76-78 at the tricky Bandon Dunes Golf Resort, helping the team capture the regular season NWAACC championship.  Head Coach Scott Kramer described Brooks as the ultimate Sasquatch.  “Brooks has left a lasting impact on the Sasquatch golf program with his energy, enthusiasm and dedication.  Brooks is a great teammate and the type of person that we wish could stick around for two more years.”  Brooks has also excelled in the classroom with a 3.35 cumulative grade point average.  He will enroll at Eastern Washington University in the Fall of 2011 and pursue his bachelor’s degree.

Congratulations Brooks!
