Peninsula College honored athletes Kelly Kevershan, Jose Serna, Jamellia Clark, Trent Warren, Cindy Vasquez and Jocelyn Moore at the College’s student awards ceremony at 2:00 pm, Tuesday, June 12, at the Cornaby Center.
Each year the Pirate Athletic Department honors a male and female athlete from each sport for the Wally Sigmar and Art Feiro awards, recognizing athletes who exemplified leadership, athleticism, academics and citizenship.
The Wally Sigmar Award for soccer went to Kevershan, a sophomore from Tucson, Arizona, and to Serna, a freshman from Cowiche, Washington.
The Art Feiro Award for basketball went to Clark, of Las Vegas, Nevada, and to Warren, of Melbourne, Australia, both sophomores.
In addition, the college annually recognizes two athletes for an award established by the McMullen family for returning female athletes who exemplified inspiration, dedication, accomplishment and ambassadorship during their freshman year. The William and Annie McMullen Award goes to Vasquez, a sophomore soccer player from Leavenworth, Washington, and to Moore, a freshman basketball player from Coulee Dam, Washington.
“We had an outstanding group of student athletes this year and thus had many choices for these awards, but this group of six young women and men are pretty special,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life. “Their contribution to their teams, the College and our community is quite remarkable.”
The awards were named after the late Dr. Wally Sigmar, a hall of fame soccer coach and former PC President, the late Art Feiro, a hall of fame athletic director who founded athletics at Peninsula in the early 1960s, and for William and Annie McMullen, who’s family established a trust, and an award, at the College to contribute to athletic scholarships.
