College sports: PC picks annual athletic award winners

Halle Watson, Sterling Penniston-John, Casandra White, Nyair Cleveland, Samantha Oliveira and Sunshine Vicente were the recipients of the six major Peninsula College Athletic Awards, presented on June 11 afternoon at the annual Board of Trustees awards event.

“This was a great year in Pirate Athletics, with another Northwest Athletic Conference championship, two league championships and all four teams reaching the playoffs,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life.

“This group of student athletes was really stellar. The six award recipients represented their respective teams at a very high level.”

Halle Watson and Sterling Penniston-John, both of Las Vegas, Nev., were named the female and male Wally Sigmar Award winners for exemplifying leadership, athleticism, academics and citizenship on and off the soccer field.

Casandra White of Modesto, Calif., and Nyair Cleveland of Tacoma, were named the Art Feiro Award winners for the same criteria — leadership, athleticism, academics and citizenship — as they represented the Pirate basketball program.

Peninsula College also annually names two female freshman athletes who exemplify inspiration, dedication, accomplishment and ambassadorship to the William and Annie McMullen Award. This year’s winners are Samantha Oliveira of Porterville, Calif., for soccer, and Sunshine Vicente of Honolulu, Hawaii, for basketball.
