College sports: Pirates picked for postseason honors

These Pirates were not quite through plundering.

Peninsula College athletes Alicia Dugan, Alex Baham, Bailie Zuber, Jose Soto, Yamilei Rodriguez and Akari Hoshino were honored at the college’s annual student awards presentation on June 13.

The school’s athletic department each year honors two athletes from each team who exemplify leadership, athleticism, academics and citizenship.

The Art Feiro Award for basketball went to Dugan, a sophomore from Renton, and to Baham, a sophomore from Wasilla, Alaska.

The Wally Sigmar Award for soccer went to Zuber, a sophomore Carson City, Nev., and to Jose Soto, a sophomore from Ontario, Calif.

In addition, Pirate Athletics and the McMullen family annually award the William and Annie McMullen Award to returning female athletes who exemplify inspiration, dedication, accomplishment and ambassadorship. This award went to Rodriguez, a freshman basketball player from Las Vegas, Nev., and to Hoshino, a freshman soccer player from Tokyo, Japan.

The college also recognized Northwest Athletic Conference Coach of the Year Kanyon Anderson.

“We had a great year in athletics, winning our ninth NWAC championship in seven years, capturing two more league titles and getting all four teams into the playoffs — and these athletes were a very big part of our success,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life.

“Our coaches and players work hard to represent the college well, on and off the field, and this was a special group,” Ross said. “Alicia, Alex, Bailie and Jose will all be playing at the four-year level next year and we’re looking forward to following their careers.

“Also congrats again to coach Anderson, who has established himself as the premier women’s soccer coach in the NWAC, and to Yamilei and Akari for their awards. We’re looking forward to more great things from them in 2017-2018.”
