The CCCAA oversees intercollegiate competition at the 104 member colleges and nearly 27,000 CCCAA student athletes each year.
Softball player Amanda Rupert was selected for the 2011 Scholar Athlete Women’s Honor Roll, having earned a 4.0 GPA at LMC. Rupert grew up in Antioch and graduated in the spring of 2011 with an associate of arts degree in liberal arts – arts and humanities.
She is now on active duty with the U.S. Army. She graduated with honors from boot camp and is currently in advanced individual training at Fort Lee in Virginia.
Football player Aaron Hall was selected for the 2011 Scholar Athlete Men’s Honor Roll, having earned a GPA of 3.78. Prior to his time at LMC, he played football at Antioch High School. He currently attends Missouri Southern State University, where he majors in kinesiology. While at LMC, Hall was captain of the football team and set a school season record of five blocked field goals.
“Again, we have two student-athletes from Los Medanos College who are being recognized at the state level as scholar athletes,” said Athletic Director Richard Villegas. “This is a testament to our athletic department and our counseling department of putting our student-athletes on the right path to succeed academically.”
Rupert and Hall, along with the other 2011 Honor Roll and Scholar Team award winners, will be honored at the Celebration of Scholar Athletes Luncheon at the 15th Annual CCCAA Convention on April 4 in Sacramento.
