Former Shoreline Dolphin Henry McAree Selected by the Miami Marlins http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/2017/07/07/former-shoreline-dolphin-henry-mcaree-selected-by-the-miami-marlins/ http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/2017/07/07/former-shoreline-dolphin-henry-mcaree-selected-by-the-miami-marlins/#respond Fri, 07 Jul 2017 18:18:03 +0000 http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/?p=2658 Former Shoreline Dolphins Baseball Player Henry McAree was recently selected in the 2017 MLB Draft by the Miami Marlins in the 29th round.

McAree had a dominant Shoreline career which was capped off by an NWAC All Region Second Team Award in 2015.  He was a two-year starter for the Phins compiling an 8-5 record with a 2.51 ERA in 111.2 innings, appearing 17 times with 15 starts and one save. He struck out 128 batters and only walked 44. Henry threw a 7 inning no-hitter on May 11, 2013.

Henry pitched two seasons for Lewis-Clark State. In 2016, he had a solid season with a 8-0 record and a 3.00 ERA. The eight wins ranked second on the team. He made 14 appearances, all but one in relief. Henry pitched 39 innings and gave up 34 hits and 13 earned runs, struck out 42 and walked only 9. His top performance came against the College of Idaho on April 9 when he allowed just two hits over five innings. He also struck out four and walked one. In 2017 McAree posted a 2.74 ERA over 23 inning pitched with 38 strikeouts and just 6 walks. Opponents hit just .125 off the 6’2″ right hander.

McAree signed with the Marlins in June and was in fact recently promoted from the Gulf Coast League to Class A Short Season Batavia, a minor league affiliate of the Miami Marlins.

Kaneshiro Steps Down, Reindel Returns as Head Softball Coach http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/2017/05/25/kaneshiro-steps-down-reindel-returns-as-head-softball-coach/ Thu, 25 May 2017 16:54:29 +0000 http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/?p=2604 Head Women’s Softball Coach Kelley Kaneshiro has stepped down in order to pursue other interests outside the college. Coach Kaneshiro has been with the college for the last two years. Her first year she served as an Assistant Coach, and this past year as the Head Coach. We want to thank Coach Kaneshiro for her dedication and hard work. A familiar face will be appointed to the Head Women’s Softball position, Ben Reindel, who was the former Head Softball Coach for two years will take over. Coach Reindel had been at Seattle University this past year and recently was serving as an Assistant Baseball Coach for Shoreline Community College, he has resigned that position to take on his new duties. Kelley Kaneshiro will remain on staff in a volunteer coaching position for the softball program.

Ben Reindel returns to Shoreline from Seattle University.

While at Seattle University, Coach Reindel was an assistant softball coach working with infielders, hitters, recruiting and helping coordinate the defense. Most recently, Reindel was assisting Shoreline Community College baseball coaching hitters.

This will be Coach Reindel’s 3rd season in total as Head Softball Coach at Shoreline. Reindel had previously been the Head Softball Coach at Shoreline Community College for two seasons in 2015 & 2016. He rebuilt a Shoreline program to a top 10 RPI ranking in just 16 months of taking over a program on a yearlong hiatus. Reindel coached 8 All NWAC North Award winners over those two seasons including 5 first teamers. One of those players, Sarah Casel was awarded the NFCA Golden Shoe Award for leading the NWAC in stolen bases with 49 in 2015.

Ben Reindel has coached both softball and baseball over the past 12 years. Before Shoreline, Reindel was the Head Softball Coach at Mt. Rainier High School where he led teams to two playoff berths in three seasons including the school’s first ever district tournament appearance as members of the 4A level. At Mt. Rainier, Reindel coached two Division I players Maylynn Mitchell, a Cal State Northridge All-Big West Infielder and Texas Southern University Pitcher Jasmin Fulmore. Reindel coached high school baseball and football the six seasons prior.

Coach Reindel grew up in Seattle, WA and attended Kennedy Catholic High School and obtained a B.S. in Social Science from Central Washington University. At Kennedy Catholic, Ben was an All-League Outfielder and led the entire league in home runs his senior season.

Ben Reindel is also certified through the Pacific Institute as a PX2® Performance Psychology Facilitator. ‘PX2® is a life-changing experience, promoting positive communication, building stronger relationships and equipping individuals with effective thinking skills that act as a springboard to a successful future.’

Baseball & Softball Season Recap http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/2017/05/25/baseball-softball-season-recap/ Thu, 25 May 2017 16:22:49 +0000 http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/?p=2600 (May 25, 2017) Shoreline, WA- With the spring sports season coming to a close we highlight the top performers for the Dolphin Baseball and Softball teams.

 

The Shoreline Baseball team finished the season with an overall record of 22-19 and 10-14 in league play. Twenty wins in the NWAC North is quite the feat when consistently battling perennial powers like Everett, Edmonds and Bellevue. The NWAC North routinely puts 3 or 4 teams in the top 25 of all West Coast Junior Colleges. Under the leadership this past season from Sophomore’s Korey Longaker, Zach Zurbrugg and David Becker the Dolphins have been put in a good spot to be vaulted to the top of the league in the coming years.

Those three sophomore’s received recognition from the head coaches representing the other North teams. Zach Zurbrugg was voted in as the Gold Glove catcher, an award highlighting the leagues best defensive catcher. Zurbrugg, who will be attending Jamestown University next season recorded zero passed balls and on the season hit .290 with 3 home runs and 18 RBI’s.  David Becker was voted 1st Team All NWAC North Utility Player. Becker was a valuable player for the Phins’ logging innings at First Base, Second Base and Third Base. Becker, who will be attending Univerity of Illinois- Chicago on a baseball scholarship next season finished the year with a .353 batting average and led the North in stolen bases with 26. Korey Longaker was voted as the leagues top defensive centerfielder, also winning the Gold Glove Award. Longaker also was a 1st Team All NWAC North Selection in the outfield as well finished the 2017 season with a batting average of .347, 22 stolen bases and 22 RBI’s.

The Phins Baseball squad return a young pitching staff that will help lead a strong recruiting class toward a North Championship in 2018.

Shoreline Community College Softball had a season of rebuilding after 2016 brought them a birth in the NWAC Championship Tournament and a top 10 RPI ranking at the end of the regular season. A couple sophomore’s from that 2016 team shined again this year. One in particular, Shelby Reyes was honored by the league being voted to the All NWAC North 2nd team as an outfielder. Reyes finished with a batting average of .321 with 2 home runs and 27 RBI’s. Fellow sophomore’s Cheyanne Garcia, Dakota Green, Drew Camacho and Jeralyn Pasoquen finished the season strong as well boasting batting averages of .315, .346, .391 and .283 respectively.

The Phins return 4 players: Maleah Woodley, Hope Lawrence, Khaylie Adachi- Kawamae and Meggan Van Berg. These four sophomore’s combined with a solid recruiting class will make for a fun and exciting 2018 season.

Baseball Sweeps Douglas College http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/2017/05/12/baseball-sweeps-douglas-college/ Fri, 12 May 2017 16:18:27 +0000 http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/?p=2592 By: Ben Reindel

Shoreline, WA (May 12th, 2017)- Entering the last week of the NWAC Spring regular season Baseball faces a critical series this weekend versus Everett after sweeping Douglas College. Softball finishes their season this weekend at Olympic College in Bremerton.

SOFTBALL

Since we last spoke the Lady Phins have cooled down a bit from a nice stretch of play in late April, early May dropping four games this past week to new division rival Highline and to an old familiar foe in Bellevue. Even though the Dolphins did not come out victorious the games were full of energy and competition.

On Wednesday May 3rd the Dolphins traveled to Des Moines, WA to get in a doubleheader amidst the rain drops. In game 1 the Phins struck first with back to back singles in the top of the 3rd by Alyssa Giesbers and Maleah Woodley. After a Highline error, bases were loaded for Dakota Green who singled in Giesbers. Up next an opportunistic Jeralyn Pasoquen advanced to first on a dropped third strike scoring Woodley. Defensively, Hope Lawrence was slicing through the T-Bird order getting into the 5th inning allowing nothing. In the 6th Highline rallied to tie the score at 2. After that, Lawrence battled to get the team in to extra innings. In the 8th after the Phins were unable to push across a run Highline walked off the Phins with a 2- run home run in the bottom of the 8th to win 4-2.

As ‘coach speak’ goes they say athletes need to control what they can control. The Dolphins have battled tough in close ball games all year and as they keep battling the Lady Phins will emerge successful. Their effort and intensity has been something to be a fan of down the stretch and it will eventually pay off. SCC finishes out their season Saturday, May 13th at Olympic College in Bremerton.

BASEBALL

Last week the Shoreline Baseball team played a four game series with neighbor to the north, Douglas College. To keep playoff hopes alive the Phins desperately needed a sweep of the Royals and in dramatic fashion SCC accomplished that goal Monday evening in Vancouver, BC.

The series got a bit of a late start with games in Canada being rained out Saturday. On Sunday at Meridian Park the Phins defeated Douglas in game 1 10-3 behind the pitching performance of Trey Lopez. Lopez threw 8 innings of 8 hits, 3 runs, 1 walk and 6 strikeouts. Lopez has been the steady starter for the Dolphins all year long posting a 3.59 ERA in 62.2 innings. The game was in Douglas’ control as they led 3-1 going into the bottom of the 6th. In the bottom of the 6th the Phins broke out with an 8 run inning to take a 9-3 lead and never look back. Harrison Jacobs was the star of the inning leading it off with a double and later in the inning dropped a 3 run missle over the left center field wall. SCC would tack on another run in the 8th on a Kory Longaker triple then immediately was scored by a David Becker sacrifice.

After taking game 1, the Phins also took game 2 by a final of 7-3. Trevor Clark got the start and went 5 innings giving up 3 runs and striking out 7. Jake Jewell and Brice Foster combined to pitch the final four innings not allowing a run and striking out 6. Brice Foster not only got the final six outs of the game on the mound but also went 2-4 with 3RBI’s at the plate.

The series would shift to Whalley Park in British Columbia Monday. Sean Ferdig got the start for SCC in game 3 and was impressive as the Dolphins sank the Royals 11-2. Ferdig dazzled going 8 innings giving up only 2 runs, striking out 7 and not walking anyone. Outfielder Austin Holm got the offense going getting on base 4 times, going 3-4 with 2 runs scored, a walk and an RBI. David Becker went 3-5 with 2 RBI’s and Zach Zurbrugg went 3-5 with 4 RBI’s as the Dolphins routed the Royals.

Becker put up a lengthy at bat resulting in a line drive single over the third baseman’s head scoring both runners and giving Shoreline the 5-4 lead that Tyler Wingert would protect in the bottom of the 9th securing the series sweep.

With the Dolphins riding the wave of momentum their winning streak is put on the line this weekend against rival Everett. The series is scheduled to start Saturday, 1pm at Everett Memorial. The series will return to Meridian Park Sunday at 12:30pm. The Dolphins hope to send out their Sophomore’s and (Mom’s) the right way!

Go Phins!!

SCC Hires Aaron Mackey as New Head Men’s Basketball Coach http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/2017/05/09/scc-hires-aaron-mackey-as-new-head-mens-basketball-coach/ Tue, 09 May 2017 15:31:34 +0000 http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/?p=2589 Shoreline Community College is proud to announce it’s next Men’s Head Basketball Coach, Aaron Mackey. “Coach Mackey brings a wealth of basketball knowledge to Shoreline, and we are excited about the future of our men’s basketball program under his direction,” said Shoreline Athletic Director Steve Eskridge.

Softball & Baseball Competitive Down the Stretch http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/2017/05/05/softball-baseball-competitive-down-the-stretch/ Fri, 05 May 2017 17:41:51 +0000 http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/?p=2581 By: Ben Reindel

SHORELINE, WA (May 4, 2017) – The rain soaked spring season is winding down and with good weather on the horizon it means jam packed softball and baseball action!

Softball

The Dolphin softball team has been competitive in the second half of their season splitting two out of their last three doubleheaders with wins over Skagit Valley College on April 26th and Everett on May 2nd.

In Shoreline’s two recent victories the Phin’s have a positive run differential of +11. In those two convincible wins SCC compiled 25 hits and 20 runs. Shelby Reyes went for a stat line of 4-7 with a couple doubles to go with a couple RBI’s and a walk. Reyes is hitting .365 on the season and has played some good centerfield. Maleah Woodley was also a key contributor going 6-10 with a couple doubles and a couple RBI’s as well.

 

“Shelby is seeing the ball well right now and staying calm in the batter’s box,” Says Coach Kelley Kaneshiro explaining how Reyes has stayed consistent as a hitter.

To go along with the teams’ quality hitting, Pitcher Dakota Green has gone 2-0 in those two contests with six strikeouts and only two walks combined.

Kaneshiro goes on to talk about Dakota Green’s late season success. “Dakota is an experienced sophomore who has the ability to keep hitters off balance with an arsenal of 7 pitches.”

The Dolphins (4-28) will hope to continue their good play Sunday May 7th against Bellevue College at Meridian Park game time set for 2 and 4pm.

Baseball

Since the last baseball update the Phin’s have been matched up versus #3 Edmonds and #5 Bellevue College. These upcoming games are critical as they jockey for late season playoff push.

Currently, both Edmonds and Bellevue are ranked in the top 20 according to the ABCA West Coast JUCO rankings and both teams respectively are top 5 in the NWAC Under Armour Coaches Poll.

Shoreline competed well taking game three of the four game series on April 16th from Edmonds behind the pitching effort of Trey Lopez. Lopez went 8 innings only allowing 2 runs walking four and striking out four earning the win.

“Trey did a nice job of tying up Edmonds hitters all afternoon,” said SCC Head Coach Dave Snell.

The Phin’s took the lead for good in the bottom of the 3rd inning as Isaiah Patrick led off with a single to get it going. After stealing a base David Becker drives in Patrick and gives Trey Lopez all the support he would need.

The Phin hitters would do enough scratching across 4 runs on 9 hits. Korey Longaker and David Becker both had two hit games and also drove in a run apiece. Isaiah Patrick provided baserunners at the bottom of the order with a couple hits as well. Bryce Foster finished off the victory striking out two hitters in the 9th for his 3rd save.

 

On April 29th Shoreline defeated Bellevue College baseball 7-5 taking game one of the four game series. SCC starter Sean Ferdig would gut out four innings turning the ball over to Tyler Wingert who would go the rest of the way, 5 inning allowing 1 run with 2 K’s. The performance of Tyler WIngert kept the Shoreline offense in the game as they scored 6 runs in the 5th earning Wingert his first win.

The action started as Mitchell Dooley and Korey Longaker led off the top of the 5th inning both reaching on an error. Next, Harrison Jacobs steps up and ropes a double scoring both runners. After Jacobs, Zach Zurbrugg draws a walk which would chase Bellevue starter Josh Thompson.

New BC pitcher Jake Lambro was greeting with a double off the bat of Sheldon Rouzan who earlier in the game hit a solo home run off Thompson. A walk to Chris Watkins would create another BC pitching change and then after another walk Austin Holm would single in both Rouzan and Watkins.

The Dolphins (18-15) would win by a final of 7-5.

SCC travels north of the border to Whalley Park in Vancouver, BC Saturday May 6th to start a four game series with Douglas College before returning Sunday May 7th to Meridian Park for the final two games at 12:30 and 3:30pm.

Come cheer on your Dolphins as they continue their chase for the playoffs. Shoreline currently only trails Skagit Valley College by one game with eight to play.

GO PHINS!

Shoreline Student Athlete Success http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/2017/04/18/shoreline-student-athlete-success/ Tue, 18 Apr 2017 16:35:09 +0000 http://sportsnews.shoreline.edu/?p=2572 Spring Quarter is just getting started but our Shoreline Dolphins Student Athletes are already seeing their hard work in the class room pay off. The following seven Student Athletes have a bright future both on the playing field and in the class room as they move onto 4 year universities.

 

Fall Sports:

Taylor Alexander led the Phins as an outstanding Right Side Hitter for our Women’s Volleyball team. Alexander earned All-NWAC honors in her two seasons at Shoreline. In 2015 Alexander led the Phins to a North Region Championship and in 2016 she was named the North Region Play of the Year. With all her accomplishments on the court perhaps her greatest achievement was in the classroom where Alexander earned a 3.61 GPA during her time at Shoreline and was twice named to the NWAC Fall Sports Academic Excellence team. Alexander received a full scholarship to attend the College of Idaho where she transferred to begin her education following Fall Quarter.

 

Sophomores Tayler Lime and Angel Alcaraz each led the line for their respective Soccer teams during their time at Shoreline. They also led their teams academically. Lime currently holds a 3.49 GPA at Shoreline and has had multiple 4.0 quarters. She joined Alexander on the Fall Sports Academic Excellence team in both her Freshmen and Sophomore seasons. Alcaraz will graduate following Spring Quarter and has a 2.82 GPA. Alcaraz was named to the NWAC All Star game following a season in which he led the Phins with 9 goals and finished in the top 15 of the entire NWAC.

 

Winter Sports:

Enjunay Jones-Lee was the leading scorer for the Women’s Basketball team this past season averaging 17 points per game good enough to finish 13th overall in the NWAC. Jones-Lee was named to the North Region All-Stars First Team and competed in the NWAC All-Star game. Jones-Lee has a 3.89 GPA at Shoreline leading all female Student-Athletes and was named to the NWAC Winter Sports Academic Excellence team in both her seasons at Shoreline.

 

Brady Anderson was an important piece for the North Region Champion Men’s Basketball team while juggling classes at both Shoreline and the University of Washington. Anderson was accepted to the University of Washington Philosophy program following Fall Quarter 2016 at Shoreline. During the thick of the North Region schedule Anderson enrolled at Washington to get a head start on his degree while competing for the Dolphins.

 

Spring Sports:

Cheyanne Garcia battled an injury plagued Freshmen season for Softball but is seeing success in her Sophomore year. Garcia plays Catcher and 1st Base and has had a stellar season a the plate. Garcia is currently hitting .436 and leads the team with 17 hits and 2 home runs. Garcia has a 3.62 GPA in her time at Shoreline and is looking to transfer to Cal State Monterey Bay in the Fall of 2017.

 

David Becker has had arguably the most impressive career at Shoreline both on the baseball field and as a student. Becker has committed to the University of Illinois-Chicago to continue his baseball career and study Criminal Justice. Becker is currently hitting .333 with 6 RBIs and 6 stolen bases. As a Freshmen he was named to the North Region All-Stars 2nd team and the NWAC Spring Sports Academic Excellence team. Becker has an astounding 3.97 GPA and has only receieved a grade below 4.0 in one class during his time at Shoreline.
