The Community Colleges of Spokane has won a major athletic title.
After winning conference titles in six sports, the Sasquatch earned enough points to claim the National Alliance of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators Cup.
The honor was announced Wednesday by the Northwest Athletic Conference. The cup will be presented in Dallas on Monday to CCS athletic director Ken Burrus.
Over the past three years the NWAC has been competing against institutions from the National Junior College Athletic Association and the California Community College Athletic Association for the national award.
After taking third in the national standings in 2013-14 and second last year, Spokane won the title on the strength of NWAC titles in men’s and women’s cross country, women’s soccer, men’s basketball, men’s golf and women’s track and field. CCS had second-place finishes in men’s soccer and men’s track and field.
CCS also finished fourth in the final standings for the national Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup.
