NJCAA Recognizes Wildcats' Academic Achievements

The Western Nevada Community College baseball team finished their second season by winning ten straight postseason games, including two National Junior College Athletic Association World Series contests, and capturing a Western Regional Championship and a Region XVIII Championship along the way. During this incredible run, the players worked just as hard in the classroom as they did on the diamond. The NJCAA recognized this fact and named Western as one of their 2007 spring Academic Teams of the Year.

The Wildcats were ranked No. 22 in the nation with a 3.06 cumulative grade point average. "Academic and athletic success go hand in hand," said Head Coach D.J. Whittemore. "I'm extremely proud of their hard work. We spent 44 games and 50 nights on the road."

Four players were also named to the college's Spring 2007 Dean's List: Jake Bottari, Pat Grennan, Andrew Reid, and Kevin Schlange. Eligible students must complete at least 12 credits for the semester with a 3.5 or higher grade point average.

This marks the second year that the Wildcats have earned NJCAA recognition for academic success.
