Turner Conrad was named the Orange County Collegiate League All-Star Game MVP

More than a dozen Westmont baseball players are honing their skills this summer as they compete in summer leagues from California to Alaska to Ohio.

Junior Turner Conrad is playing for the Long Beach Legends Red of the Orange County Collegiate League (OCCL). Conrad, who is hitting .313 with 10 RBIs, was named to the OCCL North All-Star team and earned MVP honors when he delivered a three-RBI double to secure the victory for the North.

Also playing in the OCCL are sophomores Matt Stumme and River Fawley. Stumme is playing for the Long Beach Legends Blue team and hitting .288 with six RBIs. Fawley is a member of the Bulldogs.

Juniors Russell Harmening and Steven Pollex made their way north to compete in the Alaska Baseball League (ABL). Pollex is playing for the Chugiak Chinooks of Anchorage, which is an Athletes in Action team. Pollex, who is hitting .320 with 13 RBIs, was named to the ABL National League All-Star Team.

Westmont Volleyball Coach Patti Cook has announced the addition of three incoming freshman to her roster for the 2014 season – Taylor Beckman of Lake Oswego, Oregon, Lindsay Paulo of Riverside and Mila Maricic of Harbor City.

“I am thrilled to have this strong group of freshmen joining us,” said Cook. “They are an athletic class who has succeeded on the court and in the classroom and bring a high level of volleyball to an already solid group of returners.

“I know each of them have high expectations for what they want to accomplish during their time here at Westmont,” continued Cook. “They are both highly competitive and personable so I anticipate that they will hit the ground running when they join us in the fall.”

Kolby McInally

Westmont Soccer has announced the signing of Kolby McInally from La Habra High School for the upcoming 2014 season. An All-Freeway League first team selection, McInally scored 12 goals for the Highlanders in his senior season and produced five assists.

“We are delighted to add Kolby to our incoming class,” said Westmont head coach Dave Wolf. “Kolby has worked very hard in all areas of his life to have arrived at this place. He’s a dangerous attacking player, and someone who will torment GSAC defenders. We have known Kolby for almost two years, and we are confident that he will take every advantage of the opportunity to come to Westmont.”

As a member of the Strikers FC Whittier, McInally travelled to Argentina to participate in the 2014 Buenos Aires International Soccer Tournament (BA Cup). The team finished third in the club team tournament.

Becky Collier

Westmont’s Becky Collier, who just completed her freshman year, placed fifth at the USA Track and Field Junior Outdoor Combined Events Championship and in the process set a new school record of 4,988 points. Collier was the only NAIA athlete to compete at the event.

“USA Track & Field has designed the Junior Championship to identify young, up and coming talent at the highest level,” noted Westmont assistant coach Josh Priester. “Becky certainly demonstrated that she is among the top athletes in her age group in the United States.”

Collier improved her previous best point total set at the NAIA National Championships in May by 117 points. The Riverside resident earned NAIA All-American honors at the national championship meet with a fourth place finish.

Her indoor season included a fifth-place finish in the pentathlon and a seventh-place finish in the high jump. In all, Collier earned four NAIA All-American awards and set two school records during her freshman campaign.

Cryo

Coach Kirsten Moore was called out to “chill for charity” in support of the Kay Yow Cancer Fund. She rose to the challenge by chillin’ at -220 degrees Fahrenheit for two minutes at The Lab’s cryo-sauna. She has challenged four other NAIA coaches to pay it forward and chill for charity.

For some people, being involved with USA Basketball creates an opportunity to travel the world and broaden horizons. For John Moore, the order was reversed.

In Moore’s case, spending his childhood years in another part of the world created an opportunity to become involved with USA Basketball and cement a love of the game that would shape his life forever.

Moore, the longtime and very successful head men’s basketball coach at Westmont College in Santa Barbara California, was in Colorado Springs, Colorado, earlier this week to serve as a court coach for the 2014 USA Basketball Men’s U18 National Team training camp. This was Moore’s second stint as a USA Basketball court coach (he worked previously with the 2002 USA Men’s U18 National Team). He’s been a college coach for more than 30 years, following his playing days at Westmont. And it all started when he was a kid growing up in Japan – and his family played host to the U.S. Olympic Men’s Basketball Team at the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo.

Westmont Retains All-Sports Award, Places 19th in Learfield Cup

GSAC&Learfield-Cup

In a very close result, Westmont Athletics will hold on to the Golden State Athletic Conference All-Sports Award presented by Duke’s Restaurant in Huntington Beach. The Warriors averaged 6.83 points, edging out Concordia by 0.02 points in the final standings.

“The GSAC all-sports award is especially pleasing because it is our second in a row and for me establishes that we are a well-rounded and consistently solid athletic program,” said Westmont athletic director Dave Odell. “Our aim is to field competitive teams in every sport we’ve chosen to compete and this award demonstrates that we are doing this.

“I am especially pleased that with success on the field, we were also able to achieve strong results in the classroom,” noted Odell. “The fall semester GPA average for student-athletes was higher than any previous semester. Achieving within the academic rigors of Westmont, while being a full-time athlete, is quite a growing experience. I am quite proud of the way our student-athletes approach their business on and off the field.”
