SCC Baseball Has First .500 Season In 23 Years
With Olympic College forfeiting two games to Shoreline Community College Baseball Team on Sunday, the Dolphins finished the regular season 21-21-1. The last SCC Baseball Team to finish .500 was the 1990 team that was 19-18.
On Sunday, Olympic College showed up at Meridian Park thinking the game was suppose to start at 1:00pm instead of the scheduled 3:00pm time. Olympic would not stay or comeback to the park to play the games.
SCC Athletics sent all teams playing SCC Baseball at home this season an email on January 28th, stating that SCC home baseball games were at 3:00pm. The OC baseball coach responded to the email. The games were called forfeits by the NWAACC Office.
The Dolphins were 9-15 in the NWAACC Northern Region and was in playoff contention until a four game sweep by Skagit Valley College ended those hopes last weekend. 3 of those games were 1 run defeats and the 4th, by 2 runs.
Congratulations SCC Baseball, for the best season in 23 years.

Skagit Valley Sweep of SCC Baseball Leaves NWAACC Playoffs A Long Shot For Dolphins
A tough weekend for SCC Baseball has left the hopes of a NWAACC Playoff bid a very long shot with the last weekend of Northern Region play schedule for this this weekend against Olympic College.
SCC is now 4 games out of 4th place with 4 games to play and the Dolphins need to win all four games this weekend and have Bellevue lose all four games to Skagit Valley to force a tie between between SCC and Bellevue and have Douglas College lose at least 3 of 4 games to Edmonds CC and force a 3 way tie with Bellevue or for Edmonds to beat Douglas College four times and leave BC and SCC tied. SCC is 6-14 in the region, Bellevue is 10-10 and Douglas is 9-11.
On Saturday, SCC lost 1-0 to Skagit Valley in 14 innings, and 7-6 with a walkoff single with 2 outs in the 9th to score the lone run of the game.
On Sunday, SCC lost 2-1 and 4-2 in Skagit:
Game 1 - SCC's Nic Van Der Van was dominant, just allowing 2 hits, but walked 6 along with 6 strikeouts and the SCC defense had 3 errors. SVC went ahead in the 5th with a run, the Dolphins tied it in the 6th, but the Cardinals scored in the top of 7th and SCC was not able to respond.
Game 2 - SCC ace Jason Shaw was on the mound and had shut down
SVC through 6 innings, as the Dolphins took the lead in the bottom of 6th with 2 runs. A controversial top of the 7th inning was played as SCC Pitching Coach Dave Snell was ejected from the game on a visit to the mound and then SCC Head Coach Ryan Browne was ejected after an argument over play at the plate. Shaw gave up three runs, but only 1 earned in the inning, as the SCC defense committed 2 of their 3 errors in that inning.
Shaw pitched 6 & 1/3 innings, allowed 5 hits, with 3 walks and 5 strikeouts. He was taken out of the game in the 7th inning. SVC scored another run in the 8th inning and SCC could not muster a rally and lost 4-2. Kainoa Ahsing-Kaahanui led the SCC offense by going 4-4 in the second game with 1 RBI and 1-2 in the first game with a RBI as well.
SCC is now 18-20-1 on the season, the first time all season they have been below .500. Skagit Valley improved to 20-15 overall and 11-9 in the region. SCC plays Olympic College next weekend, with the first doubleheader being played in Bremerton on Friday, starting at 5:00pm. Game time on Sunday is 3:00pm at Meridian Park in Shoreline.
