Excellence in Academics, Athletics and Citizenship

Our athletic mission is to strive to win championships, to academically prepare our student athletes for opportunities at the next level, and to teach and model the principles of good citizenship. Pirate athletes will participate in community service activities, leadership development, youth sports camps and clinics, and a variety of student life opportunities to better prepare them for success in sports - and in life.

Pirate Casino Night is SOLD OUT!

Peninsula College sports fans will have the opportunity to raise scholarships for student athletes at the annual Pirate Casino Night, coming up February 19. The event is now sold out.

The 2016 Pirate Casino Night, one of Peninsula’s major annual athletic fund raising events, will feature comedian Brad Upton, as well as a live auction, a silent auction, casino games, a buffet dinner and desert, an open bar, and a few words from former Peninsula College soccer player Angel Guerra, a goal keeper from Wenatchee who helped the Pirates win back-to-back Northwest Athletic Conference championships in 2012 and 2013.

“This event, along with our Pirate Golf Tournament, are the primary fund raisers for athletic scholarships,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life. “Coach Mitch Freeman and his Pirate Casino Night committee have put together a very entertaining evening. Fans who have enjoyed Peninsula’s success on the soccer field and the basketball court, can help us continue that success by simply coming to this event.”

Between soccer and basketball, in the last six years, the Pirates have won eight NWAC championships, 10 divisional titles, and have garnered top 10 national rankings.

“Pirate Casino Night is a great value on its own,” Ross added. “You can enjoy a great meal, adult beverages, a world class comedian, casino games and an auction without driving to Seattle and spending the night. Jerry Allen and 7 Cedars Casino has underwritten this event so that most of the proceeds go toward athletic scholarships.”

Pirates win thrilling NWAC Championship

While the Pirates were celebrating in the middle of the field following their thrilling victory in the 2015 Northwest Athletic Conference Men’s Soccer Championship Sunday, head coach Cale Rodriguez was 30 yards away, tears in his eyes, staring up at the Starfire scoreboard that read: “Peninsula 4, Spokane 3 with 0:00 showing on the clock.”

The first-year head coach from Redlands, California, had successfully completed what head coaches often spend careers trying to accomplish. He had just guided the Peninsula College men to a championship. It was the Pirates’ fourth NWAC title in six years – and it was a battle.
