PORT ANGELES – Hundreds of soccer fans from all over Western Washington not only enjoyed five hotly contested soccer matches, but they were treated to great food, beverages and sunny weather at the fourth annual Rumble in the Rainforest Saturday at Sigmar Field on the Peninsula College campus.

The event, a fund-raiser for athletic scholarships, netted $5,000.

“This community continues to astonish me with their support of our athletic programs,” said Rick Ross, Associate Dean for Athletics and Student Life. “Our staff, led by Tim Tucker, put on a great show, with two professional teams and four college teams, and our fans and our sponsors came up big once again. I’m convinced that the five NWAC championships and nine division titles we’ve won in soccer alone over the past five years just wouldn’t have happened without that support.”

The five exhibition soccer matches were all close. The day opened with the Peninsula College men defeating the Olympic Force, a professional team that plays in the Evergreen Premiere League, 2-1. The two Pirate goals came from Victor Sanchez and Kassio Monteiro.

PORT ANGELES – Peninsula College’s Alison Crumb was named Northwest Athletic Conference Women’s Basketball Coach of the Year.

Crumb, a Port Angeles native, guided her Pirates to an NWAC championship in March, the first in the history of women’s basketball at Peninsula College.

“This award is very deserving,” said Rick Ross, Director of Athletics. “Ali has worked very hard for five years to build her program and I’m thrilled that her fellow coaches in the NWAC voted to recognize her growth and her success.”

Crumb’s 2014-15 Pirates went 13-1 in North Division play to capture Peninsula’s second North championship in school history, the first coming in 2005 when the Port Angeles graduate started at point guard for the Pirates. Her team went 23-5 overall, including four straight wins at the 2015 NWAC Women’s Basketball Championship Tournament at the Toyota Center in Kennewick.

The Pirates were ranked No. 4 in the Final Alaska Airlines NWAC Coaches Poll, but they upset top-ranked Umpqua in the semifinals and then defeated sixth-ranked Lane, a team that beat the Pirates twice earlier in the season, in the championship game.

PORT ANGELES, Washington (April 8, 2015) – On the heels of a Northwest Athletic Conference (NWAC) win by Peninsula College’s women’s basketball team, the college was honored as the Port Angeles Chamber of Commerce Business of the Month.

“This award is a testament to the career development and hard work of head coach Alison Crumb, a Peninsula College and Port Angeles High School graduate, and her staff, that includes Ali’s former player Danika (Goodwin) Johnson and Ali’s former high school coach Mike Knowles,” Rick Ross, director of student programs and athletics said following the April 6th honor. “Those athletes are outstanding students, they have given a tremendous amount to the youth in our community, they are active outside the gym on our campus and in our community and they are truly outstanding role models for this area’s young female athletes. I couldn’t be happier that this group of young ladies captured Peninsula’s first-ever women’s basketball championship.”

The Women’s NWAC basketball championship was the first in Peninsula College history for that sport, which began in 1996-97. Alison Crumb took over as head coach of the team in 2009. The win marked her first North Division title as a coach - she won it as a player in 2005 - and the first NWAC title in women’s basketball at PC.

As members of the NWAC, comprised of 35 community colleges in Washington and Oregon, Peninsula College athletic teams finished first, second, third and tied for fourth in the Conference this year.
