The SCC Panthers softball team scored 24 runs – without allowing any – in a doubleheader shutout sweep of Modesto Junior College on Saturday. They won the opener 18-0, including a 12-run outburst in the seventh inning, to top the Pirates. The Panthers followed that with a 6-0 victory in the nightcap.

Pitcher Kali Sargent tossed a one-hitter in the first game, and Jostyn Bebout shut down Modesto on just four hits in the second game. The Panthers are now 17-4-1 overall and a perfect 5-0 in Big 8 Conference play.

A group of administrators from CK McClatchy High School spent much of March 17 visiting with faculty, administrators and classified staff in the first “Professionals Day” event co-sponsored by the two campuses.

The idea was to share the types of academic programs and pathways each institution has and how the two educational organizations can work closer together for student success.

McClatchy is the closest feeder high school to SCC’s main campus.

Breast Cancer Walk

Women and men will take the noon hour on March 17 to walk around the track at Hughes Stadium in support of Breast Cancer awareness and research, part of Women’s Awareness month at SCC. Show up at the track at noon and walk with cancer survivors and advocates.

So, put on your pink instead of your green (for an hour anyway), and support a good cause.

Los Rios Community College District Trustee Pamela Haynes will be in attendance, as will SCC Interim President Michael Poindexter.

Special Collections

You may not know it, but Sacramento City College is nearing its 100th anniversary.

And SCC has a lot of memorabilia, historical artifacts and photographs dating to the very beginning of the college.

If you are interested in learning more about SCC’s history, take a moment to walk through the “Special Collections” room on the third floor of the Learning Resources Center (LRC). It is open Tuesday through Thursday each week during normal business hours.

Remember, some day your photos and memories will be there, too!

The Special Collections room is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
