SPOKANE, WA -- The Cougars got terrific performances form both their men and women's squads on Monday and Tuesday in Spokane to claim second place finishes for both teams. Host Spokane men and women entered the championships as heavy favorites and cruised to team titles - so the battle for the rest of the ten Northwest squads was on second place.


The CCC women finished with 174 pts, 76 pts behind Spokane and 29 pts ahead of rival Lane who claimed the Southern Region title just over a week ago in Eugene. The men finished with 148 pts, 119 pts behind Spokane and 14 pts ahead of the Lane men who also won the region title.


The Cougars had 35 season best performances (21 women's and 14 men's) and 14 CCC top-10 performances (4 Men; 10 Women)‪.


The combined co-ed score ties highest finish in 11 years and ties best even finish between genders since 1994.


CCC men earned 16 top three finishes from 10 different athletes in 11 events and two individual championships from two athletes including a team championship in the 4x400m race (Junior College All-American honors are awarded to top three placers).


The ladies collectively earned 22 top three finishes from 9 different athletes in 13 events including four individual championships from two athletes.


Sophomore Dominick Walker claimed the 100m Hurdles title and finished third in the Long Jump. After placing third in the 100m Hurdles preliminaries on Monday, Walker smoked the league's season best mark of 15.14 seconds with a time of 15.11 seconds to earn the win Tuesday.  Sophomore James Ratliff, who established the regular season top mark, took second by duplicating that effort.


Ratliff did, however, claim his own title in the 400m Hurdles with a league season best time of 52.53 seconds and was a member of the winning 4x400m team made up of Ratliff, sophomore Chris Olsen, and freshmen Kyle Vuksich & Zach Rial. Ratliff also took third in the Decathlon back on May 3rd in Eugene.


The men's 4 x 400 time is the 2nd fastest all-time in CCC track & field history.


Olsen and Ratliff were also members of CCC's championship 4x400m team from 2010.


For his stellar performance, Ratliff was named the Co-Outstanding Male Track Athlete along with Spokane's Spencer Wordell.


Sophomore Keisa Monterola and freshman Katie Higgins won two titles each in the women's events. 


Monterola, the reining NWAACC champion in the Pole Vault and Long Jump, repeated her titles by smashing her personal best in the vault and besting her season mark in the LJ.  Monterola topped her previous mark of 14-01.75" in the vault with a mark of 14-02.50" which is second on the CCC all-time list behind Becky Holliday who still holds the Nation's top junior college mark of 14-04' set in 2001.  Monterola bettered her Venezuelan National record in the vault and almost cleared a bar that would have set the new national junior college record and would have been a provisional clearance for the Olympics.


Higgins also turned in a personal best to take the Discus title with a toss of 136-08" and a personal & league season best in Hammer Throw (160-02") to earn her second title.


Monterola and Higgins were named the NWAACC Women's Co-Outstanding Field Athletes.

VANCOUVER, WA -- Keisa Monterola was named the NWAACC Women's Field Athlete of the Week by league officials Thursday.


Monterola, a sophomore from Caracas, Venezuela, was the 2009 NWAACC Champion in the pole vault and long jump. She is looking to reclaim those titles this season after red shirting the 2010 season. Monterola won the PV at the Oregon Relays this past weekend in Eugene with a vault of 13' 9.75", a mark only surpassed by Cougar great and 2003 NCAA National Champion Becky Holliday (U. of Oregon).  Holliday holds the CCC school record of 14' 4"record set in 2001.

Monterola's personal record is 14'1", a mark set during her time with the Venezuela Junior National team. She took first place at the 2005 Pan American Junior Athletics Championships. She also won the gold medal at the 2010 Central American and Caribbean Games where she helped lead Venezuela to a second place finish (of 32 nations) at the games.


Monterola is also the favorite to repeat as the NWAACC long jump champion in 2011. She has the current best mark in the event this season with a leap of 17-5.25". Her personal best is 18-4.07" set at the Southern Region Championships in 2009.

Cougs crown 5 NWAACC Champions & 33 All-Americans

Spokane, WA -- The NWAACC Championships was a meet where everything came together.  There were 13 CCC all-time performances over the two days as well as 56 lifetime and season personal bests.  "The athletes competed with purpose," stated Head Coach Keoni McHone.  This year was a tie for the best between gender finish in 15 years and the highest finish on the men's side in 8 years. 


The teams went into the championships hoping for big performances and they delivered.  Jennifer Roberts led the women's team with her efforts in the relays, jumps and sprints having already finished All-American in the heptathlon.  Livia Mahaffie also carried the load by placing 2nd in both hurdle races and running on both All-American relays.  Emma Buchholz really lit a fire under the team after she had a 12 foot personal record to move up a few places to collect second and missing a championship title by only 3 inches.


The men's team had many members that contributed a high number of points.  The throws contention of Anthony Lantz, Shaun Lemafa and John Chisman took care of business in the weight throws.  Kenny Echternkamp showed his colors by throwing a 15 foot personal best in the javelin to collect an individual champion on the men's side.  Ethan Moore carried the men's team in the jumps, short relay and 100 meters, while James Ratliff also took care of business in the hurdles finishing second in both and running on the 1st place 4 x 400 relay.  Ratliff also finished 4th in the decathlon 3 weeks earlier. 


"I was impressed with the focus the team had from when we loaded up at Clackamas to the end of the meet.  There was a feeling of positive expectation I got from this team, and it showed in the results," says Coach McHone.  He is excited about the direction the program is moving and can not wait for next season.
