A hot winter and spring for SCU sports

The WCC commends the Women’s Water Polo team, as well as various coaches.

The Santa Clara University Broncos women’s sports teams earned the West Coast Conference’s All-Sports Award for the 2005-06 season, marking the third time SCU has clinched the honor in the last five years. Overall, Santa Clara finished second in the Commissioner’s Cup race to Loyola Marymount, after earning 65 points (in men’s and women’s sports) in 2005-06, 2.5 points behind the Lions.

Since the All-Sports Awards were inaugurated in 2001-02, the Santa Clara women have finished first three times and second twice to establish themselves as a leader in women’s sports in the WCC.

Coaches of the Year

Reflecting the success and persistence of the athletic teams, four SCU head coaches were honored as conference coaches of the year. Volleyball’s Jon Wallace, women’s basketball’s Michelle Bento-Jackson, and men’s golf’s Rob Miller all earned WCC Coach of the Year honors—while on the pool deck, women’s water polo’s Keith Wilbur was named Coach of the Year by the Western Water Polo Association.
