Championship & Award-Winning Students at BC3

April 24, 2018

What a weekend for Pennsylvania’s two-time No. 1 community college – Butler County Community College!

The BC3 Pioneer Softball team captured its third consecutive Western Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference (WPCC) Championship on Saturday by beating Garrett College 7-6 at Laura Doerr Park in Saxonburg. Special congratulations to Jessi Reed, Alyssa Dailey, Ashley Coon and Nikki Houk for being selected for the All-Conference Team, and to BC3’s Dan Beebe, who in his first season was selected as the WPCC Coach of the Year. The Pioneers will travel to Arnold, Maryland this weekend to defend the program’s first National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Division III Region XX crown.

The Rho Phi Chapter of Phi Theta Kappa at BC3, the prestigious international academic honor society, claimed two awards at a conference in Kansas City, Missouri. Rho Phi was recognized as a Middle States Gold Chapter and awarded for the Best Completion event in Pennsylvania. Joining me at the conference were Rho Phi co-advisors Morgan Rizzardi and Amanda Fleming; Rho Phi President Chris Slay; Rho Phi Vice President Megan Marnic; and Rho Phi Secretary Jacob Hetrick.

Congratulations to our wonderful students, coaches and advisors! I am Pioneer Proud!
