While putting up good fights, Sierra walked away with victories. But the overall mood of the evening was one of energy and enthusiasm.

The night also acted as a fundraiser for Coaches vs. Cancer and included a fan shooting contest during half time.

Also during the women’s basketball game, instructors Paula Sheil, Diane Oren and Steve Graham were honored at a “Favorite Teacher Award” celebration.

While all three instructors have unique philosophies and teaching skills, the student-athletes that awarded them expressed the shared appreciation for their passion for the job, with a general love of teaching and the willingness to challenge their students to work for their education.
