Jeremy Vasquez - Student Athlete of the Month - December 2014

Jeremy Vasquez

Congratulations to Jeremy Vasquez earning the MCC Student-Athlete of the Month honor for December.  The Cary Grove High School graduate is a sophomore for our Men's Baseball Team.

The short stop earned First Team All-Conference Honors last spring as a freshman and batted a .396 average. Finishing last season at 27-16 overall and with a batting average ranked #3 in the nation, the team and Jeremy are looking to pick up where they left off. Jeremy also excelled in the classroom last year with Academic All-Conference honors.

"Jeremy has been a great role model for our younger players in terms of how to be a successful student-athlete, both on and off the field. He is committed to the team and to being a student. This has allowed him to be successful here, and also put him in a position to earn a baseball scholarship at the next level. Jeremy is a high character individual with a bright future ahead of him," explains Head Coach Jared Wacker.

"It is so gratifying to see student-athletes like Jeremy being part our programs and department. He is a high caliber area athlete and student who saw the value in MCC and MCC Athletics. He has now put himself in a great place to earn his degree here and earn an athletic scholarship to offset tuition costs. We are proud of Jeremy and his accomplishments here," adds Athletic Director Karen Wiley.
