Trail Blazers Spotlight

This month, the Trail Blazers spotlight shines on Allie Cacy.  She is the recipient of the soccer program's highest honor, the Trail Blazers Scholar Athlete Award!  Recipients of this award embody excellence in three key areas: Academics, athletics and leadership. In her two years as a starting midfielder, Allie overwhelmingly met all three criteria!

Allie entered MCC-Blue River with an amazing work ethic, which translated into a diligent, determined scholar-athlete.    At the end of last semester, Allie had maintained a 3.75 GPA and is currently on track to earn National Junior College Athletic Association Academic All American honors.  On the field, she was extremely vocal in encouraging her team mates.  As team captain, she led through service, humility and over the top positive instruction.  No one can question the genuine heart of this player and her desire to push her teammates and herself to maximize their potential.  Allie's leadership and level of play will serve her well if she chooses to play at the next level, as she is someone that coaches recognize as adding value to a program.  She is extremely coachable and a key member of a team that made the Blue River program’s third appearance in the NJCAA Region 16 Final.  Through humility, service and positivity, she has motivated others to be good students, good players and good people.

Trail Blazers make the grade in the classroom in 2013-2014

The Trail Blazers women's team continues to shine in the classroom.  Each year, the women's program averages around a 3.0 cumulative team GPA.  The 2013 team is continuing this trend!  The women's team posted a cumulative team GPA average of 3.02, narrowly beating out the 2.92 men's team average.  More impressively, 91% of the women met NJCAA eligibility standards, 78% earned at least a 2.5 GPA, 52% earned at least a 3.0 GPA and 26% earned at least a 3.5 GPA!  

The women's team is made up of character driven athletes who are serious about their academic success.  They bought into all aspects of the program's demands.  At MCC-Blue River, incoming freshman take part in a weekly college success class taught by an academic advisor.  The class contains information about time management, financial aid, study skills, a Q&A session with former players, the creation of a two year plan, three one-on-one meetings and three grade checks throughout the semester. Free tutoring in the academic resource center is also available for all students.  The women's team took advantage of all these resources, studied hard and earned great grades!
