YVCC Basketball Host Sophomore Recognition Former Coach Ellwood Crosier will be Honored


The Yakima Valley Community College sophomore basketball players will be joined by former Yak Coach Ellwood Crosier during recognition ceremonies on Saturday, Feb. 16 at Sherar Gymnasium.

The Yaks will be hosting Blue Mountain Community College in their last games of the season with the women tipping off at 2:00 p.m. The men’s game begins at 4:00 p.m.

The Ellwood Crosier Basketball Court in Shear Gymnasium was officially dedicated in September with the unveiling of his name on the newly conditioned court. On Feb. 16, Athletics Director Ray Funk will unveil the Crosier Court plaque which will be on permanent display in the front foyer of Sherar Gymnasium.

The sophomore basketball players will be recognized following the women’s game and Coach Crosier will be introduced at half time of the men’s game. Friends and family are invited to gather in the lobby at the gymnasium immediately following the men’s game.

In addition, Crosier, who is a member of the Parker Youth and Sports Foundation (PYSF), will present the PYSF donation to the YVCC baseball team for the annual Baseball Coaches Award Scholarship. This year’s recipient is YVCC sophomore Reid Martinez. The Coaches Award is an NWACC Athletic Scholarship presented to a returning sophomore baseball player as selected by the YVCC baseball coaches.

The scholarship is funded by the Faller-Brayton Endowment fund that is administered by the Parker Youth & Sports Foundation. The Endowment has been created in recognition of long-time former YVCC baseball and Hall of Fame Coaches, Bill Faller and Chuck ‘Bobo’ Brayton.
