Sharay Trotter, one of the members of the South Puget Sound Community College (SPSCC) women’s basketball team, continues to show she’s one of the top offensive threats in the Northwest Athletic Conference after the freshman averaged 20 points during the SPSCC-hosted NWAC Crossovers December 16-18 at the Health & Wellness Center.

Trotter, who scored a career-high 25 points in the Clippers’ 72-66 loss to Clark College, was the second-leading scorer during the three-game event, trailing only the 70 combined points put up by Peninsula’s Emilia Long.

SPSCC went 1-2 over the three-day crossovers with its lone victory coming against Columbia Basin Community College.

The Clippers opened the three-game crossovers with a 68-56 setback against Peninsula College, which went 3-0 during the event to improve its overall record to 9-2. Nikeshia King came off the bench to lead the SPSCC offense with 14 points. Payten Foster and Trotter both notched double-doubles for the Clippers with Foster scoring 13 points and pulling down 10 rebounds and Trotter finishing with 12 points and 10 boards.

Trotter equaled a career high with 23 points in the Clippers 69-56 victory over Columbia Basin in the second game of the NWAC Crossovers. Trotter, who also struck for 23 points in SPSCC’s season opening win against Skagit Valley, hit 10 of her 15 shots from field and added four rebounds, three assists, two blocks and a steal. The Clippers also received 15 points and five rebounds from Kayla Jackson and 13 points and a game-high 11 rebounds from Foster against the Hawks.

Trotter, who is second in the conference in scoring at 19 points per game, proceeded to establish a new career benchmark against Clark. The Clippers also received 15 points from Jackson and 9 points and 11 rebounds from Foster against the Penguins.

Up next for South Puget Sound Community College is a trip to Mount Vernon where the Clippers will participate in the three-day Skagit Valley College Holiday Tournament. SPSCC will face Big Bend College on December 28 before playing Everett College and Douglas College of British Columbia.
