YVCC to Honor Former Basketball Coach
YVCC to dedicate the Sherar Gym floor as Ellwood Crosier Court
Yakima Valley Community College will host a dedication ceremony on September 13, at 3:30pm in Sherar Gymnasium. The Board of Trustees has approved the naming of YVCC’s gym floor as Ellwood Crosier Court in honor of longtime men’s and women’s basketball coach and instructor Ellwood Crosier.
During a distinguished 37 year career at YVCC, Crosier served as a head men’s basketball coach, head women’s basketball coach, and as a psychology instructor. He completed his 24 year coaching career with over 500 wins, making him one of the most successful coaches in the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges. His teams won four NWAACC titles, two each for the men and women.
The event is open to the community. A reception will follow the dedication ceremony. For additional information contact the Community Relations Office at 509.574.6870. Follow YVCC athletics at www.yvcc.edu/athletics.
