Doug Thomas led the team with 15.9 points per game and he and teammate Ryan Parks were named All-Cascade Conference team following the season.

Women’s Basketball

It was a rough season for Lady Knights basketball as the team ended the year with a 6-23 record. Jordan Wilcox made 61 three pointers during the season, and was voted Honorable Mention All-Cascade Conference. Senior Jacki Cannon was named Academic All-Cascade Conference.

Golf

The WPC golfers began their spring season with a trip to the Corban Invitational in Salem, Oregon. Freshman Malu Rosenthal turned in his best ever result by placing 7th overall.

Track

Deborah O’Dell and Christi Avery represented the Knights at the NAIA Indoor National Championships. Deborah O’Dell placed 12th in the high jump event by clearing a height of 5 feet 3 inches, while Avery placed 19th in the 60 meters in a time of 7.91 seconds.

Warner Pacific is Part of Oregon Private College Week (July 28 – August 1)

The Alliance to Host Oregon Private College Week

Register now to visit Warner Pacific

Prospective students are invited to participate in Oregon Private College Week from July 28 – August 1, hosted by the Oregon Alliance of Independent Colleges & Universities (The Alliance).

OPCW_IDtag2Oregon’s private, non-profit, regionally accredited colleges and universities support educational attainment for Oregon’s socio-economically diverse population with 21% of their undergraduates being the first in their family to attend college, and 31% qualifying for federal Pell Grants based on income.

The private sector campuses make indispensable contributions to Oregon’s communities and our state’s 40-40-20 education attainment goals by awarding 22% of baccalaureate degrees in such high-need fields as STEM, business, public administration and social service, and half or more of graduate degrees in health professions, education, and business. Moreover Alliance institutions contribute 30% of the bachelor’s degrees and higher portion of the 40-40-20 attainment goal.

Colleges will offer campus tours and information sessions about admissions, financial aid and academic programs. College officials will also correct some common myths about the cost of a private college education.

Students who visit at least four institutions during the week will receive four application fee waivers. Students may use these fee waivers to apply to any four Alliance colleges or universities.

“Personally visiting campuses is one of the most important steps in the college search process,” explains Larry D. Large, President of The Alliance. “I encourage students and their families to explore which college or university is the best match. And I want to reassure them that a high-quality education at an Oregon private college or university is affordable.”

Sessions will begin at 9 am and 2 pm on Monday through Friday. For more information about Oregon Private College Week, including a list of participating colleges and to register, please visit www.oregonprivatecolleges.com.

In-state students attending an Oregon private college or university are eligible for the Oregon Opportunity Grant. A program of the State of Oregon, the Oregon Opportunity Grant will be approximately $2,000 in 2014-15.

The Oregon College Savings Plan and the Matched College Savings Program (MCSP) are sponsors of Oregon Private College Week.

The colleges and universities participating in Oregon Private College Week are listed below

  • Concordia University
  • Corban University
  • George Fox University
  • Lewis & Clark College
  • Linfield College
  • Marylhurst University
  • Pacific University

About The Alliance:
