The Saddleback athletics department is proud to announce the amount of scholarship monies awarded to athletes from the 2016-17 year has reached an all-time high. Saddleback student-athletes have now earned over $2.5-million in scholarships this past year.
Saddleback started collecting data in 2010-11 with a desire to find out how effective they were in promoting their athletes and moving them on to the four-year level. In addition, the data has been used for commencement addresses and various promotional tools.
This year the numbers reached an all-time high in scholarships, with close to 40 athletes earning full or partial help in continuing their education. In addition, another 30+ student-athletes will continue their education at a four-year school, with much more making their decisions over the summer.
