ELAC Names Scholar-Athletes of the Year

By EGP Staff Report

Basketball’s Izaiah Sweeney, left, and badminton’s Jean Mornelle Buenaflor were named the male and female athletes of the year, respectively at the East Los Angeles College Department of Athletics’ 16th Annual Scholar-Athlete Awards Dinner. Sweeney was named all-state after helping lead the Huskies to the state final four, and Buenaflor helped ELAC win its first-ever state doubles championship. Alumnus James Sams, middle, the principal at Bell Gardens Elementary School, was the keynote speaker. Sams was a two-time all-conference tackle on the Husky football teams in 1988 and ’89. The event was held July 21 in the multi-purpose room in the new ELAC Student Center.
