2014 GROSSMONT COLLEGE ATHLETICS

Griffins claim 2013-2014 Chet DeVore trophy
Special to East County Sports.com
EL CAJON (8-23-14) — Grossmont College edged out San Diego Mesa by 213.5 points to 211 points to win the 2013-14 Chet DeVore Award, emblematic of the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference member college with the most successful men’s and women’s intercollegiate athletic program for the academic year.


Grossmont, under Athletic Director Jim Spillers, won or tied for six conference championships, in women’s volleyball, women’s water polo, women’s tennis, men’s basketball, men’s water polo and men’s swimming & diving. The women’s volleyball team finished second in the state.


The award is named after the late Chester S. “Chet” DeVore, founding Commissioner of the Pacific Coast Athletic Conference.


DeVore was President / Superintendent of Southwestern College in Chula Vista from 1961, when he supervised construction and development of its new Chula Vista campus, until his retirement as one of the nation’s most respected community college CEOs 21 years later.


He became the first Commissioner of the PCAC, the host conference for community college athletics in San Diego County and Imperial County , in 1982. He served until his retirement from that post in 1998. DeVore, a World War II hero and Purple Heart and Bronze Star recipient who left a long legacy both in academics and athletics at the college, conference, state and national levels, died in January 2011. He was 92.
