Three Badgers sign to play basketball with D-I schools
April 22, 2015

EPHRAIM, Utah -- Three Snow College sophomores signed National Letters of Intent today to join the men’s basketball programs this fall at D1 institutions. Walter Wright (University of Montana), Gentrey Thomas (University of California, Riverside) and Larenz Stalcup (University of Louisiana at Lafayette) led the Badgers to a record of 18-12 during the past season before losing to eventual league champion College of Southern Idaho in the second round of the Scenic West Athletic Conference (SWAC) tournament.  

Walter Wright, 5’11” point guard out of Wilby High School in Waterbury, Conn., was First Team All-SWAC following both of his seasons at Snow, and was named Honorable Mention All-American following his sophomore season. Wright averaged 21.8 points and 6.0 assists this year along with 4.2 rebounds and 2.3 steals per game. His best game as a Badger came this past November when he set an all-time Snow College scoring record with 49 points in a 96-89 win over Sheridan College (Wyo.). In that game he also handed out 11 assists and pulled down seven rebounds. Wright broke the school’s record of 45 points in a game set in 1955.

At the signing ceremony Tuesday afternoon, Wright said he wanted to “thank everyone at Snow College for their support, along with my parents, Coach (Rob) Nielson, and my teammates for pushing me so hard.” Wright said he is excited to become a Grizzly at the University of Montana in the Big Sky Conference because “the city of Missoula really supports the basketball program, and the program definitely has a family environment.” Wright continued, “I want to give a shout out to my parents and everyone in Waterbury who have always been so supportive of me.”

Gentrey Thomas, 6’4” guard from Halifax, Nova Scotia, was named Second Team All-SWAC following his sophomore season when he averaged 14.4 points and 6.1 rebounds per game. Thomas was named the National Men’s Basketball Player of the Week by the National Junior College Athletic Association during the final week of the regular season when he scored 27 points against North Idaho and 26 points against Southern Idaho in back-to-back games. Thomas said that week was special for him as his parents came from Nova Scotia to watch him play that week. “They have been so supportive of me even when I play so far from home,” he said.

“I want to thank the coaching staff at Snow for staying with me, and staying on me, during my time here,” Thomas said. He will be following in the footsteps of Snow College guard Nick Gruninger (2011-13) who just completed two successful years at UC Riverside, leading the Highlanders in assists per game as a senior. “Nick just texted me and told me that Riverside will be a good place for me to be,” said Thomas.

Larenz Stalcup, 6’11” center from Wasson High School in Colorado Springs, led the Badgers in rebounding this past season with 6.8 rebounds per game while also averaging 7.7 points and 1.5 blocks per game. He scored 15 points and pulled down 13 rebounds in a game in January against eventual SWAC champion Southern Idaho. Stalcup was named All-SWAC Honorable Mention following his sophomore season.

“Snow College has been a very good experience for me,” Stalcup said, but added he is excited to become a Ragin’ Cajun and play in the Sun Belt Conference. “Louisiana-Lafayette has great athletic programs, every sport,” Stalcup said, “And I want to be part of getting them back into the NCAA tournament.” The Ragin' Cajuns have been invited to the NCAA men’s basketball tournament 10 times, most recently in 2014.

“These young men have worked very hard for us,” said Snow head coach Rob Nielson. “I’m sorry to see them go, but at the same time I’m excited for the opportunities each one of them will have as they move on. I know they will represent Snow College well and we’re proud to be part of what they have achieved so far.”

Snow College, the oldest continuously operating junior college west of the Mississippi River, has campuses in both Ephraim and Richfield, Utah, and plays men’s and women’s basketball, as well as volleyball and softball in the highly competitive Scenic West Athletic Conference. 

Snow College introduces new head volleyball coach
April 17, 2015

EPHRAIM, Utah -- Snow College has announced that Cinthia Angus has accepted the position of head volleyball coach effective immediately. She replaces Craig Choate who took the head coaching position at Southern Utah University in Cedar City after finishing with a record of 20-7 at Snow this past fall and being ranked No. 10 in the National Junior College Athletics Association final poll.

Angus (née Silva) is a native of San Paulo, Brazil, who played collegiately at Salt Lake Community College (SLCC) and the University of Utah. At SLCC she led the Bruins to a third-place finish at the 2007 NJCAA national tournament where she was an All-Tournament team selection and a second-team All-American. In 2008, Angus helped the Utah Utes win the Mountain West Conference (MWC) crown and to a Sweet 16 appearance after posting 1.99 kills and 2.25 digs per set as an outside hitter.

During her senior year at Utah she was named to the university’s Dean’s List and earned a spot on the MWC All-Academic Team. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Parks, Recreation & Tourism. In 2011 she earned a Master of Science degree in International Business from Durham University, UK.

For the past year Angus has been Club Director and Coach for High Country Volleyball Club in Salt Lake City which attracts and prepares top-level volleyball players to compete in local, regional, and national competitions sanctioned by Intermountain Volleyball Association (IVA) and the United States Volleyball Association (USAV). For a year before that she was the head volleyball coach at East High School in Salt Lake. While doing her graduate work at Durham University, she served as Graduate Head Volleyball Coach, and was a volunteer assistant coach at the University of Utah while completing her undergraduate degree.

“We are really excited to get someone with the international experience and connections that Cinthia brings,” said Snow Director of Athletic Operations Gary McKenzie. “Adding in her experience as a player in the SWAC (Scenic West Athletic Conference), as a high school coach in the Salt Lake City area, and All-Academic honors as a player, Cinthia brings with her everything we were looking for in a coach.”

Founded in 1888, Snow College is the oldest continuously operating two-year college west of the Mississippi River. The Badgers play volleyball, along with men’s and women’s basketball and softball, in the highly competitive Scenic West Athletic Conference.
