Shayce Johnston was outstanding in her third season last year with the Vancouver Island University Mariners. She finished with a PACWEST gold medal and a berth to the 2019 CCAA women’s basketball national championship tournament.
She led her team with over seven and a half rebounds a game and was second in team scoring averaging 11.6 points a game. Her well rounded game helped the Mariners to a 15-1 record and a fourth place finish at the CCAA nationals. She was also named a PACWEST Second Team All-Star.
In the classroom Johnston is in the Sports Health and Physical Education program at VIU and is succeeding.
She is highlighted in the PACWEST's “Best In Class,” a feature focused on the student athletes across the Conference that are leaving their mark on athletics and academics.
