Two former basketball players and its 1982 baseball team will be inducted into Mt. San Jacinto College’s Hall of Fame on Oct. 21.
Former MSJC basketball player Troy Truvillion was named both the conference player of the year and First Team All-State during the 1988 season for the Eagles as he helped guide the team to a conference championship and a record of 28-6. Truvillion went on to star at Eastern Montana University, where he is already enshrined in their Hall of Fame. Following his college career, Truvillion played 11 professional seasons in Australia and Europe. After retiring from the game, Troy served the youth of Arizona through a number of companies including Youth Development Services and TruSeven Sports.
Britney Iredale led the MSJC women’s basketball team to a number of firsts in program history. Iredale was the lone sophomore on the 2007 Lady Eagles squad who captured the first conference title in program history as well as leading the team to their first ever postseason victory. She earned conference player of the year and first team All-State honors that season, also a first for a member of the Lady Eagle program. Iredale went on to Upper Iowa University where she was an All-Conference player in her senior season. Britney currently works in law enforcement in Arizona.
MSJC’s 1982 baseball team, coached by Paul Moore, played for the California Community College Division II Championship. Despite falling short in the championship game played at the San Jacinto Campus, this Eagle team was just the second in school history to play for a state title. To this date they are still just one of five team sports in MSJC history to play in a state championship contest. Many members of the ‘82 team continue to live and work in the San Jacinto Valley.
MSJC will also honor Charles Silvas, a former coach at the school and longtime Athletic Department supporter with the President’s Award.
The Oct. 21 ceremonies will coincide with the Eagles Homecoming football game against Southwestern College. The honorees will be celebrated at halftime of the 1 p.m. game at Carl Quandt Stadium with a formal induction ceremony to follow that evening.
