San Diego, CA. —  Tomorrow, on Wednesday, October 18 at 12:00 p.m., Mesa College will be hosting their Spirit Week Pep Rally on campus to celebrate the success of the Athletics program with the 4th win of the Devore Trophy, and upcoming contests, culminating in the 2023 Homecoming Football Game on Saturday, Oct 21. 


The DeVore Award is presented each year to a Pacific Coast Athletics Conference (PCAC) member college with the most successful men’s and women’s intercollegiate athletic program for the academic year. Mesa College has won this award four times; in 2011-12, 2018-2019, 2021-22 and now for 2022-23. Mesa College has won this trophy more than any other college in the PCAC.


The Pep Rally is hosted by the Associated Students in celebration of Spirit Week festivities. 2023 Spirit Week will feature multiple athletics contests – including both men’s and women’s soccer along with women’s volley ball – and will culminate when the Olympians head into their Homecoming Football Game on Saturday, October 21, against Mt San Jacinto College.
