Basketball players Travis Garrison and Renee Tzeo have been named Clark College Athletes of the Month for December.

Clark men’s coach Mike Arnold described Garrison, a 6-foot-5 sophomore forward and Evergreen High graduate, as showing “great leadership and commitment to his teammates, the program, and his own development for the past couple of years.”

Tzeo is a 5-7 freshman guard and graduate of Reynolds High School in Troutdale, Ore. Clark women’s coach Nancy Boone said she “demonstrates a strong sense of leadership,” and “has a high basketball IQ, which she gained from playing on a very strong summer league team.”

Garrison carries a 3.31 grade point average, while Tzeo has a 3.55 GPA.
