Since the revival of athletics at Mid Michigan Community College (MMCC) in 2008, the program has grown at a steady pace, and will soon expand to offer students even more opportunities.
Mid currently fields men’s and women’s varsity teams in cross country, bowling, and basketball. Baseball and Softball arrive on the athletic roster in the fall of 2018.
Mid’s Lakers compete in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) against 19 other community colleges for conference championships before being eligible for state and national tournaments.
The Lakers also compete in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) as well. Structured comparably to the well-known NCAA and its associated conferences (Big 10, ACC, SEC, etc), the NJCAA includes the MCCAA as one of forty junior college conferences nationwide.
“We are excited to build our athletic program for students and the community,” said Matt Miller, Vice President of Student Services at Mid.“Our focus is always on doing it right—putting academics before athletics, building sustainable programs, and developing an environment that can truly support student-athletes.”
“The athletic programs at Mid have a solid foundation, community support, and an ongoing commitment to developing high-quality student-athletes and teams who are positioned for great achievements in the coming years,” noted Miller.
