Mid Michigan College men’s and women’s basketball teams recently saw how they stacked up against the competition in Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA) pre-season rankings.
The MCCAA Western Conference coaches selected Ancilla College to lead the Men's Basketball Pre-Season Rankings Poll. Muskegon Community College earned second place honors, Grand Rapids Community College third, and the Mid Michigan College Lakers are ranked fourth.
With several talented returning student-athletes and the most experienced head coach, with nine years leading the Lakers, out of the ten ranked teams, the men’s basketball team has a bright season ahead.
“We’re here and we’re hungry,” said Head Coach Kaleb House. “This team has put in the work in the classroom and on the court. I expect great results and so do the men on this team.”
Muskegon Community College women's basketball team was picked to top the Women’s Basketball Pre-Season Rankings Poll. Grand Rapids Community College earned second place recognition, and the Mid Michigan College Lakers are ranked third.
With highly-skilled returning student-athletes, including the MCCAA Freshman of the Year Alexys Carlstrom of Harrison, the team is poised to make first-year Head Coach JT Cleveland’s season a successful campaign.
“We’re a strong team, on and off the court,” noted Head Coach JT Cleveland. “We learn together, build skills together, and we’ll win together.”
