FALL SPORTS SET TO BEGIN PLAY
As most of us are enjoying the last few weeks of summer, Harcum's fall sport student-athletes are busy preparing for the upcoming season. Harcum offers five intercollegiate fall sports that compete in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). If you are interested in participating in women's volleyball, men's soccer, women's soccer, men's cross country, or women's cross country, please contact the head coach of the respective sport you are interested in. The start of the season is right around the corner! Men's and women's soccer open play on August 25th, and women's volleyball opens up at home on September 5th.
Six Teams, Four Athletes Win NJCAA Academic Achievement Awards
In an inspiring and significant display of prowess and
professionalism from Harcum’s athletes, six teams and four individuals
were recently recognized by the National Junior College Athletic
Assocation (NJCAA)—not simply for their achievements on the field—but for
their concurrent successes within the classroom. Given the difficult
balancing act that is required to truly perform dually as a student and an athlete, this speaks to the commitment to excellence that Harcum’s student-athletes embody.
The NJCAA Team Academic Award—given to those teams with a
collective GPA of 3.0 or higher—was accorded to the following teams:
Women’s Soccer (3.41), Women’s Volleyball (3.10), Men’s Indoor Track
& Field (3.05), Women’s Indoor Track & Field (3.06), Men’s
Outdoor Track & Field (3.12), and Women’s Outdoor Track & Field
Additionally, the NJCAA Superior Academic Achievement
Award—given to those student-athletes who achieve a 3.8 GPA or
higher—was granted to the Track and Field stars (and twins) Mark and
Morgan Mosley, as well as the Women’s Soccer star Megan Wadja. The NJCAA
Exemplary Academic Achievement Award—bestowed on those student athletes
who achieve above a 3.6 GPA—was given to the Men’s Basketball star Kade
To further highlight the significance of these academic achievements, consider the following: Kade Salisbury placed 4th nationwide for NJCAA Men’s Basketball, this is the 4th consecutive year that Women’s Soccer has won the NJCAA Team Academic Award, and their 3.41 collective GPA has put them in this year’s 3rd place nationwide. For reference, the NJCAA serves 525 different colleges across 24 regions of the United States.
To say that the Harcum family is proud would be a great understatement.
Harcum College provides a variety of opportunities for students wishing
to be involved in an intercollegiate athletics program. The athletic
teams, open to men and women, are members of the National Junior College Athletic Association
and NJCAA Region XIX.
