Women’s Softball is Starting Up Again!

The WCC Women’s Club Softball Team is starting up again for the spring 2014 season. The first two practices will be indoors due to the weather and will meet on March 31st and April 3rd in TI 108 from 5:30pm-7:30pm. If the weather continues, the team will go inside to indoor batting cages.

This year the team is looking forward to playing in various tournaments around the state as well as having a few scrimmages with local teams. There is a possibility of doing both slow-pitch and fast-pitch tournaments. Players who play both fast-pitch and slow-pitch are encouraged to come out for the team.

The coach is great at training players in both slow and fast pitch and she is always welcoming newcomers to the sport. As long as you are a WCC students taking at least 3 credits and holding a 2.0 cumulative GPA, you are welcome to join the team!

March Madness!

It’s that time of year again, March Madness. When everyone scurries around trying to put together the perfect bracket and correctly predict who will win the NCAA Basketball Championship.

Everyone is invited to participate by stopping by the office or sending an email to elemm@wccnet.edu to request a blank bracket. Once you have your bracket, fill it out and submit it back to us by March 20th at closing time. We will keep track of everyone’s progress, and if you want to know how you are doing in the tournament feel free to stop by the office and we will be happy to let you know! The winner of the bracket contest will win a WCC Sports Intramural Championship T-shirt, so you can show the world that you won the 2013-2014 March Madness Bracketology contest.

Beat the Cold- Play Indoor Soccer with WCC!

Men’s and Women’s Soccer is starting back up on February 10th! The teams are looking forward to the start of the new indoor season in preparation for their competitive fall outdoor season. Washtenaw Community College’s soccer teams have come a long way within the past 2 years. The women’s team has only been in existence for a couple years and the men’s team went from participating in a local league to being competitive in a college league. Both teams took second place last winter in their Winter 2013 indoor leagues with the men’s team able to take a win away from Eastern Michigan University.

This year invites new changes to the programs. Both the Men’s and Women’s WCC Soccer Teams will call home to the new Legacy Center in Brighton, Michigan which offers full field indoor soccer on a turf field where outdoor shoes can be worn. All games will be played at this new facility. The men’s team will also be under new leadership with the hiring of a new coach determined to make the program successful very quickly.

Tryouts for both teams will be held on Monday, February 10th and Thursday, February 13th from 9:15-11pm at Pioneer High School. Gym shoes must be worn. Soccer practice will be held at Pioneer High School from 9:15pm to 11:00pm on Monday and Thursdays until mid-March when the teams will then practice outside from 5:30-7:30pm at WCC. To be eligible students must be taking at least 3 credits at WCC and hold at least a 2.0 gpa. All WCC Sports programs are free to students and all skill levels are welcome to try out!
