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. For the third year, WCC Sports is going to take part in that American Tradition and offer our own bracket contest. Everyone is invited to participate by stopping by the office or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
This event is free to all WCC Students and Employees. No brackets will be accepted once the first game of the tournament starts. Also, don’t forget to write your name and phone numbers (or type it for those that are sending theirs via email) so that we have a way of contacting you if you are the winner.

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!
