From Midland College Athetics
The Midland College (Texas) women's and men's basketball teams and their fans, celebrated the 75th year of the existence of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) recently. The NJCAA was founded in 1938 and in that time the Association has seen strong growth and stronger acceptance of its overall mission.
Over the past 75 years NJCAA member institutions have witnessed the educational and athletic accomplishments of millions of its student-athletes. Looking at the rich history of, not only the NJCAA, but professional sports leagues and associations all across the globe as well as many professional occupations, you will see the names our former student-athletes. NJCAA student-athletes have found their way to the NFL, NBA, MLB, the Olympics, professional soccer, volleyball and many other such sports. Ours is a very proud legacy!
Midland College was founded in 1972 and joined the NJCAA in 1974. We are celebrating our 40th year of existence and concurrently our nearly forty years of membership in the Association.
On Tuesday, November 20th the Midland College men's and women's basketball teams played host to our friends from Ranger College in a double-header. Midland College priced game admission at 75-cents to commemorate the year long celebration of the NJCAA's founding. The college also and served free cake and cupcakes to the games attendees.
We are proud of our almost four decade association with the NJCAA and we join our fellow member institutions in celebrating 75 years of excellence and achievement!
