Cape Fear Community College Director of Athletics Robert McGee has announced the addition of womenâ€™s basketball as its 6th NJCAA sponsored program, with competition slated to start in fall of 2012. Additionally, CFCC administration will start the search for the program’s inaugural head coach over the summer of 2011.
“We look forward to adding an additionalÂ womenâ€™s sport to our already stellar athletic program here at CFCC.Â Womenâ€™s basketball is an obvious choice and will be accepted immediately within our community and among our student body,â€ stated McGee.
With the overall athletic department at the top if its game, the Sea Devils hope to provide another opportunity for students to enjoy on campus.Â The athletics department as a whole garnered four Region 10 Championships, two trips to their respective national tournament, and collected an overall record of 77-21-6 (notÂ to includeÂ the nationally ranked menâ€™s golf program) and a 45-5-3 Region 10 conference record.
With the growth of the local 2-year college, and Cape Fear financially being a better option, student-athletes are choosing Junior Collegeâ€™s as their college of choice across the country.Â Cape Fear Community College will continue to recruit top athletes regionally and nationally in hopes to provide an academic and athletic option for those in need.
McGee added, â€œWe look forward to providing an option for student-athletes to develop both academically and athletically while not breaking the piggy bank financially.Â Junior College athletics has developed quickly in the state of North Carolina and we want to provide these opportunities in Wilmington.â€
