St. Clair County Community College is adding wrestling to its athletic offerings beginning in the 2017-18 academic year.
It will become the ninth sport at the school, joining men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s basketball, baseball, softball, volleyball and men’s golf.
“We are very excited to add wrestling to our athletic department,” SC4 Athletic Director Dale Vos said. “It will create more opportunities for our students, and open up our school to student-athletes who may not have considered us before. We are excited about the very deep talent pool available in the Blue Water Area and Southeast Michigan for us to build a team with.”
SC4 becomes one of four community colleges in Michigan to offer wrestling, joining Muskegon CC, Henry Ford College and Mott CC. Mott and Henry Ford each sponsored club teams in 2016-17. Ancilla College, which is located in Indiana but is a member of the Michigan Community College Athletic Association, also has a wrestling team.
The search for a coach has begun, and the job will be posted at www.sc4.edu/jobs.
Wrestlers interested in joining the program can contact the athletic department at (810) 989-5670.
