St. Clair County Community College is pleased to announce the addition of women’s golf to its athletic offerings. In doing so, it becomes one of just a handful of colleges in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association with a women’s golf team.
Women’s golf brings collegiate sports teams at SC4 to 12, joining teams in cross country, basketball, bowling, baseball, softball, volleyball, golf and wrestling. The team will begin its play in 2020-21 and will be recruiting players over the coming year.
“A women’s golf team will contribute greatly to the college’s growing reputation as a leader in community college athletics,” said SC4 Athletic Director Dale Vos. “Golf is an ever-growing sport in our region and across the nation. We’re thrilled to provide the opportunity for outstanding women to succeed and lead in this sport.”
The women’s golf team will be coached by Celina Grondin, a former multi-sport collegiate athlete who serves as director of institutional research at the college.
“I’m thrilled to play a role in launching a women’s golf program in our region,” said Grondin. “I look forward to working with athletes to enhance their skills and confidence both on and off the course.”
Brenna Johnson, a St. Clair High School graduate who played on the men’s SC4 golf team last year and now plays on the Saginaw Valley State University women’s golf team, is pleased to hear about the team as well.
“Being able to play golf on the SC4 men’s team was such an amazing opportunity,” Johnson said. “It was a very fun season with all of my teammates and competitors. It is wonderful to hear that the Skippers will soon have a women’s golf program, though, to provide even greater opportunities to women in the sport.”
