Montgomery College Elevates Athletics Programs, Student-Athletes Now Eligible for Athletic Scholarships

September 6, 2018

After a storied, championship-laden history as a National Junior College Athletic Association Division III athletic program, Montgomery College is competing this fall at the Division I and Division II levels.

   The Montgomery College teams elevating to the Division I level are men’s soccer, women’s soccer, men’s outdoor track and field, and women’s outdoor track and field. The Montgomery College volleyball, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, baseball, and softball teams will compete in NJCAA Division II. The MC baseball team plays home games on the Germantown campus.

   “Montgomery College and the NJCAA are committed to providing quality athletic opportunities to enhance the entire collegiate learning experience for its student-athletes,” said Montgomery College Athletic Director Tarlouh Gasque, also the head women’s basketball coach. “The student-athletes are excited. They want to compete with the best teams in the region and in the nation. It’s also an exciting time for future Raptors in our local high schools looking to compete in the top tiers of collegiate sports.”

   The Raptors will remain in Region XX and continue to compete against state rivals in the Maryland JUCO Athletic Conference. With more than 150 student-athletes competing in nine sports, 25 student-athletes transferred last year to four-year institutions to continue their academic and athletic endeavors.

   According to the National Junior College Athletic Association, Division I sports may grant full athletic scholarships (tuition, books, fees, room and board), up to $250 in course required supplies and transportation costs one time per academic year, to and from the college by direct route. Division II sports may grant athletic scholarships, but scholarships are limited to tuition, books, fees and up to $250 in course required supplies. Each sport has limits on the number of scholarships that can be granted.

   It is the mission of the Montgomery College Department of Athletics to offer intercollegiate programs that provide diverse opportunities for participation and foster a sense of collegiality among the college community while promoting character development, leadership qualities, sportsmanship and academic excellence in our student-athletes.
