Does a home run on the ball field or a hole-in-one on the golf course make your heart beat faster? Are you interested in racing toward the athletic AND the academic finish lines?
Intercollegiate athletics at Anne Arundel Community College provides a competitive program that cultivates the skills and values inherent in competitive sports, but also encourages the transfer of its student-athletes into four-year institutions.
Last term, seven AACC student athletes were honored as All-Americans for outstanding performance during the 2012 spring season in sports including golf, lacrosse, softball and baseball.
The college’s golfers qualified for the National championships, and the softball and women’s lacrosse teams also were champions! Softball captured the Region and District championships. Women’s lacrosse, which fell in the first round of the national tournament 6-7 to Monroe Community College of New York, closed out the 2012 season with a 17-2 record, captured the region and conference titles and also was a district runner-up.
Both teams qualified for national championships!
Women’s softball had an outstanding finish to an impressive 43-10 season. The team earned runner-up designation in the Division 3 Nationals tournament after compiling a four-game winning streak and playing Gloucester Community College in the tournament final.
Three of AACC’s baseball players landed on the All-Maryland JUCO team and seven on the All-Regional 20 team, while three Pioneers earned Gold Glove awards following the 2012 season. Sophomore infielder Daniel Seeba is an NJCAA Baseball D1 All-American, second team. In 2012 he posted a .412 batting average with 66 RBI's and 48 stolen bases. There has not been a Pioneer baseball All-American since 2006!
In men’s basketball for the 2011-12 season, Pioneer sophomore guard Kevin Eaglin was named NJCAA All American 2nd team for Division 3. Eaglin also made the All MD JUCO Conference- second team. He was fourth in the conference in scoring, averaging 20.1 points per game.
The Pioneers are the NJCAA Region 20 tournament runner-up and for the first time they advanced to the district tournament! Student-athletes Kevin Eaglin and Erin Senegal made the all-region tournament team.
