Victoria College Rejoins NJCAA

Posted: Updated:

Moments before Victoria College volleyball hosted Wharton County Junior College Monday night, a big announcement took place in the VC gym. 

Victoria College announced Monday that the Pirates are rejoining the National Junior College Athletic Association, or NJCAA. VC had previously been a member of the association, winning back to back NJCAA titles in Men's track and field in 1952 and 1953. The Pirates also competed in NJCAA football, men's basketball, men's and women's golf, and men's and women's tennis before the college's basketball program was terminated in 1970. 

Since 2005, Victoria College has competed in the Texas Collegiate Club Sports League, winning 13 total league titles in women's volleyball, and men's and women's basketball. The move to the NJCAA gives the Pirates a chance to play against a full slate of junior colleges, as well as providing more structure in the recruitment process of student athletes. 

"I mean it's going to give us more exposure, being able to recruit a little bit better," said VC Sports Center Coordinator Josh Moore. "But more importantly, it's more the student athletes. We're trying to give them an opportunity to play sports at a college level, and get an education - a great education here at Victoria College."
