HARRISBURG – The Lady “Hawks” of HACC, Central Pennsylvania’s Community College, are looking for female HACC students who want to play basketball on their dynamic and competitive team.
“The team is a member of the Eastern Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (EPAC) and the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA),” said Michele Kieff, head coach of the Lady Hawks. “Being a part of the NJCAA gives the school’s student-athletes an opportunity to compete on a regional and national stage.”
The Lady Hawks are currently ranked second in the EPAC.
“Being a part of the team provides incredible benefits for our students – lasting friendships, good time management skills, the ability to play basketball after high school and the time to strengthen skills necessary to continue their basketball career at a four-year institution,” said Kieff.
Krista Hoffman, point guard and first-year dental hygiene student, said, “This is my first semester here, and I’ve definitely made friends on the basketball team that will continue once the season is over.”
Guard/forward Tawni Ruby, a criminal justice student, said, “One of the biggest benefits I’ve gotten from playing basketball with HACC is definitely discipline and how to manage my time between schoolwork and basketball.”
HACC students who have completed more than 12 credit hours can sign up for the team on HACC’s website at http://www.hacc.edu/StudentLife/Athletics/Womens-Basketball.cfm.
