Our Student Athlete Commitment

Our Student Athlete Commitment

The athletic program at SGSC is designed to be different from other programs in the nation. We know there is more to a successful athletic program than just winning games. Our program is designed to teach athletes the key elements that will make their current and future lives more successful. We do this in a family environment where we truly care about our Student Athlete’s personal, educational, as well as athletic needs.

 

The Men’s Basketball program is fully committed to the mission of the athletic program.  In just 9 years as a basketball program, we have averaged 21 wins a season (192 wins total), won the GCAA Regular Season Championship 2014-15, GCAA Conference Tournament in 2010-11, played in the NJCAA National Tournament in 2010-11 and made the conference tournament all 8 years eligible while being nationally ranked in numerous defensive categories. Equally important, is the success of our student-athletes off the court. In the previous 9 years of the program’s existence, 69 student-athletes have moved on to continue their education at four-year institutions while playing basketball at the four-year level. Also, over the past eight  years, 90% of our basketball players have graduated with an Associate degree before moving on.  In the last four seasons, SGSC has won 97 games and had 28 of 29 sophomores who finished the season playing graduate. SGSC has also had 9 NCAA Division I signees in the last 4 last seasons.  In addition, we have had four NJCAA All-Americans (3 in a row) in just 9 seasons of competition and two NJCAA Academic All-Americans. We are very proud of our student-athletes while they are here but we know they will go on to accomplish much more–just like all of our student body strives to do.
