Prospective student-athletes attending Southeast Community College (SCC, www.southeast.edu) will soon have more choices in which to participate in intercollegiate athletics when an expansion plan takes effect in fall 2023.
Sports teams will be based at Beatrice, Lincoln, and Milford campuses instead of Beatrice only, which has been the case for decades.
Plans are being made to more than double the current number of sports teams offered at SCC. Brett Bright, SCC athletic director and Beatrice campus executive director, said the additional sports will dramatically increase student participation in intercollegiate athletics.
Currently, SCC offers ten sports that compete at the National Junior College Athletic Association level, five for women and five for men. New sports are E-sports (coed), women’s golf, rodeo (coed), trap (coed), men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s track and field, men’s volleyball, and men’s and women’s wrestling.
Most of the sports are scheduled to start competition in fall 2023 with the exception of men’s volleyball and possibly men’s and women’s tennis. Those starts may be delayed until fall 2024.
