As the winter athletic season begins to wind down, it was announced that the Mohawk Valley Community College Hawks are in second place after the fall sports season in the NATYCAA Cup. Initiated in 2004, this award recognizes excellence and diversity in two-year college athletics at the national level.
MVCC won the inaugural cup and has never finished lower than eighth place in the history of the award.
The Hawks scored 53 points at national championship events during the fall sports season and trail only Gloucester County College in the standings. Ocean County, SUNY Delhi, and Fashion Institute of Technology round out the top five colleges.
The National Alliance of Two-Year College Athletic Administrators is the only professional organization that represents all two year institutions of higher education in the United States for athletic administrators.
Established in 1987, the organization is dedicated to the continuing growth and development of two year college athletics and the individuals involved through an exchange of information, monitoring of legislation, promotion of academic excellence, increasing communication between organizations, and encouraging a high degree of integrity in all endeavors.
