Head Coach Megan Groh and her women's tennis team made history on September 5 as they defeated Bergen Community College, 6-1, to give Northampton Community College its first-ever National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) victory.
Playing in their inaugural NJCAA match, Northampton started off strong, taking both doubles matches as Meghan Conrad and Allison Potter teamed up to defeat Stella Tello and Isabella Canal 8-4, while Krista Maue and Shelby Toth downed Stefani Feliz and Alma Guzman 8-1.
The Spartans took four of the five single matches. On Saturday, September 7, the team suffered their first loss, falling to Ocean County College. Their remaining home matches are on September 10, 16 and 19, and on October 3 and 8 at 4 p.m.
The athletics program at NCC has grown dramatically in the last five years. Spartans now compete in ten sports: women's volleyball, men's soccer, baseball, softball, men's golf, men's basketball, women's basketball, men's lacrosse, cross country, and women's tennis.
The men's basketball, women's basketball and women's volleyball team have been ranked in the top ten nationally by the National Junior College Athletic Association.
