Proceeds benefit the NECC Athletic Program, which recently reintroduced its intercollegiate golf program for both men and women. The last time NECC had a golf program was 20 years ago.
For the 2019-20 academic year NECC saw the return of both the men’s soccer and women’s basketball programs, along with a new Esport program, which won two national awards this spring. Other spring sports were sidelined by the Covid-19 pandemic. Proceeds from the golf tournament will be used for athletic facility improvements, continued sports expansion, and for students athletics support programs to help them reach their academic and athletic goals.
