About Montgomery County Community College's Athletic Program

After a 20-year hiatus, the Mustang athletic program returned in the 2008-2009 season with temporary teams in men's soccer, basketball, and baseball and women's soccer, basketball and softball. Bruce Bach was hired as the Director of Athletics and has since held the position.

In 2010, the college added a women's volleyball team. The Mustangs currently are full members in the EPCC (Eastern Pennsylvania Collegiate Conference's) and in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). The sports teams have become quite competitive, participating in Division III Region 19 of the league. The volleyball team earned a Region 19 championship in 2011 and both soccer teams and basketball teams have reached the playoffs over the last three seasons.
