Lakers Athletics Department

Lake-Sumter Community College offers intercollegiate athletics in three sports for both men and women. The LSCC Athletic Program competes in Women's Volleyball, Women's Fast-Pitch Softball, and Men's Baseball. The College competes as a Division 1 program in the Mid-Florida Conference of the Florida Community College Activities Association (FCCAA). The FCCAA is governed by the rules of the National Junior Community College Athletic Association (NJCAA), of which Lake-Sumter is a member. The athletic program is built on the same principles that have made Lake-Sumter the Community College of Central Florida. Intercollegiate athletics has become an integral part of student life on campus and contributes to the continued excellence of LSCC. The program offers scholarships to local student-athletes who have excelled academically and athletically during their high school careers. These scholarships are based upon financial need, scholastic aptitude and athletic excellence. We invite you to share in our vision through your support of the LSCC Athletic Program.

"Celebrate literacy week was a huge success," said LSCC athletic director Mike Matulia. "This may have been the greatest accomplishment that our program has had in the last few years. The 'Champions That Read' slogan was perfect for our student-athletes and the championship attitudes that they presented to the 37 classrooms that they visited."
The Florida Department of Education and the Just Read, Florida! Office are focused on making the week of Jan. 24-28, 2011, a week of celebration and recognition. "Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida!" is an opportunity to promote literacy throughout the state by raising awareness of literacy and challenging students to become "Champions that Read." There are exciting events taking place in school districts, local programs and projects offered by the DOE all year round and through Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida! partners, districts agencies and organizations can all champion the same cause. "Champions Read, Readers Lead," is our effort to promote the enjoyment of reading for children and adults of all ages.
