After a great season last year, the Mid Michigan Community College Lakers are gearing up for the fall basketball season.  The men’s team, under coach Kaleb House, is hoping to build on the momentum from last year’s playoff run.  The women’s team, with Matt Rodenbo as the new coach, is starting fresh with a new team and high expectations.

To help the program continue to grow and build, the Lakers are hosting their 5th annual golf outing to support MMCC Athletics on Friday, August 22nd at Snow Snake in Harrison.

The MMCC Lakers are part of the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) as a Division III community college.  As a DIII college, the Lakers cannot offer athletic scholarships, but the program offers an opportunity for students to compete at a collegiate level after high school while earning a degree.  A number of students have even transferred on to play at colleges and universities after playing for the Lakers.

Registration is going on now for this fun event.  Contact Matt Miller at for more information.
