BUFFALO, N.Y. – June 29 – Three Erie Community College athletics teams and eight student-athletes were recipients of 2010-11 NJCAA Academic Awards, announced today by the NJCAA national office.
In addition to winning the national title on the lanes, the ECC men’s bowling team led its sport in the classroom on the list of 2010-11 NJCAA All-Academic Teams.

Hi GMT, Hope your Christmas was a good one. Your son can sign a letter of innett with a junior college and a National Letter of Intent with an NCAA Div. I or II program without one impacting the other. They are two separate and distinct documents. However, keep in mind that when your son signs a letter of innett with a school, he is signing with that school for all sports. So, if your son signs a letter of innett with school A, he is committing to that school, whether he will be competing in soccer or track.Congrats to your son on his offer, and good luck this spring!Rick
