Western Nevada Community College expects to sign at least ten Nevada and California high school seniors or graduates to its new intercollegiate women's soccer team, the college announced today. WNCC will host a signing ceremony for its inaugural team members on Friday, April 8, at 3 p.m. in the Dini Student Center, Carson City campus, 2201 West College Parkway.
Western expects to play baseball and women's soccer in the Scenic West conference, college officials said. The college has applied to join the conference and compete beginning in the 2005-2006 school year. The Scenic West is a Division I conference, which allows WNCC to offer athletic scholarships as well as afford students the opportunity to utilize the Millennium Scholarship and other types of financial assistance.
The college is constructing a baseball and soccer facility at its Carson City campus in Nevada's capital. WNCC also has an intercollegiate rodeo team that competes in the West Coast Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association.
