WNCC Considers Appeal for NJCAA Decision

December 10, 2012

On December 7, 2012, Western Nebraska Community College received notice that one player on the WNCC women's basketball team was deemed ineligible by the National Junior College Athletic Association.  

The College followed standard procedures to verify the amateur status of all current players, prior to the start of the season. WNCC is considering whether it is appropriate to appeal. 
Pending the decision to appeal, Evgenia Samorodova will not compete and WNCC women's basketball games played during the 2012-2013 season prior to December 8 will be listed as a forfeit, per NJCAA bylaws.
