“What a great accomplishment for our teams!” Eastern Florida State College Associate Vice President of Athletics Jeff Carr said.
“Our Coaches and the student-athletes worked so hard this past year and competed at the highest level; we had a chance to win several national championships. It was an amazing year for our teams and hopefully, we can build on this and have another banner year in 23/24. I would like to thank the coaches and staff for their sacrifices and success this season. I would also like to thank President Dr Richey and Vice President Jack Parker for their support and vision for our athletic programs and none of this is possible without them. A special year indeed!”
