2018 NFA Community College Champion Named

posted Jun 9, 2018, 2:56 PM by Karen Morris

We are pleased to announce East Los Angeles College as the 2018 NFA National Community College Champions. The NFA Community College Award is a relatively new tradition. The proposal establishing the award spells out that it should be presented to the top five community college teams entered in the National Championship Tournament, but never recognize more than 50 % of the field. At the 2018 NFA Championship Tournament, there was only one school clearly identified in individual events as a community college. With only one community college entered in individual events, no trophy was presented at the 2018 National Championship Tournament. At the end of the tournament, East Los Angeles College self-identified as a community college, thus changing the eligibility of awarding a community college award. Our apologies for not recognizing East Los Angeles for this honor at the awards assembly. A plaque has been ordered and mailed to the school.  In addition, the NFA National Championship invitation now requests schools enter their status as a four-year or two-year institution during the registration process.
