Dear Student Athlete,
Welcome to Los Medanos College and our Intercollegiate Athletic Program. LMC has a proud tradition of winning teams and successful athletes who have followed their dreams of college graduation, transfer to four year colleges, and career success.
Just as you are part of a team here at LMC, our faculty and staff want to “team up” to offer you the best instruction and support possible, to help you achieve your academic goals. We encourage you to take advantage of the college resources available to you and to let us help you “win” in the classroom, as well as on the playing field. We look forward to helping you round out your educational experience with a winning season ahead.
