Sussex County Community College & Ocean County Community College Women's Basketball Teams

NEWTON, NJ—Prior to the start of the women’s basketball game on January 3, The Sussex County Community College (SCCC) women’s basketball team presented Ocean County Community College (OCCC) with a check totaling $405 as a show of support due to Super Storm Sandy’s devastation. Funds will help students and student-athletes at the college.

“We all saw the devastation on the news and knew how much the people there were suffering,” said John Kuntz, Assistant Dean of Athletics. “The reaction received from the coach and players were one of appreciativeness of SCCC’s efforts.”

To continue to contribute to this worthy cause, please call (973) 300-2230 or feel free to stop by the athletic office with your donation.

After SCCC had presented the check, the two teams went on to play basketball and SCCC fell into a 13-point deficit at halftime and was never able to recover; suffering a loss of 70-51 to OCCC last Thursday.

OCCC’s sophomore forward, Amber Nafziger led the way with 19 points, senior forward Corrine Morgan finished with 19 points.

SCCC’s effort was led by sophomore guard Kelsee Tironi who scored a game-high of 16 points and Lindsay Hoffman with 9 points.

Sussex will be back in action on Tuesday, January 8 when they travel to Brooklyn, New York to face Kingsborough Community at 5:00 pm.
