Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference

The Maryland Junior College Athletic Conference (MDJUCO) exists to govern and conduct championships for the conference’s varsity sports. It belongs to Region XX (20) of the National Junior College Athletic Association. Chartered in the late 1960s, the MDJUCO is composed of 16 community colleges in the U.S. State of Maryland.

MDJUCO member schools compete in ten sports, eight for men (baseball, basketball, golf, lacrosse, soccer, track & field, cross country and tennis) and seven for women (basketball, lacrosse, softball, tennis, track & field, cross country and volleyball.)

Members

Awards

MDJUCO offers two program awards, The Presidents' Cup and The Sportsmanship Award.

The Presidents’ Cup is a points based award. A school will earn points based on its final standings in a sport, with first place earning the most points, and the number of points earned being relative to the number of schools sponsoring the sport. The school with the most points at the end of the school year wins the cup. As of the 2010-11 season, the cup is awarded to men's and women's sports separately.

The Sportsmanship Award is awarded to the school with the best sportsmanship at the end of each school year. The recipient is elected by representatives from each school.

MDJUCO has two academic awards, The Student-Athlete of the Month Award, which is given to an individual man and woman athlete each month, and the MDJUCO All-Academic Team, in which student-athletes with a GPA of over 3.6 are elected too.

MDJUCO has two All-MDJUCO teams (first team and second team) for individual athletes in each sport.

Championship

MDJUCO schools can qualify to compete in the NJCAA Region XX tournament and championship for each respective sport. MDJUCO teams also face off against their fellow Region XX conference, the Pennsylvania Collegiate Athletic Association in the tournament.
