Raider Athletics "Step Up to the Plate" Campaign
UPDATE: As of July 11, 2018 we have reached our fundraisng goal! Read about our ground breaking ceremony here.
The past three years have been exceptional for NWF State College Athletics. In 2014-15 and 2015-16, all four sports made the postseason, including national titles in Men's Basketball and Baseball in 2014-15. In 2016-17, three of the four sports made the postseason, including one conference title and Final Four appearance in Men's Basketball. As a whole, all four programs continue to be consistent pillars in the NJCAA National Polls on an annual basis.
Excellence in Northwest Florida State College's intercollegiate athletic programs not only is determined by wins and losses. Excellence is also judged on academic achievement. Our goal is to provide NWF students with a level of quality education that leads to documented academic success, contributing to their social development and preparing them for meaningful lives and careers. Since the 2013-14 academic year, NWF State College has been among the NJCAA leaders in graduation rates at an 83% annual average.
NWF athletic facilities are second to none and an essential element in our recruiting efforts. However, over the years, many of our peer institutions and competitors nationwide have added indoor hitting facilities to their programs. Indoor facilities have become the norm for elite programs. Investment in new training facilities is a necessity for premier athletic programs. It's not only about keeping players in top performance condition or furthering a program's success, but training facilities have another major benefit — attracting top recruits.
