PCC student athletes make impact on community in 2017-18

Pratt Community College student athletes made great contributions to the Pratt Community both on and off the field of play during the 2017-18 school year. As an athletic department, PCC athletics had a total 3,758 hours of community service across 12 athletics programs.

The women's sport with the most community service hours was volleyball with 588 hours. For the second year PCC volleyball participated in the Samaritan's Feet equipment fund raiser. Partnering with Dodge City Community College, the two teams collected packages of socks, pairs of shoes, and various other volleyball equipment and athletic apparel for impoverished children, especially in the African continent.

Out of all the PCC athletic programs wrestling led the way with 909 hours of community service. PCC wrestlers accrued these hours by cleaning facilities across the PCC campus and in the community. They also set up and broke down various community events for the Pratt community. A highlight for the wrestlers for community service was contributing in various wrestling camps and clinics, and participating with the USA Kansas wrestling regional training center practices.

Congratulations to all PCC student athletes for their contributions to the community during the 2017-18 academic year.
