Newscast 11.15.22: Western Iowa Tech have four sports, cheer and e-sports in 2023

Two collegiate sports governing bodies have given Western Iowa Tech Community College the green light to start competing in four sports, according to the Sioux City school.

The National Junior College Athletic Association and the Iowa Community College Athletic Conference both approved WITCC's application to participate in the NJCAA Division II level.
WITCC sports will include men’s basketball, women’s volleyball, men's and women’s soccer, and competitive cheer beginning in the fall of 2023. The Sioux City-based school will start competitive esports beginning this spring.

WITCC President Terry Murrell said in a statement Tuesday that the school was "excited for these efforts so we can better connect with our community and create a vibrant and engaging student experience."

Of the 15 community colleges in Iowa, WITCC is the last to offer competitive sports.
