FROM THE PRESIDENT Welcome to all Kankakee Community College student athletes, parents, and Cavalier fans! On behalf of the KCC Board of Trustees, faculty, staff and Cavalier Nation, I would like to welcome you as we begin another year in quest of excellence. Each and every year brings forth the anticipation and expectation of striving for, and reaching, significant goals. We refer to this as the “Power of Excellence.” Our athletes have demonstrated excellence in the classroom, with numerous students and teams earning NJCAA All-Academic honors. KCC students and teams have also consistently shown the “Power of Success” through their efforts on the court and fields. The history of success for our athletic teams, along with our appearances at the national tournaments and national championships, speak for themselves. The success of our athletic program is driven by the expectations of KCC’s coaches. Our coaches stress the importance of academic success, commitment to the sport, goal

setting, teamwork and drive for excellence. These are the qualities that later translate into character development for our young women and men. These become the characteristics our student athletes carry with them into their educational and professional careers, as well as their personal lives. This outcome – the professional growth and development of our student athletes - is what the college takes the most pride in for the future. George “Papa Bear” Halas, Hall of Fame coach and player for the Chicago Bears, would always say, “No one who ever gave it their best, ever regretted it.” That is the expectation, and that expectation is what builds the “Power of Success” and the “Power of Excellence.” To the KCC student athletes, I wish you great success as you strive for excellence. To the parents of our student athletes, I thank you for entrusting your child to our coaches and our programs. Lastly, to Cavalier Nation, I invite you to be part of our winning tradition at Kankakee Community College. Go Cavs!

SEASON PREVIEW

The Lady Cavaliers return to the hardwood intent on making a strong appearance at the Region IV Tournament. The team ended last season with a National Tournament appearance and a record of 23-9. The team will feature six new freshmen and four sophomores and one transfer. Success will depend on growth, leadership, and the ability of the newcomers to learn quickly, listen and be coachable. Coach Donnie Denson will ask the freshmen to step up and make their presence felt on the offensive and

defensive ends. The sophomores will be expected to lead by example and continue the hardnosed style of play that has earned 22 National Tournament appearances in the past 28 years for the Lady Cavaliers. The 2018-19 schedule has the Cavs facing off against South Suburban College, Moraine Valley C.C., Prairie State College, Morton College, and Rock Valley C.C. in Region IV. The schedule also takes the Cavaliers out of Region IV to play Kalamazoo Valley C.C., Danville Area C.C., Parkland College, Lake Michigan College, St. Louis C.C., Ancilla, and Lake Land College. The Lady Cavaliers expect to face several nationally ranked teams. The 2018-19 schedule includes five contests against NJCAA Division I opponents, 22 with NJCAA Division II teams and two NJCAA Division III. These regular season matchups should give the Cavs the preparation necessary to compete for the regional championship crown.
