LaGuardia Red Hawks Basketball Teams Return to the Nest.
On December 5th at 3:30 p.m. in the Sports Gymnasium, LaGuardia Community College will hold its inaugural Homecoming, celebrating the Red Hawks teams’ first home court basketball games. Our men's and women’s teams are the first from LaGuardia to enter intercollegiate play at the CUNY Athletic Conference and the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA). The Lady Red Hawks will face the Bronx Community College Broncos at 5:30 p.m., and the men will play at 7:30 p.m.
“The Homecoming will generate a lot of energy and enthusiasm prior to the games," said Athletic Director, Brian Goldstein. "I already hear our students talking about it in the hallways. It's so exciting to be a part of it."
“The Lady Red hawks are extremely excited about the opportunity that’s been afforded them. Representing LaGuardia has been a 100% positive experience for the young ladies. Through this team experience our young women have seen how they can make a difference on campus and in their own communities,” said Coach Anthony Alfaro.
The men’s team, led by Coach Ben Chobhaphand, expressed the same liveliness. “The Red Hawks are very excited about playing on our home court. The Homecoming Event will bring a lot of school spirit and Red Hawk pride.”
After playing 20 away games combined (9 for women’s and 11 for men’s), both Red Hawks teams will return from the road to be greeted by their adoring supporters at LaGuardia. The Red Hawks Pep Band, Cheerleaders, and Step Team will be among the event’s spirited performers.
Please join us for the excitement and show your pride by wearing a red shirt to the game (we will also be giving out free t-shirts!). Seating is limited so please arrive early for optimal seats, and don’t miss an unforgettable Red Hawks Team introduction.
