Athletics

Competing at the highest levels of intercollegiate athletics, Miami Dade College’s Sharks have built a legacy of success and are winners of 34 conference, state, and national titles – including 13 in women’s sports.

Our athletes have found success at Division I teams throughout the country, as well as the pros; All Stars such as Bucky Dent, Mike Piazza, Rául Ibañez, and Plácido Polanco are counted among our alumni.

Our teams are led by proven winners, such as baseball’s Danny Price, one of the few collegiate coaches to record more than 1,000 victories; women’s basketball’s Susan Summon, a nationally recognized NJCAA hall of famer; and softball’s Gina De Aguero, a Southern Conference Coach of the Year.

Our focus on academics is paramount: More than 90 percent of our women’s basketball players, for example, continue their education at four-year institutions.

At the College, success on the field or court is just the beginning. We prepare student athletes for the challenges of life.
