Spring is here and Carroll Community College students Katie Taylor, Rachel Dannettel, Marco Sumpter, and Ji Han are leading two of Carroll’s outdoor activities clubs, which, they say, are ready to get you outside and motivated to conquer any class and hectic schedule.
Taylor, Dannettel, and Sumpter recently formed the running club, while Han heads up the soccer club.
Now that the weather is cooperating, students still seem to take full advantage of the gym the college offers. Taylor , Sumpter, and Dannettel have a solution to the inside activities students used throughout the colder months: the new running club that meets at the gym on Thursday at 3:30.
“We are really excited to get this club up and running, no pun intended!” says Sumpter
According to Taylor, novice to experienced runners are welcomed and will be educated in the basics of nutrition, stretches, and proper attire that will make your running experience as comfortable as possible.
She adds that the club was not only created to increase cardiovascular levels, but that the social aspect is not only welcomed, but encouraged.
When being active some feel a team approach can be more successful. Students looking for such an approach may need to look no further than the Carroll Community College field near the Y.M.C.A on Thursday at 3:30. There they will find Ji Han, President of the soccer club.
The soccer club will be holding open play to students with any style, level, gender, and nationality in which the game is played, says Han. The club is also a social outlet using activity to promote a healthy lifestyle, he attests.
“[We are] looking for dedicated and decent girls to impact a already solid squad” says Han.
This club also meets off campus on Friday nights to compete against other intramural teams at Carroll Indoor Soccer facility. Other big plans for the future are to meet off campus to enjoy some of the professional games television has to offer.
These are just two of several activity clubs at Carroll Community College. Students looking for more information should consult the Student Life Office in room A118.
