Starting in the 1960's, incoming National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) Hall of Fame Coach Ernie Myers fashioned a program that won 11 Conference Championships, three Region XII Championships, and three top Ten finishes in the NJCAA National Championship tournaments. The Bears' rich tradition of coaching excellence continues with three former coaches who have moved on to higher levels: Steve Lyons, Grand Valley State University; Dan Shelton, Saginaw Valley State University; and Doug Greenslate, Aquinas College. Today's team competes in the Michigan Community College Athletic Association (MCCAA), one of the toughest leagues in the Nation, and has gained a reputation as being a contender for Conference, State and Regional titles.
Home games are held at the newly renovated diamond at Kearsley Park. This is one of the best fields in the Region 12 Conference.
