Stanly Early College (SEC) and Stanly STEM Early College (SSEC) offer a range
of intramural sports to keep students active and involved.

Some of the sports offered include flag football, volleyball, basketball and soccer.

Students practice after school in co-ed teams a few weeks prior to the tournaments.

At tournaments, they compete against teams from other Early Colleges as a way of interacting with students from similar environments.

Multiple faculty members take turns supervising the practices and assisting at the one-day tournaments.

Most recently, 135 SEC and SSEC students participated in a volleyball
tournament at Pfeiffer’s gym on Feb. 15.

Five Stanly teams competed against multiple teams from Rowan and Cabarrus early
colleges. The bracket system was used for elimination to eventually have one winner.

The Stanly teams ended the tournament all over the board, with one team in second place.

Students and staff from both schools attended the tournament to cheer on and support the students.
