Posted: Updated:

(Source: Owens Sports Information)

The 2012-13 year for Express athletics saw four Ohio Community College Athletic Conference (OCCAC) titles, four region/district championships and four National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) D-II National Tournament appearances.

Those accomplishments tied the college's record for most OCCAC titles in one year and broke the record for most national tournament appearances in one year.
 
Following the year, a total of five Express student-athletes earned NJCAA All-American honors, as well. It is the most in one year in Express athletics history. Additionally, the Express athletic department finished the year 23rd in the nation in the overall standings in the scholarship division of the National Alliance of Two Year College Athletic Administrators (NATYCAA) Learfield Sports Directors' Cup.
 
Academically, 31 Express student-athletes made the OCCAC All-Academic team, which required at least a 3.3 GPA. At the national level, nine Express student-athletes earned NJCAA Academic Student-Athlete Awards, including two teams that earned NJCAA Academic Team awards.
It was the first time that even one team earned national academic honors, and the nine student-athletes earning academic honors is the second most in school history.
