Remembering George Bataitis

George Bataitis, Jamestown Community College's first athletics director and founder of the athletics program at JCC, recently passed away. He left an indelible mark on JCC, and he will be sorely missed. His legacy at JCC will live on in the athletics program that he built and in the annual George Bataitis Open Golf Tournament, which has raised thousands of dollars over the years for scholarships for JCC's student-athletes.

Compete for Championships at JCC

It’s an exciting time to be connected to Jamestown Community College athletics. In just the past few years, our 14 athletics teams on two campuses—which are part of the Western New York Athletic Conference—have done everything from clinch conference titles to challenge for National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) championships.

  • In 2012, the Jamestown campus volleyball team was Region III champion and finished fourth in the NJCAA Division III National Women’s Volleyball Championships.
  • The Cattaraugus County women’s soccer team had its best season in school history in 2012, finishing 18-3, winning the WNYAC and Region 3B Championships, and placing sixth in the NJCAA National Tournament.
  • The Jamestown Campus men’s golf team placed second in the 2012 NJCAA Division III National Championships.

​Whether it’s a first start in a college game or playing in front of the Jamestown or Cattaraugus County crowd, traveling across the country to the national championships or cheering from the stands as your roommate hits the game-winning shot, connect to a vibrant athletics scene at JCC.
