Three members of the Northern Essex Community College Knights basketball team were selected to the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJJCAA) Region XXI All Region team for the 2015/2016 season.

Matt Jameson of Haverhill was named to the Second Team and Dominic Dar and Kevin Brito, both of Lowell, were named to the Third Team. Brito was also named to the NJCAA All Region Tournament Team.

Following a season filled with challenges, the NECC Knights still finished third in both the Region and the State after a loss to the number two seed – Bristol Community College. That game ended in a 78-62 loss for the Knights. The Knights ended the season on a high note however with a positive 19-12 record.

Northern Essex offers seven varsity sports teams including men’s basketball, women’s basketball, baseball, softball, track & field, and volleyball. NECC’s philosophy is that the classroom experience is what makes a well-rounded athlete.
