Under his leadership, the team has won eight state titles, two regional crowns, and one national championship. In addition to his many responsibilities at CMCC, Gonyea also serves as President of the USCAA Board of Directors.

In addition to men’s and women’s basketball, soccer, and volleyball, CMCC also offers baseball, softball, and coed golf. Anyone interested in the athletic programs at CMCC is encouraged to contact Gonyea at 755-5251 or at [email protected] More information is also available online at
