Mar 26, 2019 | by Rocco Geppi | CCBC Essex Sports Information | 443-559-7614 (mobile)BALTIMORE COUNTY, MD – Community College of Baltimore County Essex Athletics today announced that it has named Mike Seney head women’s basketball coach. The Knights will begin play this fall after a 15-year absence.
For the past five seasons, Seney has led the Harford Community College women’s basketball team. He compiled a 135-15 (.900) overall record, made four NJCAA Division I Women’s Basketball National Tournament appearances, and won five straight NJCAA Region XX Division I and Maryland Juco tournament championships. In addition, Seney led the Fighting Owls to three NJCAA District C Championships, and currently has an 82-game winning streak as head coach against conference opponents.
“I want to thank God, first and foremost, for the incredible opportunity to be the head coach at CCBC Essex and lead the Knights women’s basketball program for its first season since 2003-04,” said Seney. “Thank you to [CCBC Essex Athletic Administrator] Greg Witkop and the entire Essex staff for welcoming me to the Knight family.”
Seney has mentored three NJCAA Division I All-Americans, three Maryland Juco Players of the Year (2016-17, 2017-18, and 2018-19), 16 All-Maryland Juco team recipients, and helped guide 22 student-athletes to Division I or II institutions, most of whom received full scholarships.
“I’m grateful to all of my student athletes and staff at Harford,” said Seney. “We truly left a legacy in Bel Air that I think will last a long time.
“I’m focused and committed to building upon these experiences and my promise is to bring the same passion, determination, and commitment to CCBC Essex.”
Seney joined Harford’s women’s basketball staff as an assistant during the 2013-14 season and helped them to their then third best record (23-7) in school history, and its first NJCAA Region XX Division I title. In 2014-15, the Fighting Owls began the season 2-4 and would go 21-2 after Seney took over as head coach.
“We are thrilled to welcome a very talented coach in Mike Seney to our college,” said Witkop. “He has demonstrated the passion, work ethic, and network to provide outstanding opportunities for our future women’s basketball student athletes. His qualities have not only been evident on the court, but off it as well, as he has successfully prepared and graduated student athletes to four-year institutions.”
Prior to Harford, Seney coached AAU teams in the Delaware area. He played football at NCAA Division III Nichols College (Dudley, Mass.) and later transferred to Wilmington University (New Castle, Del.) where his brother, Malachi, was a guard on the men’s basketball team.
Seney is currently finishing his bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications at University of Maryland University College. He resides in North East, Md.
