MCCC Soccer Standout Jamie Ervin Commits to Rowan University


West Windsor, N.J. – Even amidst a national athletics shutdown Mercer County Community College (MCCC) women’s soccer star Jamie Ervin has something to smile about.

The sophomore announced on Tuesday, March 17 that she will transfer to Rowan University to continue her education and soccer career.

“From meeting the coach and some of the players, I believe the Rowan team is dedicated to and driven by success,” Ervin said. “They are very welcoming, and all have the same goal, which is to work hard.”

Ervin isn’t a stranger to hard work. She was the face of MCCC soccer, tallying awards and breaking records throughout the season.

Four games into the regular season Ervin was named National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) player of the week. The honor came during a week in which Ervin netted 10 goals, four of which were in a pair of shutout victories over Rowan College of South Jersey Gloucester and Community College of Baltimore County Catonsville.

Then, following a berth in the NJCAA Region 19 playoffs, Ervin was named to the All-Region First Team, and earned Region Player of the Year. She finished her season scoring 37 goals, pushing her career total to 60 (including the playoffs).

Joining Rowan as a member of the class of 2023, Ervin will be playing for a squad that most recently made it to the semi-final round of the New Jersey Athletic Conference tournament.

“Jamie will do extremely well at Rowan. She is such a nice young lady who gets along with everyone,” said women’s soccer Head Coach Elyse Diamond.

“She is hard working, committed, and never once complained. Who could ask for more? I am very grateful for the time she was here. Jaime was first class all the way."

She will also be suiting up next to former teammate and rival Kelsey Holt. Ervin and Holt shared the field when they were younger, eventually facing off against each other when Ervin’s alma mater Ewing High played Lawrence High School.

“I knew this [year] was going to be something special since day one of preseason,” Ervin said earlier this season.

“Now, I’m most excited to be among new, welcoming, driven players.”
