Men’s Soccer – Big Game and Big Awards

The Men’s Soccer team begins the national championship tournament on Saturday with Belhaven hosting the first round game at 4 pm on Newell Field. (See an earlier post for the full schedule if we advance.)

This will be the last opportunity to see our team at home – and this is a big game, so we need a great crowd.

Many of our players have also been recognized with significant awards.  Here is the full list.
