This Fall 2014 soccer season marks the 4th year of  soccer at NTCC. The team has been ranked within the National Junior College Athletic Association standings throughout the whole season. Making it to Nationals for the program is the first time in history for NTCC soccer to advance this far within the district.

Head Coach Donovan Dowling told the guys after the game that getting a chance to go to Arizona was proof of that.

“We’re not going down there to have fun,” Dowling said. “We’re going down there to win it.”
