Women’s soccer receives at-large bid to make NJCAA tournament

The Laramie County Community College women’s soccer team will be playing in the NJCAA National Tournament after winning an at-large bid.

 

The Golden Eagles did not make it to districts this season after falling short in the Region IX final against Western Wyoming Community College 1-0 on Oct. 27.  The Golden Eagles found out on Nov. 5 via the NJCAA website that they had made it to the national tournament.

 

The Golden Eagles are scheduled to play at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 12 against Arizona Western College. Their second match will be at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 13 against Eastern Florida State College. The tournament is being held Nov. 12-17 at the Foley Sports Complex in Foley, Alabama.

 

Coach Jim Gardner said the Golden Eagles have never played Arizona Western College. He said he only knows about Arizona Western from what he has seen in films.

 

Gardner said that his team is healthy but is experiencing injuries to midfielder freshman Faith Meredith, who started nine games and has scored five times for the Golden Eagles this season.

 

This tournament means a lot to the team, because it means the school receives recognition and it’s a testament to the strength of the program, Gardner said.
