Men's Soccer Goes to Nationals | Judson University Christian College
Men's Soccer Earns At-Large Berth for NCCAA National Championship

Men's Soccer NCCAA Championship(Greenville, S.C. - November 18, 2019) The National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) has awarded Judson with an at-large bid to the 2018 NCCAA Men's Soccer National Championship in Kissimmee, Fla. The Eagles are guaranteed two matches in pool play between Monday, Nov. 26, and Wednesday, Nov. 28. If Judson advances, the semifinal round is Friday, Nov. 30, and the final is Saturday, Dec. 1.

"We are very excited to be back in Florida after a few years. Judson Men's Soccer has a history of participating NCCAA nationals with significant success, including multiple championships," said Head Coach Rafa Heck. "It's a great tournament on amazing facilities. We have been training in winter weather conditions to get ready for it. The guys are excited, and I am really excited for them as well."

Judson is no stranger to the NCCAA National Tournament, advancing to the tournament 19 times prior. This includes six national championships. The last time the Eagles made the NCCAA tournament was 2013.

"The NCCAA is a great organization and we are excited that we can represent Judson University down in Florida," said Chad Gassman, director of Athletics. "The men's soccer team had a great year and we look forward to extending our season down in nationals."

The Eagles earned their berth by going 10-6-3 overall during the season, including a 3-2 overtime victory against then-#7 Cardinal Stritch. The Eagles also tied #6 Bellevue and drew against William Woods, who also was ranked in the NAIA polls earlier this season.

Congratulations to the Judson University Men's Soccer team for continuing a very successful season!
