This year, Colorado Christian University was proud to send the
Cougar women's soccer team to Kissimmee, Florida for the NCCAA National Women's
Soccer Championships. The team was seeded #8 in the National Championship
Tournament, and immediately took on the #1 seeded competitors, California
Baptist University, in their first game. Unfortunately, the Lady Cougars took a
rough loss at 3-0 and will compete again on Thursday (12/1). They'll take on the
loser of the Mount Vernon Nazarene University vs. Oklahoma Wesleyan University
Only two weeks ago, CCU's team fought hard in the NCCAA
Central Region Championships, representing the school in Waxahachie, Texas.
After a 5-15-1 season, all the women were hungry for a victory in the NCCAA
competitions. The team was hoping for a chance to play in Nationals, weary of a
mostly losing season and ready to play at the level of competition to which they
knew they were capable.
In their first game of the regional
tournament, the Colorado Christian University women took on Southwestern
Christian University, dominating with a 3-0 win. In their second game, the Lady
Cougars defeated the Oklahoma Wesleyan University Eagles, securing a place in
the championship game. After those two victories, the team was charged up on
their wins--only a 90 minute battle against Mid-America Christian University
stood in the way. CCU fought hard to earn a 2-0 victory over MACU, capturing the
Regional Championship banner and securing themselves a place in the National
Tournament. Read the complete recap here.
Regardless of how the
final game in the National Championship tournament results, the women are proud
to boast possession of the Central Region Championship Title for the second year
in University history.
