DSC hosts NJCAA Division 1 National Soccer Championship showdown
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (Nov. 15, 2018) - Daytona State College has been the epicenter
of National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) soccer this week, with 12
teams from across the U.S. vying for Division 1 National Championship honors.
Following three days of pool play games, four teams now advance to the 2018 NJCAA Division 1 Semifinals slated for Friday, Nov. 16, at the DSC Soccer Stadium located on the college's Daytona Beach Campus.
The first match kicks off at noon, when Pima Community College goes up again Monroe College. That match will be followed at 3 p.m. by a duel between Eastern Florida State College and Barton Community College.
Semifinal winners will advance to the championship final match at 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17.
Each game will be broadcast live on WDSC 15.
The national tournament comes to DSC just one year after the college completed its new soccer stadium. In addition to being home for the college's men's and women's soccer teams, the 800-seat facility also serves as a venue for local soccer clubs, school groups and other community partners. It is a hub for soccer clinics, prep and club sports and movie nights.
The tournament has drawn over 100 NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association) Division I, II and NAIA (National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) colleges and universities from around the country to recruit for transfer talent, including the University of North Carolina, Michigan State, Ohio University, the University of South Carolina and Virginia Tech, to name just a few.
