The Delta College women’s soccer team placed second at the NJCAA Division III National Tournament in Rockford, Ill., recently.
“Making it to nationals for the second straight year is amazing,” said co-head coach Damon Amey. “This year we had a mission to make it to the championship game and win. We did not quite make our goal, but number two in the country is something to hold our head up high about.”
Delta finished 16-2-0. Their 16-game winning streak is a Delta College record.
Three players from Delta’s team, sophomore goalkeeper Kalyn Breckenridge, sophomore defender/midfielder Kyla Breckenridge and sophomore midfielder Hope Emington, made the all-tourney team.
The roster also includes Dow High graduate Audrey Niederstadt and Bullock Creek graduate Kaylee Meissner, among others.
Delta has already begun putting together next year’s team and hopes to build upon its success.
“We will have a bunch of experience returning next season and we have a very good recruiting class coming in,” said Amey.
