NEW LONDON, Conn.-As the fall semester winds down and our Cadet-Athletes are wrapped up in exams the Athletic Department will take a look at the Top Moments from the Coast Guard fall sports season. The Department has compiled a top-ten list and will unveil one a day for ten business days starting with number ten and culminating with the announcement of the top moment on Tuesday, December 24th.
Today we look at the accomplishments of the women's soccer team who earn the #7 spot in our Top Moments Series. The Coast Guard women's soccer team secured entry to the New England Women's and Men's Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Tournament for the first time in ten years following a season in which they went 6-11-2 (3-5-2 NEWMAC).
The Bears exceeded nearly all external expectations to qualify for the tournament despite being picked last in the 11-team NEWMAC in the preseason coaches' poll. Along the way the club also tied a program record by posting five shutouts as a team while their six wins were the most for the Bears since 2010 when they also totaled six victories.
Stay tuned as tomorrow's installment of the Top Moment series will reveal the #6 moment from the fall season.
