Women’s Soccer Team Makes Unexpected Run to Region Final
MCCC's women’s soccer team came as close as you can get to winning the Region 19 title this season.

Read more here.

Now for Mercer’s Other Soccer Program
While there’s been lots of focus on Mercer's men’s and women’s soccer teams this fall, there has been another soccer group on campus that has held practices every Friday since September. Nine MCCC Education students have been partnering with DREAM (Developing Real Expectations for Achieving Mastery) students at the Mercer Soccer Stadium to get exercise, have fun and build friendships.
