West Windsor, N.J. -- Mercer County Community College has announced that it will serve as host for the 2009 National Junior College Athletic Association Division I Men's Soccer Tournament. Dates for the tournament will be November 19-22, 2009. An opening night banquet will be held on November 18.

According to Mercer Athletics Director John Simone, eight teams from across the country will compete for the title at the MCCC Soccer Complex. "We are excited to have the national soccer spotlight back in Mercer County," Simone said. "This tournament will provide soccer fans with some top level games right in their backyard."
