SOCCER TEAM OF THE DECADE
Yavapai College is the JUCO Men’s Division One Soccer Team of the Decade. The Roughriders captured four national championships (2002, 2003, 2007, 2008) during the 10-year period. The next junior college on the list has one (Meridian-Miss., Bryant & Stratton-NY, Mercer County-NJ, Georgia Perimeter, Jefferson-MO, Tyler-Tex.) The Roughriders qualified for ten consecutive national tournaments finishing second in the country twice. Thirty-four championships were won in the decade including ten consecutive conference, region and district titles. Yavapai lost only two home matches during the 10 years—both in overtime and playing down a man. The 2008 team posted a record of 26-0-0, the most wins of any men’s intercollegiate soccer team in one season.
