Alumni Soccer Game: Former Yavapai College soccer players from the 20th century continued their “Yavapai mystique” with a last second goal against the 21st Century alumni resulting in a 3-3 tie at Ken Lindley Field on October 11, 2014. A few of the goals were of POMO variety.

Yavapai College Soccer Match: The 2014 Roughriders hosted Paradise Valley Community College at Ken Lindley Field, site of the 2014 NJCAA National Championship Game, in a match featuring over 70 alumni in attendance. Polo shirts were provided to all former players courtesy of Justin Meram (Yavapai 2007, 2008) and his foundation. Meram is a current attacker for the Columbus Crew of Major League Soccer.

Social Hour: A social hour for alumni and friends of the program followed. The event did not end in regulation time. Extra time was needed as been the tradition.

Yavapai College, the City of Prescott and the Town of Prescott Valley will host the 2014 NJCAA National Tournament, Nov. 18-23, 2014. The tournament banquet will take place at Tim’s Toyota Center in Prescott Valley on Monday, Nov. 17 at 6:00 p.m. Tickets will be available by contacting the athletic department. Andre Luciano (Yavapai 1989, 1990), current head women’s soccer coach at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, will be the keynote speaker.

We would like to express our sincere appreciation to those former players for their time and consideration in returning to Prescott with their family members on Alumni Homecoming Weekend. Your participation and friendship will never be forgotten. As the Yavapai College head soccer coach said prior to the 1990 national championship game–“We will win as a team today and we will walk as a team forever.” Thank you everyone! Continue success in business, education and/or with the sport of soccer! Enjoy your family! As the sign above our soccer locker room door states, “Tomorrow Is Promised To No One.” Take care, keep in touch and thanks again.
