Pima men's soccer snags No. 1 seed for NJCAA Tournament

The firsts continue to pile on for the Pima Community College men’s soccer team as the seedings and groupings were announced for the NJCAA Division I Tournament on Wednesday.

The Aztecs (22-2) will be the No. 1 seed for the first time in program history as the tournament begins on Monday in Daytona, Fla.

The Aztecs will be in Pool A and play No. 12 seed Muskegon Community College (Mich.) (12-2-2) on Monday and No. 8 seed Northeast Texas Community College (16-2-2) on Wednesday. Both games will be at 9:30 a.m. (ET). The winner of the group will head to the semifinal round on Friday.

“It’s a credit to an incredible season and the guys have done really well at this point,” Pima coach David Cosgrove said. “It’s a great honor for the program but there’s still a lot of work to be done. Now we have to go out there and play well.” 

All the games will be played at the Daytona State Soccer Stadium.
