As the season came to a conclusion, the men’s soccer team had one of its best years in school history. They capped off a 14-3-2 regular season and took the conference by storm.
Even though many were surprised, the players and coaches knew their own talent and were not shocked. They claimed the Northeast-10 regular season title. Right now they have soared all the way up to no. 12 nationally, which is truly remarkable.
When asked about the preseason expectations of the team and how special it was to be a part of this year’s team, sophomore Michael Rincon said, “We expected to have a great season and win the regular season and make the NCAA tournament for the first time in Merrimack history. I also wanted to win the NE-10 tournament, but at least we were a finalist.
Finally, being a part of a team that’s making history here is truly amazing.” This year was one for the history books for men’s soccer and means so much to not only the players and coaches, but the school. The soccer teams kicks off the NCAA tournament tonight 9 at 6 p.m. against Franklin Pierce.
