The ranking marked the 11th consecutive time the Titans have finished the fall season with a national ranking.

The Titans also have finished their spring championship season with 11 consecutive appearances in the NJCAA Division I national tournament and a national ranking, all under head coach Jamie Howell.

“Rankings are what they are, based on your finishes,” Howell said. “We are better than ninth on paper but the proof is in the performance and we need to have more weeks this spring like we had (in winning) at Darton State in October. Rankings will take care of themselves with good play.”

PROOF IS IN THE PERFORMANCE

Odessa College and McLennan Community College, both of Texas, were ranked first and second in the poll. Indian Hills Community College of Iowa was third while defending national champion Central Alabama Community College and Midland College, also of Texas, tied for fourth.

Iowa Western Community College and Wallace State Community College of Alabama tied for sixth. Faulkner State of Alabama was eighth and Dodge City Community College of Kansas was 10th.

Also in the fall season, Eastern Florida State College’s men’s and women’s soccer teams finished with national rankings after playing in their respective NJCAA Division I national tournaments, the women for the second straight year.

SOCCER FINISHED ITS FIFTH SEASON

Men’s soccer finished its inaugural season fifth in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll while the women finished their fourth season in seventh.

The men were 14-1-3 and the women 12-3-1. The NJCAA poll ranked the Titans men fifth and the women 18th.
