BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA –The Eastern Florida State College women’s soccer team will be hosting the inaugural Region 8 Tournament this season.
The addition of Daytona State College and ASA Miami gives the region five teams and the ability to hold a tournament to determine who advances to the District Final for the first time.
“We are excited about hosting the Region Tournament and about having five teams in our conference,” Eastern Florida State College women’s soccer coach Jeff Carr said.
“The addition of ASA Miami and Daytona State to the conference will be very challenging with great teams and great coaches.”
The Titans have won the conference title the past three seasons and are coming off a banner season in which they went undefeated in the regular season, falling in the national championship final.
The schedule poses some tough challenges for Eastern Florida beginning with the opener against Butler Community College who were 21-3 last season, reaching the national semifinals.
“Butler is always in the hunt for a National Championship, (head coach) Adam (Hunter) does a great job with their program and It should be a fun game,” said Carr who defeated Butler in the two schools’ only meeting during the 2012 regular season.
It is part of a seven-game weekend that will host five other teams kicking off with the Titans-Butler game on Aug. 26. Broward Community College, Polk State College, Southwestern Illinois College and Johnson County Community College in Kansas City will also compete over the 10 days.
“The opening weekend has a lot of great soccer programs playing at Titan Stadium and we are thrilled to host them all,” Carr said.
