WOMEN’S SOCCER PREVIEW
ABOVE VIDEO: Over five seasons as a program Eastern Florida’s women’s soccer team has won 57 games, lost 12 and tied five. But there is one victory that has eluded head coach Jeff Carr and his players: a triumph in the NJCAA Women’s Division I National Championship game. (EFSC video)
The Titans have competed in the national tournament the last three years, finishing as runner-up in 2012, falling in the first round in 2013 and losing on penalty kicks in their semifinal in 2014.
The tournament will be held in November at the Titan Soccer Complex on Eastern Florida’s Melbourne Campus for the third straight year, the Titans hosting through 2016. And Carr believes he has a team capable of once again competing in the tournament.
MEN’S SOCCER PREVIEW

With only a handful of returnees from last season’s team that finished one game short of a second consecutive national tournament berth, Twelvetrees knew he needed to retool and he believes he did.New faces will populate the backline, most of the midfield and up top.
In goal playing time will be shared by All-America Kekuta Jatta, who transferred from the former Georgia Perimeter College, and returnees Nate Himes and Justin Walker.
