BERKELEY COLLEGE TO COMPETE IN
Three Berkeley College teams are headed to Virginia Beach, VA, to participate in the 2016 United States Collegiate Athletic Association National Championships on Friday, November 11, 2016. The Berkeley College Men’s and Women’s Cross Country teams will compete on Friday morning, while the New Jersey Men’s Soccer team, which earned the No. 9 seed, will play on Friday afternoon.
“As we prepare to watch our talented student-athletes compete on the national stage, we are filled with Berkeley Pride,” said Michael J. Smith, President of Berkeley College. “We are so proud of our teams and their accomplishments. The dedication and focus that they have exhibited in their sports and in the classroom to get them this far is admirable.”
Results and recaps will be posted to www.BerkeleyCollegeKnights.com. Live video will also be available for select soccer matches in the tournament at www.theUSCAA.com.
Berkeley College Cross Country
In what has been called the greatest Cross Country season in Berkeley College history, Head Coach Adam Rosen and Associate Head Coach Michael Lincoln paced both the Men’s and Women’s squads over the course of five regular-season meets and a Hudson Valley Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Championship meet.
“Our runners have been so dedicated from Day One back in the summer, and they’ve truly earned the privilege of competing on the National circuit in Virginia Beach,” said Adam Rosen, Head Coach. “They’ve all sacrificed so much and have worked extremely hard over the course of this season, and it’s great to see these student-athletes achieving success and supporting one another. We are very eager to make this trip.”
Berkeley College Soccer
The Berkeley College New Jersey Men’s Soccer team finalized its regular season with a 10-6 record, a mark that included key victories over opponents Penn State Hazleton, Keystone College, and Penn State Brandywine. The Knights will compete in “Pool D,” a pool that will include No. 4-seeded Dean College and No. 5-seeded Florida National University.
“Entering this 2016 season, this team had one goal in mind – and that was to qualify for the 2016 USCAA National Men’s Soccer Tournament,” said Bruno Ferreira, Head Coach. “This was a very telling season for us, because we got off to such a quick start, then battled some adversity, and then finished strong. We have a great group of student-athletes who are hungry to compete and win.”
