NVC Soccer Making a Name for Itself

Congratulations to Northwest Vista College soccer coaches, Leland Hammonds of the NVC Women’s Team, and David Galindo of the NVC Men’s Team. They both just ended their seasons with stand-out results for teams that just formed less than two years ago.

NVC Men’s Soccer Team

The NVC men’s team finished with a record of four wins, three losses, and two draws. The team defeated UIW, Texas A&M Galveston, Prairie View A&M, and Sam Houston State University.

NVC student, Nicholas Blake (pictured left), was this season’s Most Valuable Player.

David said this season proved to be much more competitive playing in the Lone Star South Conference of the Texas Collegiate Soccer League (TCSL). The NVC Men’s Team was able to advance to a more competitive conference due to it having an undefeated season in the development conference last season.

Leland said his team finished the calendar year (spring and fall) with a combined record of 13 wins, one loss and two draws in their division of TCSL.

In early October, Vista was briefly the only community college in the Top 10 based off of the NIRSA Championship Series Region 4 Women’s Soccer Rankings. The Texas Collegiate Soccer League is a part of NIRSA Soccer. Others on that Top 10 list included four-year universities, such as UT, A&M, Washington and Kansas.

The player of the year was Amber Vandervort, who finished her Vista career with 34 goals in 14 career appearances. Vista’s defense allowed a minuscule of just six goals in their final 13 games of their inaugural season.

Way to go Wildcats!
