Following a 2–0 win over the Rochester Community and Technical College Yellowjackets Saturday, Oct. 16, 2010, the second over RCTC this season, the Blue Knights women’s soccer team is primed to enter the NJCAA Region XI Tournament. DCTC’s top in-state rival, RCTC is ranked #5 in the latest NJCAA Women’s Soccer Division III Top 10 National Poll.

“This has been a season of unexpected interruptions,” said Head Coach Cam Stoltz, referring to five players who have been sidelined with injuries, including Alexis Osborn, a promising freshman forward, and Emily Jorgenson, a talented midfielder. “As of now, we are slated as the third seed going into the Region XI quarterfinal. We are lined up to host the sixth seed, probably Iowa Lakes, at home. We have been competitive in every match so far and are set to turn it on in the playoffs.”
The quarterfinal game is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2010, at the Ames Soccer Complex on the DCTC Rosemount campus.
