NYACK RECEIVES FIRST-EVER BID TO NCAA MEN'S SOCCER EAST REGION TOURNAMENT
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (November 8, 2011) – Nyack College has claimed its first-ever bid to the NCAA Division II East Region Tournament, as the NCAA selection committee released this year's championship bracket. The Warriors received the No. 6 seed in the region and will face No. 3 C.W. Post University at Southern New Hampshire University on Friday, Nov. 11, at 6:00 pm in the opening round.
Nyack is coming off its second Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC) Championship in three seasons with a 1-0 overtime victory over top-seeded Post University last Saturday. The game was tied, 0-0, into the 98th minute until Nyack junior Josh Hacking netted his first goal of the season to give the Warriors the dramatic victory.
Nyack enters the NCAA Tournament with a 13-5-2 record, while C.W. Post is 16-2-1. The Warriors and Pioneer already met once this season, with Nyack notching a 1-0 upset victory on Oct. 18 when C.W. Post was ranked fifth in the nation. Arturo Garcia scored Nyack's goal in the 73rd minute.
