College Of The Canyons To Host Two Fall Sports State Championships
College of the Canyons will play host to two California Community
College Athletic Association (CCCAA) state championships – women’s golf
and men’s and women’s soccer – in November and December respectively.
The women’s golf tournament will be a two-day tournament held on Nov. 17-18 at Olivas Links in Ventura. The men’s and women’s soccer state titles will be decided on the campus of College of the Canyons in Cougar Stadium on Dec. 4-7.
“We are fortunate to have the opportunity to host our first two state championships this year and showcase the great facilities that we have here at College of the Canyons,” COC athletic director Chuck Lyon said.
This is the first time that the college will be hosting the women’s golf state tournament and the first time holding a state championship event at College of the Canyons.
Following a two-year stay at Fresno Pacific University in conjunction with the CCCAA Championship Festival, the last soccer games of the season will rotate to a northern or southern school every other year, with a two-year commitment. The title game will return to Cougar Stadium in 2010 after its first visit this December.
Admission for the women’s golf tournament is free, while the soccer matches will cost $8 for general admission and $5 for identified students, faculty, staff, senior citizens age 60 and over, and children 12 years of age or under.
