BYU Soccer TeamIN a grueling three-day, six-game tournament in Tuscaloosa, Ala., the men’s soccer team won the Collegiate Club National Championship for the fifth time in six years.

The Cougars dominated the tournament, winning all six games, including a 4-1 win over rival and 2000 champion Penn State. John V. Morris, ’02, BYU‘s starting goalie and the tournament MVP, helped the Cougars seal their championship with a 4-0 shut-out against Illinois in the final game.

Although several players are graduating or leaving on missions, Coach Christopher N. Watkins, ’98, expects to be in the championships again next year. “We’ve got so much talent on this team, it’s scary.”
