The men's soccer program at Lake Tahoe Community College has had tremendous success since launching in 2014. The team has comprised an impressive overall record of 67-25-21 (.686), and an in-conference record of 38-6-9 (.801). The team has won the Golden Valley Conference twice, in 2014 and 2015. Twenty-six talented players have been chosen as All-Golden Valley Conference players, and another six achieved Conference Player of the Year awards. The men Coyotes have been nationally ranked as high as #3 in the country three times, in 2014, 2015 and 2018. Two players have been selected as All-Americans by United Soccer Coaches. And in 2015, the Coyotes made it all the way to the CCCAA Final Four, losing in the semi-finals that year. Prior to the start of the 2019 season, the men's team was ranked #14 in the nation.

 

 

It is with deep regret that we inform you that the California Community College Athletic Association has placed LTCC’s men’s soccer program on a two-year postseason ban, affecting both the 2019 and 2020 seasons. These sanctions are the direct result of the actions of a prior head men’s soccer coach who is no longer affiliated with LTCC. This ban is not the fault of any former or current LTCC players, or new recruits joining the program. LTCC vehemently disagreed with the ruling and expressed that in an appeal that was denied by the CCCAA state appeals committee. 

Current men’s team players have been informed of this sanction. Both the current head men’s coach, Jeremy Evans, and Athletic Director Steve Berry are available to answer questions players or recruits may have.

Despite the postseason ban, LTCC’s men’s team can still compete for a conference title and a national title through United Soccer Coaches. The men's team can still be nationally ranked, and players can still receive individual All-Conference, All-Region, and All-American recognition. LTCC sophomore players will be able to participate in the annual sophomore showcase that attracts several dozen four-year coaches each December. Although the postseason ban will be in effect, there are still a lot of academic and athletic goals that players can achieve, and the program will revamp its game schedule to play more four-year, semi-pro and pro teams to increase our student-athletes’ exposure. 

We look forward to a successful season in 2019 as we compete for a conference title and the national recognition this team deserves. Thank you for your continued support of Coyote Athletics.
