Pima Community College Men’s Soccer team (15-2) has been invited as the No. 2 seed to the NJCAA DII Men’s Soccer National Championship, taking place Nov. 15 through Nov. 20.

Pima lost the regional tournament to Phoenix College in penalty kicks to secure a bid to the national tournament. However, it received one of four at-large bids thanks to its strong performances this season and consistently being in the nation’s top 10.

The Aztecs are in Pool B along with No. 7 Southeastern Community College in Burlington, Iowa, and No. 11 Muskegon Community College in Muskegon, Michigan.

Pima’s national championship pool play games will take place Nov. 15 and Nov. 17, with the semifinals being held Nov. 19 and the final on Nov. 20.
