The men’s soccer team captured a second place finish in the Gulf South Conference after defeating Lee University on Friday, Oct. 28.

With the win, the Hawks pulled off their best conference finish in team history.

The GSC tournament will be hosted by Mississippi College, who finished first in the GSC.

The Hawks will not have to play in the first round, which was played Tuesday, Nov. 1. Instead, they will begin tournament play Nov. 4 against the University of West Florida or the University of Alabama in Huntsville. It is something the team anticipates.

“Finishing second in the conference means we have a bye into the seminal of the tournament, while other teams have to play a quarter final game,” graduate assistant and keeper Austen Trevers said.

“This is the best that the men’s soccer team has finished and to do it in my senior year is awesome.”
