Soccer 2013
Thanks to everyone for their support of Merritt College Men’s Soccer for the 2013 season!

The Thunderbirds made it to the playoffs for first time in school history and won the Bay Valley Conference for first time, finishing first in the state in goals scored. Our historic season ended with a 4-2 playoff loss to powerhouse Santa Rosa on November 23. We played our playoff game missing a few key players due to injury.

The team finished overall with a 13-4-4 record, which is by far our best record ever. And with only losing five sophomores this season, our future looks very bright.

Congratulations to all who received awards in this amazing season:
