National Soccer Championship Comes to PGCC


Washington Freedom soccer star, Brianna Curry, speaks at awards banquet

LARGO, Md. (October 29, 2010)—For the first time in history, Prince George’s Community College will host the National Junior College Athletic Association’s Women’s Soccer Championship, Thursday, November 4, through Sunday, November 7, at the college’s Largo campus.

Eight teams will be competing to be named the best team in the country as they take to the Prince George’s Community College’s newly renovated soccer field. Students will play four games on Thursday, November 4 and Friday, November 5. Three games will be played on Sunday.

“Without the support of partners like Chick-fil-A and the Gaylord National Resort we wouldn’t be able to welcome these remarkable athletes to Prince George’s County and to the college,” said Jo Ann Todaro, athletic director at Prince George’s Community College. “This historic competition should not only highlight the area’s growing interest in soccer but it should also build greater relationships with professional organizations like Washington Freedom,” she added.

Briana Scurry, a member of Washington Freedom and starting goalkeeper for the US Women’s National Team (1994-1999) and the 2003 Women’s World Cup, will be speaking at the championship awards banquet on November 3. The dinner begins at 6pm on the Largo campus. Scurry was named WUSA Goalkeeper of the Year in 2003 and was a three-time all-WUSA selection.
