First-time Regional champs take on Nationals

NORFOLK, Neb. - A northeast Nebraska women's soccer team sealed a Regional Championship for the first time in program history, and now has a chance at a National Title. 

The Northeast Community College women's soccer team will head to Georgia in June for the NJCAA Championship Tournament.

"It's the first time we've ever had this opportunity to go," said coach Chad Miller. "I'm completed excited. It's a little bit surreal."

With just 16 girls on the roster, the season has been a battle. 

"They worked so hard this year," Miller said. " They've practiced so hard. They've played through injuries. Our numbers are lower than they typically are so there's no sitting out."

The Hawks head to Georgia on June 1 and will compete on June 4.
