The St. Francis College, Brooklyn Heights, men’s soccer team celebrated its 50th anniversary as part of a special Alumni Day at Brooklyn Bridge Park on Sept. 22.
Since 1968, the men’s soccer team has been a staple of the college’s athletic program. Each year, the team graduates top-level student-athletes who continue to compete for the love of the game and enter their careers with memories that last forever.
“To know the men’s soccer team has such a strong foundation rooted from 50 years of tradition, history and success is a fantastic thing,” said head coach Tom Giovatto. “No team is successful on their own, and no program can achieve greatness without the commitment of those who came before.”
The Terriers have won seven Northeast Conference tournament championships, including four of the past five. The school has played in the Division I NCAA Tournament eight times.
