Co-Lin to reinstate men and women’s soccer programs

WESSON – The Copiah-Lincoln Community Board of Trustees voted to reinstate the men and women's soccer programs beginning in the fall of 2020. Both programs were suspended after the 2017 season.

"We have had an overwhelming interest from our students, community, and our board of trustees," said Co-Lin President Dr. Jane Hulon. "We feel the timing is right to reinstate the program with the addition of our new state-of-the-art turf field in Stone Stadium."

After careful consideration and research, the Board of Trustees considered the financial support for the program compared to other colleges, the academic success of student-athletes, and the overall competitiveness of the program.

"We are really excited about bringing soccer back to Co-Lin," said Co-Lin Athletic Director Bryan Nobile. "We have excellent high school programs in our district and we are ready to hit the ground running beginning with hiring a coach who can go out and recruit for the 2020 season."

The reinstatement of men's and women's soccer gives Co-Lin a total of 12 varsity sports. Men's sports include Archery, Baseball, Basketball, Football, Golf, and Tennis while the women's sports include Archery, Basketball Softball, and Tennis.
