Division II Concord adds men's soccer

Concord University is adding men's soccer and women's golf, starting next fall.

CU women's soccer coach Steve Barrett will take the reigns of the fledgling men's program.

"I am excited at the prospect of starting up a men's soccer program here at Concord," he said. "I plan on working hard to ensure that soccer will be played at a high level for many years to come.  This is an exciting opportunity for the local soccer community and I am thrilled to be a part of it."

The Mountain Lions will now offer more varsity sports (18) than any other four-year college in the state. They compete in the (NCAA Division II) West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletics Conference, which includes long-time small-college powers West Virginia Wesleyan and Davis & Elkins.
