VIDEO: A Look Back At The Soccer Team's Championship Weekend
The Mean Green Won Its 11th Conference Title On Sunday
DENTON – The North Texas soccer team picked up its 11th conference championship in program history when the Mean Green captured the Conference USA championship title on Sunday with its 1-0 victory against Marshall.
“So much heart, so much character, tremendous leadership by the eight seniors,” said North Texas John Hedlund about the 2015 team. “I couldn’t be more proud of this team because I thought we were the best team this year from start to finish. We showed that during the regular season, but they wanted the tournament title.”
North Texas is headed to the NCAA Tournament for the second time in the last four years and the fourth time in program history. The Mean Green plays No. 15 Texas Tech on Friday at 7 p.m. in Lubbock for the opening-round game.
