Women's Soccer To Host Alumni Weekend

MIAMI SHORES, Fla.—The Barry women’s soccer team won three NCAA Division II national championships in five years from 1989-93 and, this weekend, they welcome back those title squads for a reunion weekend at Buccaneer Field.

Members of the three championship teams will reunite in Miami Shores, for some them for the first time since their playing days. Many activities are planned, including a campus tour, receptions and parties as well as a ceremony honoring the teams at the halftime of the women’s game against Rollins on Saturday, Oct. 6.

Barry’s three national championships are the second-most, behind Franklin Pierce’s five, in Division II history and Barry has also had 38 All-Americans, from Annie Perez in 1988 to Emma Karp in 2010, which ranks second behind the Ravens as well.

The Bucs have reached the site of the finals nine times, including six straight years from 1988-93. They also hosted the finals six times, the most of any venue (1988, 1989, 1990, 1993, 1999, 2000). In 1999 and 2000, they became the first school and first site to host both the men’s and women’s finals simultaneously.

The Bucs have compiled an overall record of 344-122-26 (.726) entering this season.
