The Rangers return 19 players from last season and are welcoming 31 new freshman and five first year players. Head Football Coach Ricky Woods, who is beginning his fifth season with the Rangers commented on the upcoming season. "We have a lot of experience on defense, and offensively, we have guys back who make a big difference. We also have some good, young freshmen who will have to produce for us real quick, and we're optimistic that we'll have a good season," Woods said. The Rangers are ranked at No. 11 to start the season in the NJCAA Top 20 Poll and is one of four schools from the MACJC in the poll.
Peter Jarjoura, head coach of the men's and women's soccer team is beginning his 11th season.
Last year's women's team finished third place in the MACJC North Division and the men finished fourth in the north.
The Lady Rangers welcome 17 newcomers overall, including two out-of-state players. "I really feel that we will compete well in our division this year and make a serious run at a playoff appearance," Jarjoura said.
He expects the newcomers, as well as the handful of returning players, to guide both teams into the post season. "I expect our returning players to lead the way for our newcomers," Jajoura said.
