Season Preview: Tri-C Soccer Looks to Net Postseason Berth


Triceratops return top offensive and defensive players from last year’s team


Expectations for the upcoming season? Longtime Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) soccer coach Devan Anderson let the question marinate for a moment before offering a simple reply to put opponents on notice.


“All I can say,” he said, “is that we plan on making some noise.”


The Triceratops return much of the roster from last year’s freshman-filled team, which posted a 5-7-3 record. The lineup is loaded with electric playmakers and lockdown defenders eager to claim a postseason invitation.


On the offensive side, the team returns last season’s top scorer, Adrian Alexander, who found the back of the net 10 times. The Jamaican native and Cleveland Metropolitan School District graduate also added four assists.


He’ll be joined on the attack by Calvin Brown (Aurora), Armani Reid (Jamaica) and Timothy Wallace (Seven Hills), among others.


Lockdown defender Warren Simpson — another international student from Jamaica — helps protect the Tri-C goal. Simpson earned First Team All-Region XII honors following the 2018 season.


The lightning-quick Joshua Straw of Parma joins Simpson as an anchor on the back line.


Freshman Quincy Scott will handle goal-keeping duties following a stellar senior season at Bedford High School, where he allowed only one goal in 545 minutes while serving as the last line of defense.


The team opens the season Sept. 7 at Ashland University. Tri-C’s first home game at Western Campus in Parma takes place Sept. 9. For a full schedule, visit www.tri-c.edu/athletics.



Off and Running: Tri-C Cross Country Wins Season-Opening Meet

Hope Brown paces the Triceratops with a first-place finish at Daniel Walker Invitational


Talk about a fast start.


The Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) cross country team opened the 2019 season with a victory at the Buffalo State Daniel Walker Invitational. The four-team meet took place Aug. 31 at Beaver Island State Park in New York.


Sophomore Hope Brown of Middleburg Heights finished first among all runners at the invitational with a time of 20:43 on the rolling 5,000-meter course.


Freshman Claudia Mendek (North Royalton) finished close behind to grab third place. She was followed by sophomore Hannah Heath of Black River (fifth) and freshmen Hailey Vitolo of Perry (seventh); Juliet Rayer of North Royalton (ninth) and Kristen van’t Veer of Ashtabula (10th).


Overall, nine of the first 15 runners to cross the finish line wore Tri-C teal.


The Triceratops cross country team has qualified for nationals the past 18 years while building a reputation as one of the nation’s strongest programs. The team finished 29th in the country last year.


Tri-C travels to Akron’s Firestone Park next weekend to compete in the University of Akron’s Tommy Evans Invitational. For more information on the team, visit www.tri-c.edu/athletics.
