The Texas A&M University-Texarkana women’s soccer team has qualified for the Association of Independent Institutions Conference Tournament to be held on the campus of Georgia Gwinnett College in Lawrenceville, Georgia, beginning Wednesday, Nov. 11, at 4 p.m.
The A&M-Texarkana Eagles are seeded fifth out of six teams in the tournament and will play Fisher College of Boston, Massachusetts, which has a 12-4 record entering the tournament.
The winner of Wednesday’s match will play on Thur., Nov. 12, with the championship game set for Sat., Nov. 14, at 4 p.m. On Tuesday, all participating teams will attend a banquet in their honor.
“This is the first year for A&M-Texarkana programs to be eligible for postseason play, so it is quite an accomplishment for A&M-Texarkana student-athletes and Coach Don Koontz,” said Michael Galvan, director of athletics. “I am extremely proud of our student-athletes and what they have done up to this point; however, I want this to be expected each and every year along with the opportunity to become Academic All-Americans, which would be the icing on the cake. It is a great day to be an Eagle.”
Games will be live streamed via Stretch Internet provided by Georgia Gwinnett College at a minimal cost. More details will follow on the team’s departure time and links to the live-streamed matches.

The purpose of the Association of Independent Institutions is to promote the education, development and welfare of student-athletes through their various experiences and participation in National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics programs.
