TJC football heads to nationals
The Apache ladies end up undefeated in conference.
TYLER, Texas – Tyler Junior College once again maintains its program power as three different teams are currently punching their tickets to the national championships. Men’s and women’s soccer teams, and TJC volleyball.
One of the most dominant being the TJC women’s football team.
Ranked number one in the country, the Apache ladies finished the regular season undefeated. With 21 straight wins, this season ended with a South District Championship victory on Sunday against Hill College.
Since the program’s inception in 2008, the Apaches have won five national titles under head coach Corey Rose, who says winning is part of the culture.
“Our culture is just hard work and we talked about taking it one day at a time,” Rose said. “It’s hard when people bring up all the past and the accolades, but, you know, it’s here, they know it. But we just don’t have to talk about it regularly. The success we’ve had. , you know, I don’t have to wear my rings around the word national champions. “
With any winning schedule, it gets a lot of attention and Rose thinks her team is ready due to the preparation at the moment.
“Every game that we play, you know, we get the best of the team, you know, they know, if they get a beat, Tyler Junior College, it’s like winning a national championship. You know, it comes. of the way we train them and the way we push them, and the discipline that we expect. And that just uses their fire to want to do what others before them have done. “
The Apache ladies are heading to Daytona, Fla. Where they will try to win back-to-back national championships… The men’s team won the Southern Gulf District final on Saturday and secured their ticket to the national tournament next week in Tyler .
