BHC soccer teams make history with playoff appearances

Soccer LogoThe Black Hawk College men’s and women’s soccer teams are making history this week with BOTH teams making their first-ever playoff appearances.

“This has been a breakout year for both teams, and I am excited that both programs get to experience a post-season run,” said Arnie Chavera, BHC athletic director.

The Braves began competing in August 2021. This fall, both teams broke their own records for most wins in a season.

“I am quite proud of Coach Ochoa, Coach Maus and our student-athletes,” Chavera said. “Both teams are talented and have some grit in them.”
