VHSC Sets Record for Largest Registration Ever!

Former Steamer is ACC Champion and Advances to College Cup Semi-Final!
Syracuse men's soccer captured its first ACC Tournament Championship since 2015 with a dominant 2-0 victory over Clemson at WakeMed Soccer Park. The Orange bring home the second ACC Championship under head coach Ian McIntyre.
Since their ACC Tournament Championship, the Syracuse Orangemen have beaten Penn, Cornell, and Vermont to advance to the NCAA College Cup Semi-Final match versus Creighton on December 9!
No. 3 seed Syracuse men's soccer will take on Creighton at 6 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 9, in the 2022 NCAA College Cup Semifinal. The Orange and Bluejays meet on the soccer pitch for the first time at WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary, N.C., with a spot in the National Championship on the line. The match will be live on ESPNU. No. 13 seed Indiana faceoffs against Pittsburgh in the other semifinal showdown at the College Cup.
Syracuse looks to make history against Creighton. A win would secure the Orange's first-ever national championship appearance and the 18th win of the season, which would break the program's single-season win record.
Good luck to Tony and his Syracuse teammates in pursuing the National Title!
