While the Bobcats will be three states away from the Syracuse campus, they’ll be just six miles from the Virginia Beach campus location, offering a little bit of a home field feel to this year’s championships.

Nick Dimitrievski and Alex Grigorita seem to have found one way to stay ahead in the ever competitive United States Collegiate Athletic Association and that is through a strong presence in international recruiting. Both head coaches recruit heavily in the greater Syracuse and New York regions bu...

    The Bryant & Stratton College Bobcats fell short of their National Championship aspirations in a dramatic penalty kick defeat to the University of Maine-Fort Kent. Despite playing much of the first half with a man advantage after a UMFK red card, the Bobcats couldn’t find the back of the net. BSC would eventually fall victim to a red card of their own and the sides would finish regulation and extra time with 10 players each. As the golden goal overtimes played out just as regulation ...

Amanda Belsito’s goal in the 33rd minute would be all BSC would need as she slotted home a pass from Nicolette Weir. Weir would be busy in the second half as well, ...
