The Carl Sandburg College men’s soccer team, a National Tournament qualifier in 2021, is off to a good start this season at 3-2-1. The Chargers remained in the NJCAA Division II rankings for the fourth straight week, coming in at No. 18 in the most recent poll released Monday. Sandburg dropped down two spots this week, following a 3-3 draw Sept. 14 at home against South Suburban. The Chargers have appeared in 17 of the last 18 NJCAA polls, dating back to the 2021 spring season. Head Coach for the Chargers, Victor Dantas, says the team is constantly growing and improving.
The Chargers have found a lot of success from their international players. Two key international players for the Chargers are, Ben Hilton from England and Jean Forestal from Haiti. Both players shared their experience in the area recently on the WRAM morning show.
Sandburg will look to get back in the win column as it takes on the undefeated Waubonsee Chiefs on Thursday. You can hear the full interview with players Ben Hilton and Jean Forestal, as well as head coach Victor Dantas by clicking HERE
