North Point grad captures first-team honors
By AJ Mason
It has been nearly two months since the College of Southern Maryland women’s soccer team completed a historic season with the most wins in program history with 17 and claimed its first-ever Region XX and District L titles, while earning a berth to the NJCAA Division I national tournament in Melbourne, Fla.
Freshman defender Briana Williams, a 2013 North Point High School graduate, will never forget what the program delivered in the 2013 season and reflects on the special moments in her first season of college soccer under CSM head women’s soccer coach Adam Sanchez.
“Basically looking back on the season and all we have accomplished was special,” Williams said. “Knowing that last year’s team was just shy of making it to the nationals was phenomenal. I knew I had to do my part.”

Houston's goal lifts Hawks to double-OT victory; national tournament berth
By: AJ Mason
Since falling to the Cape Fear Community College Sea Devils from North Carolina on Sept. 1, the College of Southern Maryland women’s soccer team have been on a mission.
The Hawks won 13 straight games since the 2-1 defeat, including capturing a Maryland Junior College conference championship and a Region XX championship.
The stage was set on Saturday afternoon as CSM got its rematch with Cape Fear in the NJCAA Division I District L championship on its home field in La Plata.
The evenly matched contest was knotted at 1 after regulation and the first sudden-death overtime period.
Then when it looked as if the game would be decided by penalty kicks, CSM sophomore goalkeeper Jasmine Biggs punted the ball far down the field late in the second overtime session.
Sophomore forward Alysse Houston, a St. Mary’s Ryken graduate, gathered the ball off the first touch and nailed a shot from across her body into the left corner of the net with 56.1 seconds left, catapulting the Hawks to the 2-1 double overtime victory.
Houston’s teammates rushed the field in celebration, and the Hawks completed their mission of winning their first-ever... click here for more
Hawks prepare for first-ever district championship, ready for rematch with Cape Fear
By: AJ Mason
When you look at the College of Southern Maryland women’s soccer schedule, there are 16 wins and one loss.
That lone loss came at the hands of North Carolina’s Cape Fear Community College on Sept. 1, 2-1.
Since then, the Hawks have been on a 13-game win streak, shut out nine opponents, claimed its second straight Maryland JUCO conference crown and recently captured its first-ever Region XX tournament title in program history with a 2-1 victory over Harford Community College in Bel Air.
The next stop for the Hawks will be on Saturday when they host the District L championship at noon Saturday on its La Plata campus, as they will clash with Region X champion Cape Fear in a rematch.
Both teams are much different now from earlier in the season, with Southern Maryland yielding only four goals total during the streak, while Cape Fear have given up four all season.
The Hawks are currently ranked eighth nationally in the NJCAA Division I poll and 10th in the NSCAA Division I coaches poll, while Cape Fear (17-1) is ranked 12th in the NSCAA coaches poll.“We’ve became a better team since... click here for more
