Western Nebraska Community College – Women’s Soccer College Spotlight

Although it is rarely covered by the traditional media giants of the state, Nebraska is filled with exciting and competitive collegiate soccer programs. In fact, Nebraska contains a grand total of THIRTY programs for men and women. Those thirty programs compete across a wide variety of collegiate levels including Division I, Division II, Division III, NAIA, and junior college.

Nebraska Soccer Talk is here to examine, cover, and promote all of these teams. This task has been made a bit more challenging by the circumstances created by COVID-19. Depending on the playing level, conference, and school, the season outlook changes drastically. Roster information can also be in flux, depending on the school. Despite these challenges, our staff attempted to put together the best program summaries possible. To our knowledge, we are the only outlet providing such coverage to our state’s college programs.

Just like Nebraska Soccer Talk, this column will grow and become more in depth as the years pass. In the future, we hope to provide sideline coverage of games, facility features, coach and player interviews. We look forward to the journey ahead. Thank you for being a part of our community. The sport of soccer is growing in Nebraska, and we intend to see it thrive.

NEST Analysis – A monumental turnaround has taken place at WNCC. A previously wounded program, the Lady Cougars posted an outstanding 13-4 record in 2019. With very few collegiate soccer programs located in the Western Nebraska region, every opportunity to showcase the game matters. The success of this team is crucial to growing the game throughout the state. No matter where the game is played, talent is present and deserves to be given recognition. Coach Todd Rasnic pulls double duty as he is in charge of both the men’s and women’s program at WNCC. Despite this uncommon arrangement, both programs appear to be on the right trajectory.
