UNCG Athletics inducted the men’s soccer National Championship teams from 1985, 1986 and 1987 into the Athletics Hall of Fame in an Oct. 4 ceremony. The Spartans became the first program in NCAA Division III men’s soccer history to win three straight national championships.
Several dozen players from this era of UNCG’s men’s soccer history were on hand to take in the applause and relive the memories. Their coach, Michael Parker, said, “It’s been 30 years since I’ve seen some of these guys. It’s a very emotional moment for me.”
