WE'RE #1

For the 2nd time in the last 5 years the Fort Lewis Men's soccer team is the NCAA Division II National Champion. That's NATIONAL CHAMPION!!! Forget the Broncos. Forget the Nuggets. Forget the Rockies and Avs. These guys belong to us. It was wonderful to see the community support the team. The championship game was televised and carried in the restaurants and local bars. Locals cheered and celebrated with a parade down Main Aveunue when the team arrived back from Florida. This "feel good" happening is only the latest example of what makes our small corner of Colorado a special place.

"National Champions" - now that's cool!
