The men’s soccer program at Tompkins Cortland Community College first competed as a varsity team in 1995.

The first member of the 2019 recruiting class is Nathan Stuart from G. Ray Bodley High School (Fulton, N.Y.)
The longest-tenured coach in the history of Tompkins Cortland Community College athletics is stepping down. Andy Davis has decided to leave the men’s soccer program he has led for the last 14 seasons in order to spend more time with family and to pursue other opportunities. A search for his successor will begin immediately.
