Jacks hoping to build on recent success in men’s soccer

Cal Poly Humboldt Athletics

Coming off its most impressive season in 15 years, the Cal Poly Humboldt men’s soccer team will be looking to build on that momentum when the new season gets under way next week.

The Jacks finished 10-5-2 a year ago, recording the program’s most wins since finishing 11-6-3 in 2006.

And longtime head coach Fred Jungemann will be optimistic of another big year with nine starters returning this fall, including 2021 all-conference selections Dylan Tovani, Adrian Gallardo, Christian Gonzalez, Devin Hauenstein and Motoki Sato.

Tovani and Gallardo also earned All-Region honors after the 2021 season.

The Jacks kick off the new season on Thursday of next week when they host Northwest Nazarene at College Creek Field at 3 p.m. in what will be an important preseason regional matchup. 

Two days later, the Jacks face another regional opponent, Holy Names, at 11:30 a.m.

The Jacks open the California Collegiate Athletic Association in late September with eyes on reaching the conference postseason tournament, which kicks off on Oct. 30.

The top six teams in conference will all qualify for the CCAA tournament, with the winner receiving the conference’s automatic berth to the NCAA Division II Championships.
