Dozens Tryout For Inaugural TJC Women's Soccer Team

Tyler Junior College was breaking some new ground today, as more than twenty local soccer players came for the open tryouts for next year's first ever Apache Ladies soccer team.

New coach Corey Rose was in town for his first week on the job. The Apaches add women's soccer next season, and the recruits were looking forward to being the first to take the field.

"It would be a great honor," Henderson's Whitleigh Sharp said, "to be able to look back and I could say I was on the first TJC soccer team."

"The ability to come in and start a program is something that not many people get," TJC coach Corey Rose said. "To part my mark on the program is something I was very excited about."
