Lobos reach NCAA soccer Final Four

-A A +A


ALBUQUERQUE — There are words to describe Jerry Fishbein’s Final Four bound Lobos – elite, special, exceptional – but those are not really exclusive to his 2013 team.

The words also describe the University of New Mexico men’s soccer program, other Fishbein teams, and even apply to this special coach who once again has his Lobos knocking on the door to an NCAA national championship.

There is no denying that Fishbein’s 2013 Lobos deserve extra attention for what they have done.  A Final Four appearance in a tournament format is a door no other Lobo program has opened. 

The storied Lobo men’s basketball team has yet to crack open a Sweet 16 door.  Fishbein has done it three years in a row.

This is a special moment for New Mexico athletics. It is a special moment for any athletic program or team.

The NCAA lists 198 teams in its men’s soccer statistics.  There are only four left standing.

Fishbein has opened that Final Four door twice and in 2005 played in the NCAA National Championship game, losing to Maryland.  His Lobos are one of only three teams in the entire nation which have marched into the Sweet 16 in each of the past three seasons.
