      Lady Cavs take aim at a national championship


      The Darton women's soccer team is back in the NJCAA Division 1 Soccer Championship Tournament.

      Darton is part of a three team pool. The winner is decided on a points system after the teams play each other. The Lady Cavaliers will play Owens Community College on Monday and Butler Community College on Wednesday.

      After winning the region, head coach Ken Veilands turned to film study to prepare for nationals. He worked with his team on touches, possessions, and decision-making.

      Veilands knows Darton has the talent to make a run.

      "We don't need to drag games out. If we're the better team, then we need to play and put them away early," Veilands said.

      The Lady Cavs finished as the national runner-up in 2005, 2008, and 2011.
