One day after winning the Junior College Division 1 soccer championship, Pima College returned home from Daytona Beach.

Fans, friends, and family greeted the team upon their arrival at the West Campus.

"I can't explain this feeling," said Hugo Kametani, who scored the game winning goal in Saturday's championship game over Barton College. "I'm so happy right now."

"I've been chasing a national championship for 30 years," said head coach David Cosgrove, a former Aztec player. "I lost in the finals as a player and it's great to get the monkey off my back."
