Tyler — The defending national champions have come home.
The Tyler Junior College men's soccer team will host the national soccer tournament.
TJC will play at 5:30 Monday and 5:30 Wednesday.
The Apaches have won three of the last four national titles.
Tyler hosted this event in 2010.
Back then, TJC won it all.
"The last time we played it here we were successful," said TJC coach Steve Clements. "I felt like being in our home environment was a positive."
"It's a good level of play," Clements continued. "There will be a ton of coaches out here. It's good to watch."
The tournament will be played at the Tyler Junior College campus.
Twelve teams from nine states will compete in the Rose City for the national championship.
