Mitchell College Players to present Vietnam 101: The War on Campus, December 10, 11 and 12.

Ticket sales are now open!

Vietnam 101: The War on Campus is a documentary theater piece about one college community’s journey during the Vietnam War years. Based on recollections of over 100 students at Oberlin College in Ohio, the play recreates a time when people were asking the same questions that are being asked today about our government and our responsibilities. Combining monologues with Story Theater-type scenes, the play covers the years 1964 to 1970, from Lyndon Johnson’s promise not to expand the war (and early, well-behaved protests) to Kent State (when the entire campus shut down), and finally an epilogue from the present.

Marc Davis Named NECC Coach of the Year.

NECC release

MANSFIELD, Mass. – Mitchell College head coach Marc Davis was named New England Collegiate Conference Coach of the Year on Tuesday morning as the league announced its annual women’s soccer awards.

Davis is the program’s first coach to earn the conference’s top honor. In his third season at the helm, he led Mitchell to a 5-8-2 overall record and the most wins since the 2011 campaign.

Davis also helped Mitchell clinch a postseason berth for the first time since 2016. The Mariners, who finished tied for second in the league standings at 1-1-1, will be the third seed in the 2021 NECC Women’s Soccer Championship.

Prior to Davis’s arrival, Mitchell ranked last in the NECC in goals per game (0.33) and goal-against average (4.80) in 2018. This season the Mariners ranked second in both categories, averaging 1.60 goals per game during the regular season while sporting a 2.20 goals-against average.

Davis has also enjoyed success on the recruiting trail, adding nine freshmen to the roster this season. The group—which includes recruits from Texas, Florida, California, New Jersey, Maine and Connecticut—has made a big impact on the program.

Several other awards were handed out by the conference on Tuesday, all of which were determined by a vote of the league’s head coaches. Mitchell freshman Marissa Luna was one of four selections to the NECC Sportsmanship Team.

Mitchell will face second-seeded New England College in the semifinals of the NECC Championship on Wednesday, November 3 at 4:30 p.m.
