What does it mean to win 250 games? "250 wins means I have had a lot of talent come through MJC. It has been an exciting journey," said Aristotelous.

The MJC Women's Soccer team celebrated their coach's win after defeating Skyline College 3-0. The team is now 3-0-0 on the season. In addition to the on-field success, the team is succeeding in the classroom as well, with average team grade point average of 3.49.

"What I love about soccer is how it has evolved over the years. At first, I loved the competition, and I loved being a part of a competitive/family environment all striving to win a title. I still love to compete, but what I love more now is watching all these young women push forward with their schooling and accomplishing their personal goals (career, family, and anything else they desire). As the head of this program, my number one responsibility is to provide my athletes the best opportunity possible to complete their academic goals," said Aristotelous.
