The University of St. Thomas Men's Soccer team is "driven beyond" for their 2023 season! Driven beyond means they continue to set new standards within the program and strive to set a national standard of who they are as UST Men's Soccer. Join us in this year's drive!

Last year, the team finished the season 16-2-3, the best in University history since joining the NCAA in 2019. They not only won the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Tournament for the second year in a row, but also earned an automatic qualifier to the NCAA National Tournament, where they made it to the Sweet 16 out of 405 Division III programs. 

Adding to the list of accomplishments, several of the players, as well as coaches, have been recognized for their talents:

  • As a sophomore, Daniel Castro is the leading goal scorer in University history
  • Hamilton Estrada was honored as SCAC Co-Defensive Player of the Year (2022)
  • Taty Aleman, Daniel Castro, and Hamilton Estrada were honored as All-Region players (2022)
  • Taty Aleman and Daniel Castro were honored as All-American players (2022)
  • UST coaching staff honored as SCAC Coaching Staff Of The Year for 2nd year in a row (2021 & 2022)
  • UST coaching staff honored as West Region Coaching Staff Of The Year (2022)

The Celts have seen a lot of excitement and have built the foundation for an even better 2023 season. And you can help play a part in their success! Through your support, we can continue advancing with access to new equipment, entry into national tournaments, better training equipment, and an overall improved student-athlete experience. Our goal is to become a nationally recognized program and your generosity can assist us in making that dream a reality. 


An unrestricted gift to UST Athletics or a restricted gift to a specific sport gains membership to the Champions Club, a group of UST fans, family and alumni who join in the shared vision of providing the best athletic experience for University of St. Thomas student-athletes. The Champions Club invites participation by anyone who wants to be a part of intercollegiate athletics at the University of St. Thomas.
