Cupello to be honored by Rochester Lancers

MCC men's soccer coach Nelson Cupello will be inducted into the Rochester Lancers Wall of Fame in a ceremony during the Lancer game against Chicago Soul FC on Wednesday, Nov. 21. The game starts at 7 p.m. at the Blue Cross Arena at the War Memorial.

Cupello, who just completed his 23rd season as coach of the Tribunes, played for the Lancers from 1975-1980. He also played professionally for the Rochester Flash from '81-'83. He starred on the pitch for MCC and was inducted into the NJCAA Soccer Hall of Fame in 2002.

Cupello earned his 300th victory at Monroe during the 2012 campaign and led the team to an 18-1-1 record and a third-place finish at the NJCAA Division I national tournament.
