COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado - Former MCC women's soccer coach Tracey Britton and standout player Melissa Hornfeck were among eight people announced as inductees into the NJCAA Women's Soccer Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
Britton and Hornfeck teamed to deliver back-to-back NJCAA national championships to Monroe in 2004 and 2005. The Tribunes had 43 wins, two losses, and one tie over that span.

Britton patrolled the MCC sidelines for 15 seasons, the last nine of which came as Tribune head coach. Monroe was a perennial power under Britton. She also led the 2001 squad to a national championship, and her teams had three runner-up finishes as well.
Britton finished her career at Monroe with an astonishing 171-12-9 record and she coached more than 20 All-Americans. She currently works in the Student Services office at MCC's Downtown Campus.
Hornfeck was one of the most dominant players to compete at Monroe. The Odenton, Md., native was a two-time Region III Player of the Year and first team All-American. She registered 57 goals and 22 assists over her two seasons, despite missing significant time during her sophomore campaign due to an injury.
Hornfeck was named national tournament MVP in both 2004 and 2005, and she became the first female to earn back-to-back NSCAA National Player of the Year honors. After Monroe, Hornfeck moved on to the University of Maryland.
