    Although the college did not join an intercollegiate conference until 2004, a CIA soccer team did compete against other area colleges as far back as the mid-1970s. Soccer was one of the flagship programs when the CIA joined the HVIAC, with Serge Nalywayko serving as the original coach.

    Team Highlights:

    • 2006: Finished in second place during the season but won the conference tournament to finish as overall champion.
    • 2007: Captured both the regular season and championship tournament titles, finishing with an impressive 7-0-1 record.
    • 2008: Finished the regular season in first place before losing a hard-fought game 1-0 in the conference final.
    • 2009: Won the regular season conference championship for the third year in a row before losing a heartbreaker in the conference semifinals.
    • 2011: After a third-place finish, made it to the conference finals before losing on penalty kicks.
    • 2014: Earned a 9-4-1 overall record and 5-2 conference mark—good for a regular season conference championship—before falling 1-0 in the semifinal round of the tournament. Sophomore Dan Landon was named Conference Player of the Year and Chris Lyn was Coach of the Year.
