COLUMBIA — The Columbia Christian Fellowship School's boys soccer team is traveling to Tennessee for the national tournament after winning the Missouri State Christian Schools Athletic Association state championship last weekend in Joplin.

The state title gave the Knights* a 19-0 record this season. The team has won the state tournament twice before, but has never gone undefeated.

The Knights* kick off the 24-team National Association of Christian Athletes tournament Wednesday morning in Dayton, Tenn. They start pool play against a team from New York.

Christian Fellowship seniors Chris McCoy, Joey Berry and Jered Sharp – son of Missouri athletic trainer Rex Sharp — were named first-team All-State after the tournament. Many players on the team have been competing together at the school since seventh grade, so expectations were high going into the season.
