Hudson Valley Nationally Ranked, Recognized
Hudson Valley Community College again ranks as one of the largest and most productive American two-year colleges, according to a survey released recently by Community College Week, a bi-weekly higher education newspaper.

From Troy to Space . and Back
The college recently hosted a satellite teleconference between Dr. John Phillips, the American astronaut aboard the International Space Station, and his family back here on Earth.

Hudson Valley was chosen because of the sophisticated technological capabilities available through the college's Viking Video Technologies and because the Phillips were visiting family in the area. Click here to read and/or view Capital News 9's coverage of the teleconference.

Fall Sports Preview
There is a lot of excitement surrounding Hudson Valley's athletic teams as they prepare for the Fall 2005 season. The football team, under new head coach Oji Fagan, is looking for its third consecutive conference championship. The Vikings return 11 starters from a year ago and are ranked No. 19 in the NJCAA preseason poll.

Hudson Valley's men's and women's soccer teams also will be guided by first-time head coaches this season. Jay Pokines will lead the women's soccer team, which will seek its third consecutive regional tournament birth. The men's soccer team will look to return to the regional tournament for the fifth time in six years under coach Matt Jones.

Hudson Valley's volleyball team and tennis team are hoping to build on 2004, which was the best year of the decade so far for both teams. Tennis finished third at the Region III tournament a year ago and volleyball qualified for the regional tournament for the first time since 1996.
