MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The West Virginia University women’s soccer team moved down one spot to No. 10 in today’s Soccer America Top 25 Poll.
The Mountaineers (3-1-2) continue to hold the highest rank of any Big 12 Conference school. WVU dropped one spot following a split decision at last weekend’s Duke Nike Classic, as the team tied No. 12 Duke, 1-1, in double-overtime, on Sept. 6, and lost 4-2 to No. 1 North Carolina on Sept. 8.
The Tar Heels (6-0) remain No. 1, while Virginia (6-0) and Stanford each move up two spots to No. 2 and No. 3, respectively. Wake Forest (5-0) and BYU (4-0) also moved up two spots and rank No. 4 and No. 5, respectively, this week.
The Mountaineers maintain their No. 19 ranking in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/Continental Tire Poll for the second straight week. The ranking’s top three mirror the Soccer America Poll, while Florida State (5-0-1) is No. 4 and UCLA (5-1) is No. 5. Baylor is the highest-ranked Big 12 team in this poll and sits at No. 10.
The Mountaineers return to Morgantown this weekend and open a two-week homestand at Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium on Friday, Sept. 13, against Eastern Kentucky at 5:30 p.m. The team will return to the pitch on Sunday and face Kentucky at 1 p.m. Sunday’s match is a “Dollar Day,” and all tickets, hot dogs, popcorn and Coca-Colas are available for one dollar each.
