UCCS Ranked Sixth in First NSCAA Regional Rankings
KANSAS CITY, Kan. - Coming off of a 2-0 start, the University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer team stands sixth in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America's South Central region poll. They were ranked in all but two weeks regionally last year.
The Mountain Lions beat Fort Hays State and West Texas A&M over the weekend to get their two wins. The Mountain Lions shut out Fort Hays State 1-0 on Friday night and followed up with a 4-1 win on Sunday afternoon against West Texas A&M, with Hannah Rather and Hannah Levett each scoring two goals and Levett adding an assist as well.
This is the second straight year that UCCS has started 2-0 and third time in program history that the Mountain Lions have started 2-0.
The Mountain Lions are one of five RMAC schools listed in the regional poll. Fort Lewis leads the poll, with Regis in fourth and Metro State in fifth ahead of UCCS. Colorado Mesa rounds out the RMAC teams in eighth.
The Mountain Lions look to continue that success when they face Saint Martin's at 7:30 pm at Mountain Lions Stadium.
