INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - The University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer team (13-4-2) moved one spot from fourth to fifth in the latest NCAA South Central Regional Ranking released on Wednesday. The ranking provides insight into the postseason selections to be made on Monday by the NCAA Division II Women's Soccer Committee.

UCCS finished in a tie for third in the RMAC standings and hosted the first home playoff game in program history on Wednesday night. The Mountain Lions were the fourth seed in the conference tournament and qualified for the tournament for the third time in the five-year history of the program.

Six teams will advance to the regional tournament with the three conferences - RMAC, Lone Star Conference and Heartland Conference - each receiving an automatic bid.
