COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- The University of Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer team will continue its historic state to the 2012 campaign when it travels to Regis on Friday at 4:30 p.m.
The Mountain Lions are on a program best 6-0 overall start and 2-0 conference start to the season. The Mountain Lions are ranked No. 11 in theNSCAA national poll for the first time ever and also ranked second in the regional poll.
Regis is 3-2-1 overall and 1-0-1 in the RMAC and coming off as shutout of Colorado State-Pueblo on Sunday. The Rangers tied Metro State 2-2 last Friday in the conference opener.
