Mountain Lions Ranked 9th in NCAA South Central Regional Poll

By Kelsey Helgeson published October 24, 2013

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind.- The University of  Colorado Colorado Springs women's soccer team is ranked ninth in the first National Collegiate Athletic Association South Central Regional poll of the year.

The NCAA Division II women's soccer field is composed of eight regions across the nation. The NCAA releases a weekly ranking of the top ten schools in each region. After conference play, the top six ranked programs from each region will receive a bid to their respective regional tournament.

Five of the ten ranked teams in the South Central Regional compete in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference. The top two programs are unbeaten Colorado Mines (13-0-1) and Metro State (11-0-3), followed by third ranked Fort Lewis (11-3-0).

With four games left to play in the regular season, UCCS (8-4-0, 7-4-0 RMAC) still has a chance to break into the top six regional slots. If the Mountain Lions receive a bid to the regional tournament, it would be the first in program history.

The Mountain Lions return to the pitch this weekend as they host a pair of crucial games against Adams State (5-5-4, 2-4-4 RMAC) and Fort Lewis (11-3, 7-3 RMAC).
