No. 4 Men’s soccer achieves all-time high ranking
The Washington University men’s soccer team’s on-field success was recognized off of it when the National Soccer Coaches Association of America released its third poll of the season, ranking the Bears as the fourth-best team in the country.
The No. 4 ranking is the highest in team history in the NSCAA poll. The previous high ranking was No. 5 in September of the 1996 season.
Wash. U., ranked sixth last week, is coming off a weekend in which they outscored opponents Birmingham Southern College and Greenville College 8-1. Senior Dylan Roman earned University Athletic Association athlete of the week honors after scoring three goals and extending his goal-scoring streak to five consecutive games.
St. Lawrence University jumped from No. 4 to No. 1 in the poll, and Messiah College and Christopher Newport University earned second and third ranks, respectively.
The Bears host Westminster College at 7 p.m. at Francis Field on Wednesday before traveling to River Forest, Ill. to face No. 15 Dominican College.
