CSU Women's Soccer Moves Up Two Spots in NSCAA Poll
Columbus – After a successful weekend to start the season, the Columbus State University women's soccer team moved up two spots in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Poll to No. 14 in the country.
The Lady Cougars (1-0-1) tied 0-0 against Southern Indiana to open the season on Friday and two days later notched their first win of the 2011 campaign defeating Tusculum 2-1 in Greeneville, TN during the Tusculum Kickoff Tournament.
Columbus State opened the season at No. 16 in the NSCAA Poll following a 19-2-1 record in 2010, the best single season mark in school history despite losing seven season starters and one key reserve to graduation.
The Lady Cougars are No. 2 in the southeast regional rankings and are the highest-ranked school in the Peach Belt Conference. The only other ranked conference member is the Lady Cougars first home opponent, No. 23 University of North Carolina-Pembroke.
The Lady Cougars return to their home pitch on Friday, September 9 to host the No. 23 Lady Braves in their Peach Belt Conference opener. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. at the Walden Soccer Complex.
