NSCAA Ranks UVa Women's Soccer 8th and Men's Soccer 25th

Posted: Updated:

The UVa men's and women's soccer team are about a week away season openers and today their preseason rankings were released.

According to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, or NSCAA, the men's soccer team has been ranked 25th while the women moved up two spots this year to number eight. 

The men's team made it to the second round of the NCAA tournament last year. Meanwhile, The Cavalier women are the reigning ACC champions. 

UVa Women's head soccer coach, Steve Swanson, keyed us in on how the team's looking this season. Swanson said, "we know there's a lot of challenges ahead too. We've got a very difficult schedule. We're gonna hit our bumps along the way, we've known that. I think this is a very together team, it's a very talented team, and hopefully we can continue to build on the start we've had here. It's been a really good start for us."
