The Georgia soccer team moved up to four spots to No. 16 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll. The NSCAA poll is nationally recognized as the official ranking system of NCAA soccer. This ranking is special as it is the highest in the tenure of head coach Steve Holeman. Also, the No. 16 ranking is the highest since the team ranked No. 15 in 2009.
The Bulldogs (9-2-1, 4-1-1 SEC) are coming off two wins against Tennessee and Mississippi State this past weekend. The team’s Ratings Percentage Index (RPI) now sits at No. 20 in the country. The RPI measures wins and losses as well as strength of schedule for entry into the 64-team NCAA tournament. The Bulldogs are in good shape as they are second in the Southeastern Conference.
The team returns to action next weekend, Oct. 17-19, against Missouri and LSU in Athens.
