For the first time this season, the Georgia soccer team has entered the Soccer America poll at No. 25 in the country.
Gaining the national ranking caps off a huge weekend for Georgia (4-1-1, 0-0-1 Southeastern Conference).
Sophomore midfielder Gabby Seiler set a new record for most consecutive games with a score (five) in last Friday’s 4-0 win over Houston, while three other players scored their first career goals. The Bulldogs’ 1-0 defeat of No. 17 UCF was their biggest victory since knocking off then-No. 17 South Carolina a year ago.
Louise Hogrell, Georgia’s freshman goalkeeper, was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week on Monday after securing those two shutouts.
Next up for the Bulldogs is a home matchup against Mercer at 7 p.m. Friday night. They will then travel to Furman for a 6 p.m. game Sunday in Greenville, South Carolina.
