Coming off a CCIW regular season championship and an NCAA tournament appearance in 2012, Coach Scott Mejia's Augustana women's soccer team has been tabbed for a second-place conference finish this year in a poll of the league's coaches.
Augustana went 16-5 and won the CCIW in women's soccer in 2012. A total of 21 letterwinners return for veteran head coach Scott Mejia.
One year ago Augustana captured the 2012 College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin women's soccer title with an undefeated 7-0 record. The Vikings of veteran head coach Scott Mejia finished the year with a 16-5 overall record and advanced to the NCAA Division III national tournament for the fifth time in the last eight seasons.
Augustana, behind first team All-American and CCIW Player of the Year Taylor Moesle, finished the 2012 season with a 16-5-0 overall record. The Vikings, with four freshmen in the lineup for most of the year, captured the program's second conference title with a perfect 7-0 league ledger and qualified for the NCAA tournament for the fifth time in the last eight seasons.
After a College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin championship, Augustana announced its award winners for the 2012 women's soccer season. Senior Taylor Moesle, junior Maggie Hoscheit, junior Allison Frickman and freshman Kelly Farell pulled down the major awards.
