2010 Season - Vikings move up to 10th in women's soccer

Augustana remains unbeaten in women's soccer with a 7-0-2 record and has moved up to 10th in the latest NCAA Division III national poll.

A 1-0 victory over previously undefeated and nationally ranked Loras last week helped Augustana move up one notch in the NCAA Division III national poll in women’s soccer. The Vikings, now 7-0-2 overall after defeating Dubuque last night (Sep. 29) by a score of 2-1, have moved to 10 th.

Augustana now has a win over 13 th ranked Loras and a 0-0 tie against 12 th rated Calvin back on September 18.

The Vikings went through the first eight games of the 2010 season without allowing a goal. That streak was snapped last night in the win over Dubuque.

Augustana, the defending College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin champion, will open the conference schedule on Saturday, October 2 with a 1:00 p.m. home match against Carthage at Ericson Field.
