Vikings remain 15th in soccer poll

Senior Morgan Olsen scored her second goal of the season against Dubuque last week, helping Augustana remain undefeated and ranked 15th in the NSCAA/Continental Tire Division III women's soccer poll.

KANSAS CITY, Kan. - The Augustana women's soccer team won its only game last week, 3-0 at Dubuque to improve to 5-0-0 this season, and remains at number 15 in this week's NSCAA/Continental Tire poll. Freshman Somer Druszkowski (Lincoln-Way Central HS, Manhattan, Ill.), sophomore Kimberly Grimmer (Downers Grove South HS, Woodridge, Ill.) and senior Morgan Olsen (Downers Grove North HS, Woodridge, Ill.) provided the scoring in the win over the Spartans.
