WWU women’s soccer ranked No.12 in NSCAA pre-season poll

The Western Viking women’s soccer team is ranked No. 12 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America Pre-season poll released this week. The Vikings are the defending Great Northwest Athletic Conference regular-season and tournament champions.

Last year the Vikings reached the NCAA Division II Far West Regional title game and finished 19-4-0, the win total being a school record.

Western returns 17 letter winners and nine starters from that team.
