Cowgirls Picked Eighth In National Preseason Poll

Cowgirls Picked Eighth In National Preseason Poll
KANSAS CITY – Hardin-Simmons' women's soccer team is ranked eighth in the United Soccer Coaches (formerly NSCAA) preseason Division III poll.

The Cowgirls are coming off a 20-1-2 season that saw them allow just three goals on the entire season. HSU eventually was eliminated by NCAA champion Washington (Mo.) in the Sweet Sixteen on penalty kicks.

HSU returns all 11 starters that started in the postseason a year ago.

Washington was picked No. 1 in the poll followed by Messiah, University of Chicago, William Smith College, Trinity, Brandeis and Williams. HSU, Thomas More and Pomona-Pitzer round out the top 10.

The Cowgirls open the season on Sept. 1 when it plays Hendrix College in Tyler.
