Lady Cougars Move to Second in National Poll


After a 2-0 start to the season, the Columbus State University women’s soccer team jumped two spots in the United Soccer Coaches association poll to the second position.

Grand Valley State still holds the number one ranking after winning a pair of matches over the opening weekend. CSU did, however, leapfrog over third-ranked UC San Diego this week while Central Missouri entered the top-five at the fourth position. Bloomsburg remains fifth for the second consecutive week.

It is the highest ranking for Columbus State since Sept. 13, 2016 when the Lady Cougars were the top-ranked team in the country.

The Lady Cougars are coming off an impressive opening weekend in which they scored 12 goals in two matches. CSU tallied a ranked victory on Monday knocking off then ranked 20th Barry 8-2.

Columbus State will host the annual CSU Collegiate Invitational at the Walden Soccer Complex on Friday, Sept. 13 and Sunday, Sept. 15. CSU will take on Tampa on Friday at 7:30 p.m. before closing out the invitational with a match against West Alabama on Sunday at 3 p.m.
