UH-Hilo Women’s Soccer Debuts on United Soccer Coaches Top 25 Poll at No. 17
Undefeated so far this season, the University of Hawai‘i at Hilo women’s soccer team made its first appearance on a weekly poll by a national organization of soccer coaches.
The Vulcans made their debut on Tuesday’s United Soccer Coaches NCAA Division II Week 2 top 25 poll at No. 17.
Dallas Baptist University (4-0) was voted at No. 1 on the top 25 weekly Division II poll.
UH-Hilo previously received votes in the West Region top 10 with a No. 7 rank but had not earned any points in the preseason or Week 1 top 25 polls. In this week’s West Region rankings, the Vulcans shot up to No. 2 right behind Pacific West Conference-mate Point Loma Nazarene (3-0-1). The Sea Lions are No. 7 in the top 25.
Other PacWest schools in the West Region rankings are Azusa Pacific (No. 5) and Concordia Irvine (No. 6).
The Vulcans are off to a 4-0 start in 2022, with regional road wins against Cal State East Bay, San Francisco State and Stanislaus State of the California Collegiate Athletic Association and Regis of the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference.
The Vulcans will be in action this Saturday against Hawai‘i Pacific at home in a non-conference tilt.
