PHILADELPHIA--The Penn men's soccer team earned regional and national recognition with a 10th-place ranking in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)Northeast region poll and receiving votes in the NSCAA and CollegeSoccerNews.com polls.
"It is always nice to be recognized in the national polls," said Head Coach Rudy Fuller. "Fortunately, we have a team of guys with a lot of experience and who understand polls don't win games. It is a reward of things in the past and we are focused on the future."
Beginning the season 3-0-1 without allowing a goal, catapulted the Quakers onto the national radar screen. The Red and Blue began the season with a hard-fought tie with Marquette and followed it with wins against DePaul (2-0), Seton Hall (2-0) and American (1-0).
Penn opens its home slate Friday, Sept. 19 at 7:30 p.m., taking on Buffalo at Rhodes Field, admission to the game is free.
