Women's Soccer Debuts in Soccer Buzz Central Region Rankings
Sept. 28, 2004
Memphis, Tenn. - In the midst of a three-game winning streak including a win over the defending Conference USA champions DePaul, the Memphis women's soccer team made its debut in the Soccer Buzz regional rankings on Tuesday. The Tigers came in at #15 in the Central Region, and are one of only three Conference USA schools to be ranked in the regional rankings. UAB is ranked in the Southeast Region while Louisville is ranked in the Great Lakes Region.
Soccer Buzz, an online publication devoted to women's soccer, ranks the top 30 national teams and also ranks the top 15 teams in six regions across the country. It is the first time in program history that Memphis has received a regional ranking.
"This is another step in the right direction of building a winning program," said head coach Brooks Monaghan. "While we are pleased to be ranked, we also realize that we have a long way to go to get to where we want to be and that we can easily slip up if we don't do the things we need to do to be successful."
The Tigers (7-2, 1-0 C-USA) will travel to Texas for a pair of games against TCU and Houston this weekend. Their next home game will be next Friday, October 8, against Charlotte at 7:00 p.m. at the Mike Rose Soccer Complex.
