AUM women's soccer moves up to No. 13 in NAIA poll | Schools
The NAIA released its second Women's Soccer Coaches' Top 25 Poll earlier today, with the Auburn Montgomery women's soccer team moving up one spot to No. 13.
AUM received 375 points in the poll, a 49 point jump from last week. They are once again one of four teams from the Southern States Athletic Conference to make the Top 25. The SSAC tied the Golden State Athletic Conference with the highest number of teams represented.
The Warhawks played only one match last week, a 1-1 tie against Division II Montevallo on the road. AUM outshot the Falcons 28-4, and remained unbeaten with a 3-0-1 record so far in 2012.
The Warhawks have been led this year by senior team captain Margret Albertsdottir, who leads the team with five goals and 11 points. She has scored in all four matches in 2012.
Maria Ros Arngrimsdottir and Karina Suetsugu have added two goals each. Arngrimsdottir leads AUM with 12 shots on goal.
Lee University dropped out of the No. 1 spot after the Lady Flames saw their nation-leading 21 match win streak end with a 3-1 loss to Embry-Riddle. Lee falls two spots to third, with Concordia (Ore.) moving into the top spot with 591 points and 20 of the 21 first place votes.
The Cavaliers are 6-0 this season, including a 2-0 victory over No. 2 Lindsey Wilson, which also jumped ahead of Lee with 563 points. Embry-Riddle and Oklahoma City round out the top 5.
AUM returns to action this week with a pair of road matches, beginning on Thursday night with a 6 p.m. matchup at Thomas University. The Warhawks will then travel to Freed-Hardeman on Saturday in their final match before the beginning of SSAC play.
