Women’s Soccer Ranked No. 2 In NSCAA Preseason Poll

Erica Dambach’s defending National Champions received high praise Tuesday, as the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) preseason poll ranked the Nittany Lions No. 2 in the land behind only Florida State with less than three weeks to go before the season opener.

Dambach’s squad picked up 731 points (20 behind the Seminoles), with 10 first-place votes to Florida State’s 18. The only other team to tally a nod as the nation’s best was No. 3 Duke, who the Nittany Lions beat 1-0 in the National Championship on Rocky Rodríguez’s heart-stopping goal.

Penn State recently unveiled a new crest commemorating its first national title in program history, as well as some fresh kits for the 2016 season. Junior forward Megan Schafer was named to the MAC Hermann Watch List a few weeks back, which recognizes the nation’s top collegiate male and female fútbol player. Rodríguez brought home the hardware this past January following a tremendous senior campaign.

The Nittany Lions will host No. 6 West Virginia at Jeffrey Field on August 19 at 7:30 in a rematch of last year’s Elite Eight, which saw Penn State come out on top 2-0. The game will be broadcast on Big Ten Network. As always, parking and admission is free during the regular season.
