Penn State Women’s Soccer Climbs To No. 8 In Week Three Poll

Another week, another jump in the polls for Penn State women’s soccer.

The Nittany Lions climbed two more spots to No. 8 in the United Soccer Coaches Poll Wednesday afternoon. Penn State keeps creeping closer to the No. 1 spot after being ranked No. 10 last week.

After some impressive wins that include blanking No. 21 West Virginia and defeating a stout Monmouth team on the road, Penn State still remains undefeated on the season.

That wasn’t the only honor given to the team, as Mieke Schiemann was awarded Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week and earned a spot on the Women’s National Team of the Week. In this week’s action, Schiemann combined for two goals and one assist to propel the Nittany Lions over West Virginia and Monmouth.

Penn State will take a trip to California this week for two games, with its first match coming against Stanford at Maloney Field on Thursday, September 1. Kickoff is set for 10 p.m.
