SALISBURY, Md. - The Salisbury University men's soccer team has been ranked No. 20 by both D3soccer.com and the National Soccer Coaches Association of American, as each organization released their latest polls on Tuesday.
In the D3soccer.com poll, the Sea Gulls were ranked for the fourth consecutive week after picking up the No. 20 spot and receiving 259 points in the poll. Kenyon College took the top spot in the poll with 996 points and 20 of the 22 first-place votes. Franklin & Marshall College came in second with 958 points, and received the remaining two first-place votes. Rounding out the top five was Brandeis University with 856 points, Christopher Newport University with 831 points, and Amherst College with 824 points.
In the NSCAA poll, the Sea Gulls were ranked for the second straight week, and climbed two spots from last week's ranking of No. 22. Like the D3soccer.com poll, Kenyon and Franklin & Marshall claimed the top-two spots. Finishing out the top five of the NSCAA poll was Christopher Newport, Amherst, and Whitworth University.
Last week, the Sea Gulls went 1-1, losing to No. 14 Eastern University, but winning their first Capital Athletic Conference match of the season as they took down York College of Pennsylvania, 2-0.
The unanimously ranked No. 20 Sea Gulls return to action on Wednesday, September 30 when they host Catholic University of America in their last regularly scheduled CAC match of the season.
