BC Women's Soccer Ranked 4th In Preseason Poll

The NCAA released its first women's soccer preseason poll and the Boston College Women's team was ranked 4th in the country. BC finished the 2010 season 17-7-1, making it all the way to the College Cup semifinals before falling to Stanford. BC is one of six ACC schools to make the Top 25:

"North Carolina holds a No. 3 preseason ranking in the poll released Tuesday, followed by 2010 College Cup participant Boston College at No. 4, Florida State at No. 5, Maryland at No. 6 and Virginia at No. 10. Defending ACC champion Wake Forest holds the No. 18 spot.

Defending national champion Notre Dame holds the No. 1 spot in the poll, and 2010 NCAA runner-up Stanford is ranked second. The ACC's six ranked teams lead all conferences.

All six ranked ACC teams were among the conference record-tying eight that competed in the 2010 NCAA Tournament. Duke, another NCAA participant from last season, also received votes in the 2011 NSCAA preseason poll."

The women started training / practices yesterday. According to the BC official website they are primed for another big season:

"Boston College returns eight starters from the 2010 College Cup team including goalkeeper and team co-captain Jillian Mastroianni and defender and co-captain Alyssa Pember. Other key returning players include seniors Julia Bouchelle, Alaina Beyar, and Stephanie Wirth. The Eagles top two scorers - Kristie Mewis and Victoria DiMartino - are also back for the third season."

The team has a preseason scrimmage against Connecticut on Friday and opens the season next Saturday against Boston University. The Eagles lead the all-time series with the Terriers 6-1, including a 2-1 victory last year during the NCAA tournament. BC opens its ACC schedule on September 18th against Virginia.
