BANNER ELK, NC--After a pair of wins last week, the Lees-McRae
Bobcats soccer team maintained its position as the second ranked
team in NCAA Division II according to the National Soccer Coaches
Association of America national poll. The Bobcats currently lead
Conference Carolinas with a 7-1 record, and are 6-0-1 in
non-conference play for an overall record of 13-1-1.
"Again, the recognition is great for everyone involved, the
players, coaches, alumni, administration. But these accolades are
not what we set out to do this season," commented Head Coach Chris
Whalley. "We still have much to accomplish in the next month and
will continue to remain focused on our team goals."
Last week the Bobcats won two games away from Tate Field,
defeating #13 Lander University while disposing of Conference
Carolinas rival Pfeiffer University 3-2 on their home field. With
three games remaining in the regular season, the Bobcats look to
clinch their first regular season Conference Championships since
2001 with a road game at Mount Olive Saturday before returning home
to face Belmont Abbey College Wednesday, October 24th. The Bobcats
wrap up the season with a non-conference match up against Chowan
College next weekend.
