Men's Soccer Earns National/Regional Recognition
ST. DAVIDS, Pa.--Eastern Men's Soccer broke into the ranks of the top-25 teams in the country according to the latest poll from D3Soccer.com.
The Eagles were chosen as the No. 25 team in the country on Tuesday in D3Soccer's week five poll after Eastern defeated Albright College and regionally-ranked opponent Drew College.
Eastern entered the road match against Drew ranked No. 9 in the Mid-Atlantic Region while Drew was ranked No. 7. The Eagles pulled off the road upset 2-1.
With the wins, Eastern moved up to No. 5 in the NSCAA (National Soccer Coaches Association of America/Continental Tire) Mid-Atlantic Region ranking.
All polls are updated weekly on Tuesdays.
The NSCAA's national ranking is filled based on regional representation. Therefore, teams 1-8 in the national ranking are the No. 1 teams in each region. These rankings are determined by a committee of coaches. NCAA.com republishes the NSCAA's rankings on its website.
D3Soccer.com intends on choosing the best teams in the nation, regardless of what region they come from. The D3Soccer.com Top 25 is voted on by a panel of coaches, sports information directors and media members from across the country.
Neither poll indicates a team's eligibility for the NCAA tournament.
