McNeese Soccer Tabbed to Finish Seventh in SLC Preseason Polls

Posted: Updated:

The McNeese soccer team is predicted to finish seventh in both the Southland Conference preseason coaches' and sports information director polls, which the conference office released on Wednesday.

Two-time defending league champion Stephen F. Austin has been selected to repeat for a third straight season in both the coaches' and sports information polls.

McNeese returns 13 letterwinners and five starters from last year's squad that finished 8-10-2 overall and advanced to the SLC Tournament.

The Cowgirls open the 2013 season on Fri., Aug. 13 against Jacksonville State. The match kicks off a string of five consecutive non-conference home contests, including key match-ups with Texas State and Louisiana Tech in town on the same weekend.
