McNeese Soccer Tabbed to Finish Seventh in SLC Preseason Polls

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.
