KU soccer jumps to No. 11 in national rankings


After another undefeated weekend, the University of Kansas women’s soccer team continued its climb in the NCAA top-25 rankings, released by the United Soccer Coaches Tuesday, checking in at No. 11. The ranking marked the highest for the Jayhawks in the coaches’ poll since 2014.

Kansas, which is 4-0-0 after the opening two weekends of the regular season, is the highest ranked team in the Big 12. Behind the Jayhawks are No. 22 West Virginia and No. 24 TCU. Baylor, Oklahoma, Texas Tech and Texas are also receiving votes in the poll. KU began the season unranked, before checking at No. 18 last week and jumping seven spots to 11th this week.

KU will open the weekend with a match against DePaul at 3 p.m. Friday for the Boilermaker Challenge Cup.

Tops in the Big 12, which is as it should be. Keep on Rock Chalkin', Jayhawks!

7 teams receiving votes is a strong % (Do all 10 schools have W soccer?) though not so much with none in the top 10 and only 1 in 20. Keep building ladies. Rep well.
