MSU men's soccer team ranked No. 1 in nation
Midwestern State is No. 1 for the first time in 24 years.
The Mustangs took over the top spot in the National Soccer Coaches’ Association of America/adidas poll Tuesday morning after Lynn (Fla.) fell 1-0 to Eckerd (Fla.) Saturday night in St. Petersburg.
“It’s good for the program and the school,” MSU coach Doug Elder said. “For me, I’m just concentrating on playing a good, hard match Friday. We’ll enjoy the moment, but continue to work hard.”
The Midwestern State men’s soccer program last reached No. 1 on Sept. 24, 1984, after finishing as NAIA national runner-up in each of the previous two seasons. MSU proceeded to fall to Hardin-Simmons (Texas) the next day by a 4-1 margin.
