SANTA CLARITA, Calif. – Five days after beating Southern Oregon University 2-1 in overtime, The Master’s College women’s soccer team learned that they were ranked No. 16 on the most recent NAIA Women’s Soccer Coaches Top 25 Poll.

The new ranking represents a five spot jump from last week’s poll, and is the highest TMC has been since the 2010 campaign when they were ranked No. 6 in the country.

Next to GSAC rival Vanguard (5-0), who ranks No. 2 on the poll, the Lady Mustangs (7-0) are the only team in the NAIA who currently has an unblemished record.

Also joining TMC in the rankings are fellow conference members, No. 6 Westmont (5-0-1) and No. 25 Concordia (2-0-2).

Looking forward, TMC’s next opponent, CSU San Marcos (3-0-1), retained their No. 15 ranking, which sets up nicely for Saturday’s 1:30 p.m. showdown at Reese Field.
