CUA up to No. 12 in this week's coaches poll

WASHINGTON – CUA is up to No. 12 in this week’s Kookaburra/NFHCA Division III National Coaches Poll, released on Tuesday.  The Cardinals, who have won six straight games, are 10-1 this season, and have shut out five of their last six opponents.

CUA played just once last week, defeating conference foe Goucher 10-0 at home.  Colleen Harwood was the team’s top offensive performer, scoring four goals en route to earning Landmark Conference Offensive Player of the Week honors.  The Cardinals have been honored with a weekly award from the conference in each of the past five weeks.

The Cardinals won their tenth game of the season on Monday, earning a hard-fought 1-0 road win at St. Mary’s.

Salisbury once again maintains its spot atop the national poll this week with Franklin & Marshall, Bowdoin, Lynchburg and Skidmore rounding out the top-five.

CUA will next head to Huntingdon, Pa. on Saturday to face the No. 20 Juniata Eagles in a huge Landmark Conference showdown.  Both teams enter the contest unbeaten in league play and the winner will have the inside track on home field advantage for next month’s conference tournament.  Start time is 1 p.m.
