Cardinals ranked 15th in this week's national poll

WASHINGTON – Despite winning both of its games last week in convincing fashion, the CUA field hockey team dropped one spot in this week’s Kookaburra/NFHCA National Poll.  The Cardinals check in at No. 15 this week with their 11-2 record.

CUA moved up one spot in this week’s rankings where the Cardinals are currently No. 19.  In the national ratings, the Cardinals are 16th, while in the South Atlantic ratings they are fifth.  Both of those ratings are up from last week. 

With its eight goals last week, CUA continues to lead the Landmark Conference in scoring at nearly three goals per game (2.91).  The Cardinals also top the conference stats in scoring average, shutouts, goals against average, goals scored, and fewest goals allowed. 

Individually, Mary Swarthout ranks fourth in the conference in goals and points, while Meredith Chandler and Emma Dixon are tied for sixth in points.  Defensively, Krysyanna Ramsdell paces the league in shutouts with seven and goals against average (0.81).

No. 15 CUA will return to action on Friday, October 22 when the Cardinals host Drew in a pivotal Landmark Conference showdown.  Game time is set for 6:00 from inside Cardinal Stadium.
