Men's Soccer picked to finish tied for third in MSC Preseason Polls

Columbia, Ky. – It has been just a little over the week since the men’s soccer team reported to campus to begin training for the 2015-16 season and since then the Mid-South Conference has released the coaches’ preseason poll for the upcoming season.

St. Catharine was selected to finish in a tie for third place picking up 36 points. The Patriots also picked up a first place vote. Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) is slated as the favorite to repeat as the Mid-South Conference men’s soccer regular season champions. The Blue Raiders picked up 49 voting points, including seven of the eight first-place votes.

Campbellsville (Ky.) was projected to finish in second place picking up 39 voting points. Cumberland (Tenn.) came into a tie with the Patriots for third place also picking up 36 voting points. The trio of Campbellsville, Cumberland and St. Catharine tied for second in the conference last season with a 5-2 mark in the Mid-South.

Cumberlands (Ky.) was selected to finish in fifth place with 22 voting points followed closely by Shawnee State (Ky.) with 21 voting points. Georgetown (Ky.) and Pikeville (Ky.) rounded out the rankings receiving 14 and seven voting points, respectively.

The ballot was voted on by the conference coaches and they were not allowed to vote for their own team.

The tied for third projection is the highest for Tim Wolz’s team in his five seasons at St. Catharine. The Men’s Soccer team takes the pitch for their first regular season game at home on August 29th against Freed Hardeman (Tenn.).
