NAIA Sports Information
    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The University of Rio Grande is ranked second in the first NAIA Men's Soccer Coaches' Top 25 poll for the 2016 season, the national office announced Tuesday evening.
    The RedStorm, who spent the entire 2015 regular season ranked No. 1, fell from the top spot in the 2016 preseason poll after suffering a 2-0 loss at then-No. 18 University of Northwestern Ohio. The setback snapped a 19-game win streak which dated back to last year.
    Head coach Scott Morrissey's squad, which looks to start a new win streak on Friday night against former Mid-South Conference rival - and 19th-ranked Lindsey Wilson College, earned five first-plae votes and 452 total points in the balloting of a panel of head coaches representing each of the conferences, Association of Independent Institutions and Unaffiliated Groups.
