The La Salle women’s soccer team drew the No. 25 ranking in the Soccer America poll. It’s the first-ever appearance in the national rankings for the Explorers, who are the only Division I team in the nation — men or women — not to have allowed a goal.

La Salle goes into Friday’s home game against No. 15 Dayton (7 p.m.) with a 10-0-1 record.
The Explorers are received votes in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America national poll for the second straight week and remain ranked third in the Mid-Atlantic Region.

Melissa Sanger, a redshirt senior from Kingsway High, has started all 11 games in goal, with 30 saves.

Freshman Kelcey Haycook (9 goals, 2 assists) and sophomore Renee Washington (5 goals, 2 assists) lead the team in scoring.
