WSU Soccer Picked Seventh In Pac-10

Aug. 19, 2003

Washington State University's women's soccer team was predicted to finish seventh in the 2003 conference standings by a preseason vote of the Pacific-10 Conference soccer coaches, the conference office announced Tuesday.

WSU finished its 2002 season with an overall record of 11-7-2 and 5-2-2 in Pac-10 play. The Cougars finished third in the Pac-10 and made their second appearance in three years to the NCAA Tournament where they lost in the first round to Pac-10 rival Arizona State 2-1.

First-Year WSU head soccer coach Matt Potter, along with first-year assistants Pete Leebrook and Lindsey Jorgensen head into the 2003 season with a Cougar squad that returns nine starters and 21 letter winners from the 2002 squad.

Picked to finish first in the Pac-10 is Stanford with 77 points and six of ten first-place votes, followed by UCLA with 66 points and the remaining four first-place votes.

Six Pac-10 teams competed in the NCAA women's soccer tournament last season, tying the ACC for the most teams in the nation: Stanford, UCLA, Washington State, USC, California and Arizona State.
