On the heels of a seven game winning streak, the Oglethorpe men's soccer team earned the program's first-ever national ranking on Tuesday morning when they entered the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll at No. 25.
At 10-2-0 the Petrels are off to their best start in school history and the NSCAA voters took notice, elevating them into the polls for the first time in the program's 50 year history.
Oglethorpe will look to solidify their new ranking when they travel to face Rhodes College (Friday) and Millsaps College (Sunday) this coming weekend. A win over Rhodes would give the Petrels a school-record 8th straight victory.

The NSCAA conducts the most widely recognized national and regional soccer ranking system in the country as a service to the general public and its members. The intent of the rankings program is to stimulate greater interest in men's and women's soccer at the intercollegiate and interscholastic levels and to recognize those programs that are enjoying remarkable success on a regional and national level.
