KANSAS CITY, Kan. – Despite riding a six-match winning streak, the Columbus State women's soccer team dropped one spot in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America Poll to No. 11. The poll was released on Tuesday afternoon and records reflect matches played through Sunday.

It is the fifth week this season that the Lady Cougars are ranked inside the top 15 by the NSCAA.

During the winning streak, the Lady Cougars have outscored their opponents 21-1 and had a 551 minute scoreless streak which came to an end in Monday's 4-1 win over Flagler. On the offensive side of the ball, CSU has scored three or more goals in five straight matches with 11 different players scoring at least one goal.

For just the second week this season, defending national champions Saint Rose is not the top ranked team as the Golden Knights lost 1-0 in double-overtime against American International. Saint Rose dropped 16 spots to No. 17 while American International moved up to No. 16.

West Florida is now the new number one team but won't stay there long as No. 5 Armstrong Atlantic State defeated UWF 2-1 on Monday. West Chester, Minnesota State-Mankato, Grand Valley State and Armstrong round out the new top five.

Columbus State will play its fourth ranked opponent this season on Friday facing off against No. 14 North Alabama. So far this year, the Lady Cougars are 2-1 against teams ranked inside the top 25. Kickoff is set for 6:00 p.m. at the Walden Soccer Complex.
