Statesmen Receiving Votes to Start 2019 Pitch Season

Oskaloosa–The William Penn men’s soccer team will be in a strong position at the starting line as the NAIA’s preseason top-25 poll was released Wednesday.

WPU, which was 14-5 (8-3 Heart) last year, begins this fall at #33 with 16 points. It is the first time in program history that the navy and gold have been ranked in the preseason rating.

The Heart of America Athletic Conference will seek to ride a huge wave of momentum from last year after having two teams face off for the national title. Reigning national champion Central Methodist is the preseason #1, while defending runner-up Missouri Valley is second. Baker is at #9, while Benedictine (#26) and MidAmerica Nazarene (#36) join William Penn in the receiving votes section.

William Carey (Miss.), Madonna (Mich.), and Rio Grande (Ohio) round out the national top five.

WPU opens its campaign next Saturday, August 24 by hosting Avila in non-conference play at 4:30 p.m.
