William Penn Down to #12

Oskaloosa–A loss in its regular season finale has dropped the Statesmen men’s soccer team a few slots nationally as the NAIA released its ninth top-25 poll Wednesday.

William Penn (14-4, 9-2 Heart) fell three positions since last week, down to #12 with 317 points. Despite the fall, WPU has now been ranked in the top 25 for six consecutive polls.

WPU continues to be one of five Heart of America Athletic Conference programs in the rating with all five now in the top 25. Central Methodist remains #1 with 498 points and 17 first-place votes, while Grand View, at #15, Baker, at #19, and Missouri Valley, at #24, join WPU and CMU.

Following Central Methodist in the top five is Columbia (Mo.) (with the final first-place vote), William Carey (Miss.), Westmont (Calif.), and Mobile (Ala.).

William Penn enters the Heart Tournament as the #2 seed and will host #7 seed MidAmerica Nazarene Friday in the quarterfinals at 6 p.m.
