Local and state briefs

The No. 14-ranked Northeastern State men’s soccer team was selected second in the 2013 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association Preseason Coaches’ Poll, which was released on Thursday.

This is the second straight year the RiverHawks (13-5-3 last year) were projected to finish runners-up. They are coming off a 2012 season where they placed second in the MIAA in both the regular season and in the MIAA Championship. They finished the season ranked No. 11 in the country after advancing to the NCAA quarterfinals for the first time in school history.

NSU returns nine starters from that squad, including All-Americans Juan Peralta and Eric Crawford.

No. 18-ranked Lindenwood, the defending conference champion, was slotted atop the preseason polls with 34 points and four first-place votes. NSU was second with 31 points and two first-place votes, while No. 23 Fort Hays State was third with 28 points and the other first-place vote.

NSU begins its season Sept. 6 at William Jewell College.
