NSU women's soccer picked 3rd in MIAA

The Northeastern State women’s soccer team was picked to finish third in the 2013 Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletics Association preseason coaches’ poll released on Tuesday.

The RiverHawks, who finished 13-5-1 overall and 7-4-1 in the MIAA, finished the 2012 season after reaching the semifinals of the MIAA Conference Championship, where they fell to No. 12-ranked University of Central Missouri 1-0. The 13 wins tied the school record, and the .711 winning percentage was the best in school history.

NSU will return seven starters from that squad, including leading goal scorers junior midfielder Elizabeth Cudjoe and sophomore forward Lindsey Latta. Cudjoe was an All-Region performer and an All-MIAA First Teamer, and Latta was named to the All-MIAA Honorable Mention team.

The RiverHawks were slotted to finish behind nationally ranked teams Central Missouri and Central Oklahoma. Central Missouri is the favorite to win the league crown.
