INDIANAPOLIS — In the latest installment of the NCAA Regional Rankings, Fort Hays State men's soccer checks in at No. 8 in Super Region 3.
Previously, the Tigers earned the seventh spot the super region before falling to Newman. FHSU then became the No. 9 ranked team but this week moves back up one spot after finishing the regular season with a pair of wins and a regular season conference title.
The top five teams in Super Region 3 remained unchanged from last week. Lake Erie (Ohio) tops the field, followed by Bellarmine (Ky.), Ohio Valley (W.Va.), Maryville (Mo.) and McKendree (Ill.).
Along with FHSU, Cedarville (Ohio), which occupies the sixth spot, and Tiffin (Ohio), clocking in at seven, also have moved up one spot from the previous release.
Great American Conference foe Rogers State remains in the ranks, moving up one spot from No. 12 to No. 11.
With the GAC Tournament yet to be played, both FHSU and Rogers State will have an opportunity to rise in the NCAA rankings. The Tigers go head-to-head against the Bisons from Harding University on Friday (Nov. 15), while the Hillcats take on the Northeastern State RiverHawks.
The winner of those two matchups will be slated in the championship game on Sunday (Nov. 17).
This week's release of the NCAA Super Region Rankings will be the last before the NCAA Division II Selection Show, which airs on Monday, Nov. 18.
