Cardinals move up two spots in national poll to No. 15

WASHINGTON – Following two more wins last week, the CUA field hockey team moved up two spots in the latest Kookaburra/NFHCA Division III Coaches Poll, announced on Tuesday.  The Cardinals check in at No. 15 this week after debuting at No. 17 in the poll a week ago.

CUA continues to make headlines with its impressive 8-1 start to the 2010 season.  In the latest womensfieldhockey.com rankings, the Cardinals find themselves in the No. 16 position.    

Fieldhockeycorner.com publishes weekly ratings of all Division III field hockey teams, and this week CUA is 13th with a rating of 96.9.  Among South Atlantic D-III schools, the Cardinals are fourth in the ratings. 

In nine games this season, the Cardinals have outscored opponents by a combined 39-6 score and outshot them 129 to 39.  CUA is allowing only 0.67 goals per game and has registered six shutouts. 

The No. 15 Cardinals are off this week before returning to action on October 5 when they take on Landmark Conference foe Goucher on the road.  Game time is set for 7:00.
