The Lenoir-Rhyne University Women's Soccer Team has risen in both the national and regional polls this week.
Lenoir-Rhyne also moved up one place to second in the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional Poll this week.
Other South Atlantic Conference schools in this week's regional rankings include Wingate (sixth) and Tusculum (seventh).
A total of six schools from the Southeast Region will be selected to the 2011 NCAA Division II Women's Soccer Tournament.
The six teams will include the league tournament champions from the Peach Belt Conference, the Conference Carolinas and the South Atlantic Conference in addition to three at-large teams.
