The Lenoir-Rhyne Women's Soccer Team is ranked No. 22 in the 2014 NSCAA/Continental Tire NCAA Division II National Preseason Top 25 Poll. NSCAA is the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.




Lenoir-Rhyne is coming a 14-4-2 season last fall en route to its fourth consecutive South Atlantic Conference Regular Season Championship.


The Bears also hosted the NCAA Division II Southeast Regional Tournament for the second time in three years and earned a trip to the national playoffs for the fourth straight season in 2013.


Lenoir-Rhyne, under first-year Head Coach Tammy DeCesare, returns several key players from last season's squad including junior All-American midfielder Garcelle Alequine (Wilmington, Del.) and junior forward Leah Mullins (Kissimmee, Fla.).


Alequine led the Bears in goals scored (nine) and total points (23) while Mullins finished with seven goals, six assists and 20 points. Over the last four seasons, Lenoir-Rhyne has a combined record of 66-11-7.


Lenoir-Rhyne opens the season at No. 14 Rollins on Friday, September 5, at 7:00 p.m., in Winter Park, Fla. The Bears' first home match takes place on Wednesday, September 10, against USC Aiken beginning at 5:00 p.m.


Belmont Abbey (No. 19) and Wingate (No. 10) are two other opponents Lenoir-Rhyne will face in 2014 who are ranked nationally in the preseason poll.
