The Rambelle soccer team made it to the top of the Lone Star Conference preseason poll, earning eight first-place votes and 82 total points according to angelosports.com.

As the Rambelles prepare for their first game against Adams State University on Sept. 4, the team has high hopes of going undefeated this season, Defender Ashley Exford said.

“I’m looking forward to hosting the Lone Star Conference Tournament , making regionals and making it to the NCAA Tournament,” Exford said. “Our strength as a team is our chemistry and work ethic.”

ASU is coming off a 16-5-1 season where they reached the LSC Championship Finals and the second round of the NCAA Division II Tournament, which was one of the best seasons in program history.

“Every team in our conference is going to give us a battle,” Head Soccer Coach, Travis McCorkle, said. “We got off to a great start last season in our nonconference schedule and then we had some struggles once we started playing in conference because each team is strong. There’s not one game in our conference schedule that you can overlook.”

After competing away against Adams State, the Rambelles will continue on a four-game road trip against New Mexico Highlands, Fort Lewis, Colorado Mesa and St. Mary’s University.

“I think the key to success is how hard the team is not just willing to work, but to work and play for each other,” Midfielder Cynthia Andrews said. “I think with this aspect we will be able to see great things come out of our season.”
