The Kutztown Area Patriot - - SPORTS - Cour­tesy KU athletics

The Kutz­town Univer­sity women’s soc­cer team con­tin­ues its his­toric 2017 sea­son. With two more vic­to­ries last week, the Golden Bears climbed all the way to the top of Di­vi­sion II. KU was voted first in the lat­est United Soc­cer Coaches Di­vi­sion II Week 5 Poll re­leased lastTues­day.

This is the first time that Kutz­town women’s soc­cer has been ranked num­ber one in the na­tion. It be­comes 1-of-3 KU pro­grams to be ranked No. 1 - join­ing 2007 base­ball and 2007 field hockey.

KU is also first in the United Soc­cer Coaches At­lantic Re­gion Rank­ings. Note: the of­fi­cial NCAA regional poll re­leased next month will play the de­cid­ing fac­tor in regional play­off seed­ings.

The Golden Bears (10-0 over­all, 8-0 Penn­syl­va­nia State Ath­letic Con­fer­ence) de­feated West Ch­ester Univer­sity 2-0 last Wednesday, Sept. 27 and then three days later took down Mer­cy­hurst Univer­sity 4-2.

In their first game at No. 1, KU downed Clar­ion, 6-0. Lead­ing scorer Emily Zwier­can scored her 10th goal in the vic­tory.

The 11 con­sec­u­tive wins to open up the sea­son is the most ever for the pro­gram.
