SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team has cracked into the top-10 for the first time in program history, as they check in at No.9 in the latest Soccerbuzz top-30 poll. San Diego is also up five spots in the latest Soccer America top-25 poll to No. 12, and remained at No. 12 in the Soccer Times top-25 poll. The Toreros also held steady at No. 17 in the final NSCAA top-25 poll.
This past week, the Toreros concluded their season with 3-0 win over the University of San Francisco.
