Auburn Soccer Reaching New Heights

While many of us are busy toiling over our football team's problems, Auburn coach Karen Hoppa has been building something powerful and relentless. It's the Auburn soccer team that is doing what many had hoped our major revenue sport would do. Winning. 


According the AU-fficial Auburn website this team has reached the highest national ranking in school history. 
"The No. 8 ranking sets a new highest ranking ever achieved by the Auburn soccer program in its history. This year, Auburn has been ranked for the past six weeks, reaching No. 9 nearly three weeks ago before the SEC opener, which was the previous high. Before this year, Auburn had only reached the top-ten once back in 2004, en route to a 15-win season, which is still a school record for wins in a season."

Last night an Auburn Senior class finished undefeated against Alabama by beating their arch rivals in Tuscaloosa for the fourth consecutive season. A rare feat indeed.
