ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - The UCF women's soccer team held firm at No. 6 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and Continental Tire Poll for the second-straight week on Tuesday, maintaining its highest national ranking in two decades. The Knights (6-1-1) have ranked among the country's top 10 for five-consecutive weeks.

During the 1992 season, UCF climbed as high as sixth in the Intercollegiate Soccer Coaches Association of America (ISAA) poll, which is now the NSCAA rankings. The program's all-time highest ranking in the regular season was No. 3 during 1982 - the same year that the team finished as the runner-up in the national championship.

UCF is the second-highest ranked program in the state of Florida as Florida State reigns as the unanimous No. 1. Regionally, the Knights are one of the best at No. 2 in the NSCAA Central Region behind Oklahoma State, who is ranked seventh nationally.

UCF will ride a five-game unbeaten streak into the opening of conference play this weekend when it travels to Memphis on Friday at 8 p.m. EDT. The Tigers were selected as the Conference USA preseason favorite and are currently receiving one vote in the NSCAA poll. The Knights are the only C-USA team present in the national standings.

Season tickets are available for UCF's remaining home games, beginning at $30. A complimentary soccer scarf comes with each purchase. The Gold Pass, which includes season tickets to all volleyball, men's and women's soccer, women's basketball, softball and track and field contests, is also available now. For more information and to place an order, call the UCF Ticket Office at (407) UCF-1000 or visit UCFAthletics.com.
