ORLANDO, Fla. (UCFAthletics.com) - For the seventh-consecutive week, the UCF women's soccer team (9-2-1, 3-1 Conference USA) was named among the nation's top-10 teams in the country on Tuesday. The Knights moved up two spots to No. 8 in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) and Continental Tire Poll.

Regionally, the Knights are atop of the NSCAA Central Region for the second-straight week, claiming the No. 1 spot this year for the first time since 2009. C-USA rival Memphis checks in at No. 7 while Rice and East Carolina tie for the No. 10 slot. SMU is also receiving votes.
