Women's Athletics Notes

Notes on the early season success of the UT women's soccer and volleyball teams:

…The Texas women’s soccer team (3-1) is enjoying its loftiest national ranking in school history this week, moving up six notches to No. 4 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America /Adidas poll released Monday. During last weekend’s West Coast swing, Texas beat No. 11 California 2-1 in Berkeley and then dropped a 1-0 decision at No. 3 Stanford, Sunday. The team had previously knocked off No. 21 Duke.

…Slam magazine, a monthly basketball publication, has the UT women's hoops squad listed at No. 4 in its preseason Top 10 poll. The issue goes on sale Sept. 17. Duke University is the magazine’s choice as college basketball’s top women’s program followed by Tennessee. The preseason list has a Big 12 tint, with No. 3 Kansas State and No. 9 Texas Tech joining Texas in the women’s basketball elite. Coach Jody Conradt’s bunch reached the Sweet 16 last year before falling to eventual Final Four participant Duke.
