Dec. 20, 2007
Chicago, Ill.- After making a historic run to the NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight, the UIC men's soccer team made even more history this week by finishing 10th in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA)/adidas Final Division I 2007 Postseason Poll that was unveiled late Thursday.
The No. 10 national ranking is the highest UIC has finished a season in the national charts. It is also the Flames' highest national ranking of any kind since they were ranked 10th by College Soccer News from Oct. 9-15, 2006.
UIC also earned its highest ranking in the NSCAA/adidas national poll since achieving a No. 7 ranking on Sept. 26, 2006.
The Flames' final 2007 ranking is also the first time that UIC has finished the season in the NSCAA/adidas national rankings since 2000, when the team was ranked 21st in the year's last poll.
UIC completed the 2007 campaign 13-6-6 overall and captured its first Horizon League Tournament title since 2000. The Flames went on to advance to the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals for the first time in team history.
