Men's Soccer Ranked 10 in Regional Poll, Coach Records 100 Career Wins

On the heels of a 4-0 start to their 2013 campaign, the University of Dallas men's soccer team was ranked No. 10 for week two in a poll conducted by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA).

Head Coach David Hoffmann's Crusaders checked in with No. 2 Pacific Lutheran University as the only two teams currently with four wins in the Top 10. The rankings are for teams competing in the West Region at the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III level.

"I am proud of this young team and their quality start to the season," said Hoffmann. "It's nice to have peer coaches recognize what we are doing."

Additionally, Hoffmann recorded his 100th win with the Crusaders on Sept. 7 with a 2-1 victory over Rhodes College. In his 11th season as UD's men's soccer coach, Hoffmann is 100-68-12 with Dallas after a 4-0 start to the 2013 campaign.

Hoffmann's 100 wins are the high-water mark for UD coaches, as is a .588 career winning percentage. 17 victories from the 2007 season - to the tune of a .921 winning percentage - are also school records.
