GREENSBORO, N.C. - Two-time defending NCAA champion North Carolina leads a strong Atlantic Coast Conference contingent in the 2010 NSCAA Women's Soccer Preseason Poll, which was released Tuesday afternoon.
The Tar Heels hold the No. 1 ranking, and three other ACC teams are among the top 10. Florida State and Boston College, which shared the 2009 regular-season conference title, are ranked sixth and seventh respectively. Wake Forest holds a No. 10 preseason ranking.
Virginia Tech checks in at No. 15, while Maryland is ranked 16th and Virginia 17th.
