Hartsville, S.C. – The Coker men’s soccer team continues to make history in 2009 as the 7-0 Cobra men received a #23 national ranking on Tuesday in the latest National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll. The #23 ranking marks the first time the Cobra men have received a national ranking in program history.

In addition to their #23 national ranking, the Cobras jumped up a spot in the Southeast region ranking to #3. Coker is joined in the rankings by fellow Conference Carolinas schools Lees-McRae (#4 national, #1 region), Anderson (#11 national, #2 region), and Mount Olive (#10 region).
