Lander tabbed seventh in Peach Belt Conference preseason poll

The Lander women's soccer team has been picked to finish seventh in the Peach Belt Conference this season, according to a preseason poll of the league's coaches, released today.

The league's coaches picked Columbus State to win the PBC women's soccer crown and North Georgia to finish second, followed by UNC Pembroke.

The Bearcats, who finished the 2016 season with a 4-11-1 overall record and a 3-8-1 mark in the PBC, received two fourth-place votes, two sixth-place votes, three seventh-place votes, two eighth-place votes and one ninth-place vote. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own teams. 

Columbus State is ranked No. 3 in the United Soccer Coaches preseason poll and is coming off its fourth consecutive PBC regular-season title and third straight PBC Tournament championship. North Georgia, which is ranked No. 13 in the USC preseason poll, made its deepest postseason run in program history last season. UNC Pembroke made the PBC Tournament semifinals last year and returns the PBC Freshman of the Year. 

Young Harris weighed in at fourth in the PBC coaches poll, followed by Flagler in fifth and Clayton State in sixth. Lander is seventh, while Georgia College is eighth and USC Aiken in ninth. Francis Marion and Georgia Southwestern rounded out the poll in 10th and 11th, respectively.

Lander will be led by a large senior class which includes two of their top offensive producers from a season ago in Kari George and Kayla Walker.

The Bearcats return 67% of their goals and 71% of their assists from last year.
