KANSAS CITY, Mo. – The Northeastern State men’s soccer team vaulted to No. 20 in the nation in the most recent NSCAA national rankings released today.

The RiverHawks (2-0) spent this past weekend in St. Louis, Mo., earning victories over the University of Missouri-St. Louis (2-0) and Maryville University (1-0).

NSU was receiving votes in the preseason polls, but the team jumped into the top 20 following its successful start to the 2012 campaign.

Northeastern State was ranked on three occasions last year, earning a season-best mark of No. 14 on Sept. 13. NSU was also ranked No. 15 (Oct. 4) and No. 19 (Sept. 27.).

The RiverHawks will stay on the road for two more contests, as the team will head to Hays, Kan., Sept. 7-9 for contests with Colorado Mesa and Sioux Falls. Kickoff for the match with the Mavericks is set for 3:30 p.m.
