ASHLAND, Ore. — Early Monday morning, the Cascade Collegiate Conference released their preseason poll, predicting the Southern Oregon Raiders to finish first.
The Raiders men's soccer team returns a majority of their core group while adding a fresh crop of young talent. Head Coach Davie Carmichael says that the balance of leadership and talent should lead to a successful season.
Rocky Mountain College is only two points behind SOU in the preseason poll, even after beating the Raiders in the conference tournament in penalty kicks last year.
Oregon Tech finishes 9th in the preseason poll.
