No. 13/8 DePaul's underdog mentality has worked well for the women's soccer team all season, and the Blue Demons will be bringing that attitude to Wish Field on Friday.
DePaul women's soccer captains Rachel Pitman and Elise Wyatt were named to the Capital One 2014-15 Academic All-District Women's Soccer Team on Thursday.
DePaul is back on the ascent on the national soccer scene as the Blue Demons rose to No. 8 in the Soccer America Women's Top 25 announced on Tuesday morning. That's up one spot from last week's poll.
Following up the upbeat announcement about Ben and Gorden came confirmation that DePaul has clinched a top-two finish in the BIG EAST regular-season standings and has earned a first-round bye in the conference tournament.
Somehow on Senior Day Saturday, No. 13/9 DePaul found a way to win when it wasn't playing its best soccer.
For all those wondering how No. 13/9 DePaul could be having such an amazing soccer season, listen closely to the colorful tales and heartfelt expressions of the eight seniors who will be honored on Saturday before their BIG EAST Conference match against Xavier at Wish Field.
