The Minot State University women's soccer team was selected as the No. 8 team in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference annual preseason coaches' poll....

    MINOT, ND - The Minot State University women's soccer team was selected as the No. 8 team in the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference annual preseason coaches' poll released this morning.

    Minnesota State took the top spot in the poll accumulating 214 total points which was marginally ahead of runner-up Minnesota-Duluth who came in with 206 total points.

    Minot State collected 135 total points, just four points behind No. 7 Augustana College. The Beavers sat comfortably ahead of No. 9 and rival University of Mary who received 99 total points in the poll.

    Emilie Rebelo and Kelli Creese were named MISU's players to watch in the 2014 season.  Rebelo has seven goals and four assists in her career at Minot State. She led the Beavers with 53 shots last year and ended the season with the third most points on the team (4 goals, 2 assists).
    
    Creese headlined a backline that only allowed 1.33 goals against per game, which was seventh fewest in the NSIC. She logged the second-most minutes on the team for the Beavers in her freshman season and started in 14 games in 2013. She was also named All-NSIC Honorable Mention in 2013.

    The Beavers finished the 2013 season in eighth place, just making the cut to appear in the conference tournament for a second consecutive year. MISU was eliminated in the first-round by No. 1 seed Minnesota State.  In 2012, Minot State won the NSIC conference tournament as the No. 4 seed.

    The team opens their season on Sept. 7 at Southwestern Oklahoma State University. Their home opener is set for Sept. 11 against Southern Nazarene University.
