After recording two victories over the weekend, the UK Women’s Soccer team made history by climbing to No. 9 in the HeroSports Soccer Poll. It’s the highest the team has ever been ranked, eclipsing the mark of No. 13 back in 2013. In 2013, the Wildcats advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament so this should be a good omen moving forward.

They are one of three SEC teams – Florida at No. 6 and South Carolina at No. 10 – to be ranked in the top 10 this week. The Wildcats moved to 8-1-1 on the year after a 1-0 win over Alabama on Friday and a 4-1 win over Butler on Sunday. As a nice warmup for the football game on Saturday, Kentucky hosts Missouri on Friday at 7:30. If you can, get out there and support the team.

Congrats to the women’s soccer program on the historical mark.
