The Oklahoma Wesleyan men’s soccer team is at the top of the conference and rankings as the regular season has come to a close. All that awaits is the possibility of postseason glory.
The Eagles (16-2-0) had an unblemished record in the Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference, going 5-0 this season.
OKWU is also atop the NCCAA Division I rankings and has been there for eight weeks. Seven of those weeks saw the Eagles receive all the first-place votes. The Eagles are No. 4 in the NAIA poll.
Eagles’ coach Jamie Peterson said he knows that a lot went into having such a great run through the regular season.
“The guys have worked hard and put in a lot of effort,” Peterson said. ”The coaching staff has been a huge help, getting our guys prepared each week.
“Obviously, to go 16-2, you have to be blessed a little along the way, and God’s blessed with good health and a great group of guys that seem to work extremely hard for each other.”
