The Georgia soccer team was placed at No. 25 in the Top Drawer Soccer “Tournament 64” rankings, according to a statement released Thursday by Georgia sports communications.
Georgia finds itself in select-SEC company, as one of five teams from the conference ranking in the preseason tournament field.
Texas A&M was ranked the highest among the conference schools, at No. 5, while No. 14 Florida, No. 23 LSU and No. 31 South Carolina were also included.
Among Georgia’s other accolades from the preseason was being picked to finish second in the SEC East by the coaches, and also being named a ‘Program to Watch’ by Top Drawer Soccer before that.
The Bulldogs will open the 2012 season against UNC Greensboro, at 7 p.m. at the UGA Soccer Stadium.
