PISCATAWAY, N.J. (September 24, 2013) – The first NCAA women’s soccer Rating Percentage Index (RPI) of the 2013 season was released yesterday, featuring Rutgers as the No. 12 team in the nation. The Scarlet Knights (7-1-1) boast a 6-0 home record this season and are unbeaten in their last four matches (3-0-1).
“RPI is one of the key elements of NCAA at-large selection,” said head coach Glenn Crooks. “While it is still quite early in the process, the high ranking indicates a good strength of schedule with quality results.”
RU opens up its American Athletic Conference slate this weekend, when the squad takes on Cincinnati (Sept. 27) and Louisville (Sept. 29).
“I am very impressed with both Cincinnati and Louisville, so it will be a great challenge to maintain our status in the RPI index,” Crooks said.
Crooks and his staff guided the program to 13-straight conference tournament appearances when RU was a member of the BIG EAST.
