Soccer picked to win GLIAC

The Grand Valley State University women’s soccer team was picked to finish as the No. 1 team in the
GLIAC this season, as announced last week in the 2013 Women’s Soccer Preseason Coaches’ Poll.

GVSU received 144 points in the poll—the most points a team can earn. The Lakers advanced to their
fourth straight NCAA Final Four last season while posting a 20-2-3 record overall. The team has
dominated GLIAC opponents under head coach Dave Dilanni, winning eight straight conference titles
and all five GLIAC Tournament championships. Michigan Technological University finished second in
the poll with 123 points, while Saginaw Valley State University (120), Ohio Dominican University (102)
and the University of Findlay (91) rounded out the top five. GVSU returns to action on the road
tomorrow at Armstrong Atlantic State University in Savannah, Ga., at 1 p.m.
