Women's soccer team ranked 12th in the state

The California Community College Athletic Association Women's Soccer State and Regional Poll was released for the third time this season late last week.

And for the first time in the two years of the poll, Irvine Valley's women's team made the state rankings. Fifteen teams make up the state poll.

The Lasers, who have a record of 6-1-2 overall, were ranked 12th in the state and sixth in Southern California.

The top-five ranked teams in Southern California ahead of IVC were Santiago Canyon, Cerritos, Chaffey, San Bernardino Valley and Ventura.

The Lasers, under the direction of second-year head coach Joe Supe, are off to the best start in program history.

They are also tied for second-place in the Orange Empire Conference with a record of 3-1-1 overall.

IVC finished last week with a loss and a tie, falling at Cypress on Tuesday and then tying Saddleback at home on Friday.

Irvine Valley plays Santiago Canyon, which is also the top-ranked team in the state, on Tuesday at 1 p.m. at IVC.
