The Sonoma State men’s soccer team has moved up to No. 2 in the NSCAA/adidas Top 25 poll, the highest the Seawolves have been ranked since they opened at No. 1 in 2003.
SSU, which moved up from No. 4 after wins over Seattle Pacific and Western Washington last week, is off to a 5-0 start, its best start since it opened 10-0 in the 2002. The Seawolves went on to win the national championship that year.
