Lobo Soccer preseason forecast is good

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Jeremy Fishbein and his Lobo soccer team are fifth in a national preseason poll and first in the Conference USA preseason poll. The Lobos are the defending champions of Conference USA and received 7 of 9 first place votes in the 2014 preseason poll.

Their number five selection in the NSCAA poll is their highest preseason ranking since being selected number three in 2006.

“It’s a situation we want to be in. It’s an earned situation and it’s hard to maintain it,” said Fishbein, “So we got to embrace it, enjoy it and know that everybody is gunning for you.”

The Lobos reached the College Cup in soccer last season. They start the exhibition season by hosting Ft. Lewis August 18, 2014. The Lobos open the regular season by hosting Akron August 29, 2014.
