BREVARD COUNTY • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Coming off of their first Sunshine State Conference tournament championship, the women’s soccer team has been tabbed to finish tied for fourth with Tampa in the league’s 2018 preseason coaches poll.
Florida Tech came in with a total of 64 points with one first-place vote.
