Following the team’s pair of victories at the Lady Vol Invite over the weekend, the Kansas University soccer team finds itself in the Soccer Times’ Top 25, checking in at No. 23 this week.

This marks the first time since September of last season that the Jayhawks have been ranked in the Top 25.

The Jayhawks have been ranked at least one week in each of the last seven seasons, dating back to 2003.

The current team is 3-0 after victories over Drake, Pepperdine and Arizona State.

Kansas returns to action Friday, when it hosts Long Beach State at 5 p.m. in the Jayhawks' first home match of the season.

Is this the men's team, women's team, or the team comprised of ninja robots? Since you did not specify, I'm going to assume ninja robots.

sandrat: KU's only NCAA soccer team is female. If the story were about a men's team, the article would have most likely identified them as an intramural club.

my bad. I'm really disappointed that the robot ninjas have not benefited from Title IX.... and I'm genuinely surprised that we don't have a men's team.

Go KU Soccer!

The robot ninjas are getting their day, just as soon as the legistlation on Title 00100010010101 gets finalized.
