KANSAS CITY, Mo. – As its winning streak hits seven matches, the Capital University men's soccer team continues to move up the National Soccer Coaches Association of America regional rankings. Capital now finds itself in the seven spot of the most recent Great Lakes Region poll.

Capital, now 7-1 entering Wednesday night's match against Ohio Wesleyan, moved up two spots in the regional poll. Last week, the team was ranked eighth before wins over The College of Wooster and Thomas More College.

The top three spots in the most recent rankings remain unchanged with Kenyon College (8-0-0), Ohio Northern University (8-0-1) and Oberlin College (7-1-0) holding those positions. Grove City College (7-1-0) moved up from sixth to fourth. Ohio Wesleyan University (5-1-2) falls one spot into fifth.
Following its match against the Battling Bishops on Wednesday afternoon, Capital will travel to play rival Otterbein University, for the first OAC match of the season, on Saturday, Oct. 1.
Senior Cheyn Roux (Davidson, N.C.) has led Capital offensively with six goals and one assist (13 points). Capital features nine different goal scorers and has outscored its opposition, 19-6, so far this season. Junior Justin Niswonger (Centerville, Ohio/Centerville) has solidified himself as the starting goaltender, sporting a 6-0-0 record, 0.17 goals-against average, and a .933 save percentage.
