Currently holding a 4-0 record, the University of Evansville men’s soccer team has started to garner some national attention and so has senior midfielder Ian McGrath.
The Aces are ranked No. 22 in this week’s TopDrawerSoccer.com Top 25 poll after completing a weekend sweep and capturing the 2017 ProRehab Aces Soccer Classic title. UE also received recognition in the United Soccer Coaches Poll as the Aces received four votes and are ranked seventh in the west region. The ranking is the first for the Aces since being ranked No. 30 in the College Soccer News poll in 2010.
After opening the season with five goals in four matches, including three game-winners, McGrath was selected to College Soccer News’ National Team of the Week. McGrath currently leads the nation in total goals (5), total points (12), and game-winning goals (3).
Evansville returns to action on Thursday when the Aces take on Grand Canyon at 9 p.m. (CST) in Phoenix, Arizona.
