KANSAS CITY, Kan. – For the second consecutive year, Oklahoma State came in at No. 5 in the final national rankings of the National Soccer Coaches Association of America, which released its postseason poll today.
 
The No. 5 ranking matches last season’s finish as the best in program history. During the 2011 regular season, OSU reached its highest-ever national ranking when the Cowgirls occupied the No. 2 spot for eight-straight weeks.
 
OSU’s season included a school-record 22 wins, and along the way the Cowgirls advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Women’s Soccer Championship for the second-straight year and claimed their fourth consecutive Big 12 Conference championship by earning the league’s regular season title.
 
The Cowgirls finished 22-2-2 overall, losing to top-ranked and eventual national champion Stanford in the NCAA quarterfinals. Coach Colin Carmichael’s squad reeled off a school-record 21-game unbeaten streak in 2011, which also included a record 15 consecutive wins.
 
OSU finished the season with the NCAA’s third-best winning percentage (.885) and led the nation in goals-against average (.337) and shutouts (18).
 
In 2012, the Cowgirls will return seven players who started at least 11 games this season, including All-American goalie AD Franch and All-Big 12 Second Team performer Megan Marchesano.
