Pitt women’s soccer is ranked No. 20 in the United Soccer Coaches’ Poll, the organization announced Tuesday.

Making their debut in the rankings in the 2021 season, the Panthers received the most votes outside of the top-25 in the previous week. Pitt is also tabbed No. 21 in the TopDrawerSoccer Poll and receiving the most votes outside of the ranked teams in the College Soccer News Poll.

Pitt has won all four games so far this season with a goal aggregate of 16-2. The Panthers opened the season by winning the BancFirst Cowgirl Soccer Invitational, defeating Tulsa 3-0 and then beating the host, then-No. 16 Oklahoma State, 3-2 in overtime. Last week, Pitt produced 5-0 shutouts at home against both Cleveland State and NJIT.

Strong start fuels second-straight 5-0 shutout victory for Pitt women
