Duluth, Minn. - It is a sweep for the St. Scholastica soccer teams as the men's team joins the women's teams as favorites to win their conference in 2014. CSS women's team earned the top spot in the UMAC Preseason Poll that was released on Tuesday.

The men's team from St. Scholastica was the unanimous favorite to win the league title again in 2014. That is according to a poll of the league's coaches. The Saints earned seven first place votes to go with 49 points. Minnesota-Morris was second with one first place vote and 42 points.
