West Virginia Clinches Regular Season Big 12 Soccer Title
October 19, 2012

In its inaugural season, West Virginia has claimed the Big 12 soccer regular season crown.

The Conference title marks the sixth regular season championship for coach Nikki Izzo-Brown and the WVU soccer program, which is currently ranked 19th in the nation.

The Mountaineers entered the day with 19 points with one match remaining at Texas, the league's second-place team. The Longhorns fell this evening at Baylor, 2-1 in double overtime, to secure WVU a point total that cannot be equaled.

West Virginia, 6-0-1 in Big 12 play and 10-3-4 overall, leads the Big 12 in points (35), goals (13) and assists (9) in conference games.

WVU was picked to place second by the league's coaches in the preaseason poll, receiving two of nine first place votes.

By clinching the regular season championship, West Virginia has assured itself of the No. 1 seed in the Big 12 Soccer Championship in San Antonio, Texas.

The Big 12 regular season concludes next weekend with the championship set for Oct. 31, Nov. 2 and 4 in San Antonio, Texas.
