Kutztown University Daily Brief


KU Women's Soccer ranked #1 in the nation

The Kutztown University women's soccer team continues its historic 2017 season. With two more victories last week, the Golden Bears climbed all the way to the top of Division II. KU was voted first in the latest United Soccer Coaches Division II Week 5 Poll released Tuesday.
This is the first time that Kutztown women's soccer has been ranked number one in the nation.
The Golden Bears' (10-0 overall, 8-0 Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference) ten consecutive wins to open up the season is the most-ever for the program.

The Maroon and Gold return to action on Sunday, Oct. 8, when they take on Clarion University at noon at Keystone Field.


Weather forecasts are provided by KU's Dr. Michael Davis and "Monsoon Mike" Regensburger

The flow turns southwesterly today so temperatures will make a run at, or just past, 80 degrees. Clouds may begin to filter in a little more than the perfect blue skies of the past many days as a weak back door cool front tries to work in from the north but never fully makes it all the way through. A shower or two is possible later this evening or tonight, but nothing overly measureable.


Oct. 5, 3 p.m.
The KU Council of Trustees will meet today, Thursday, Oct. 5, at 3 p.m. in 250 MSU. The public is invited to attend.
