Tuesday, August 22, 2017 | 4:42 PM
Norwin's girls soccer team jumped eight spots in the Top Drawer Soccer national rankings without even playing a game yet.
Norwin is facing great expectations after winning the WPIAL Class AAA title last season and returning seven starters this fall. The Knights were 21-1-1 and made the PIAA quarterfinals.
Originally ranked No. 10 two weeks ago, Norwin vaulted to No. 2 on the eve of a new season.
Norwin has nine players committed to play college soccer, including forward Emily Harrigan (Rutgers), goalkeeper Sam Wexell (Ohio), defenders Eva Frankovic (Kent State) and Maddy Genicola (Duquesne) and midfielders Lexy Kendro (Duquesne) and Alyssa Victor (Duquesne).
Harrigan was named to the USA Today All-USA Preseason Team.
Norwin opens the season Sept. 6 at Bethel Park.
