Seahawks crack top 25 in the nation

More news about: Salve Regina

NEWPORT, R.I. - For the first time in program history, the Salve Regina University football team has earned a spot on the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Division III Coaches' Poll, garnering a ranking of No. 24 in the nation. 

The Seahawks earned 109 points in poll, finishing just one point shy of No.23 Wittenberg (Ohio). Salve Regina captured a thrilling 37-33 victory over Curry on Saturday, improving to a perfect 7-0 on the season, including a 4-0 mark during NEFC Boyd Division play. 

Salve Regina has now won 13 straight contests dating back to October of last season, marking the longest active winning streak in all of Division III, and trailing only Harvard (14 straight) for the longest streak in NCAA football. The Seahawks have been ranked No.1 in the region since their convincing week four victory versus Endicott.

Although honored by the midseason recognition, Salve Regina is far from satisified. The Seahawks will face MIT on the road this Friday at 7 p.m. as they keep their eye on their first division title since 2000.
