Both the Swarthmore men's (4-0) and women's (5-0) soccer teams are still unbeaten - and both are still climbing the national rankings.

Fresh off its 1-0 upset of previously No. 2 Stevens, the Garnet men climbed two spots in the national poll to No. 9. Not to be outdone, the women's team - coming off thrilling victories over Eastern (2-1) and Elizabethtown (1-0 OT) - moved up eight spots to No. 15, the highest ranking in program history. Regionally, both the men and women are ranked No. 2 in the Mid-Atlantic region - with each trailing No. 1 Messiah respectively. more
