USF Picked to Finish 3rd in American Division

By TOM ZEBOLD

USF Senior Writer

TAMPA - The 2012 Big East Women's Soccer Preseason Poll has USF finishing in the middle of the pack.

The Bulls were predicted to finish third in the American Division after they received 57 points in the poll.

Junior forward Demi Stokes had a strong USF debut in 2011 and was rewarded by being named to the All-Big East Preseason Team on Tuesday. Stokes tied for the team lead in goals (4) and led USF in points (12) last season despite missing some game action with an injury.

Here is a look at the Big East preseason poll and the conference's preseason awards:
