Alta soccer was nationally ranked last year at the end of a Class 5A championship run now the Hawks are drawing attention again.
Coming off a 3-2 win over previously undefeated rival Brighton, Alta is now listed at No. 17 in the National Soccer Coaches Association of America poll, posted on Tuesday. The Hawks are ranked No. 1 in Class 5A by The Tribune, and have scored 38 goals this season while only allowing seven. It's not quite the historic run they had last year, but they aren't doing too bad.
Currently, Davis is the only other undefeated squad in 5A. Viewmont is leading Region 2 again, Brighton nearly topped Alta last week, and there appears to be a number of Region 4 teams clumped together that could make a run.
