Leading the conference

Stacking up against the nation
West Florida is not only ranked No. 2 in the nation, the Argos are among the leaders in many top categories as well. UWF is ranked No. 14 in Division II in scoring offense and is one of seven teams to win every match this season. Sashana Campbell is tied for fifth in Division II with three game-winning goals while Shelby Bush is in the top-30 in total goals scored (7).
Senior Tori Fish has started 47 consecutive games for the Argos dating back to the 2010 season. Senior Rachel Cutts has started 29 consecutive games dating back to 2010, and sophomore Kelly Andres has started every game of her career at UWF with 26 starts.
Defense continues to impress
The Argonauts have allowed more than one goal just once this season. Two-time Defender of the Week Sarah Story has been a big reason for the Argos’ success, but she has had a wealth of help from defenders Rachel Cutts and Taylor Harbison. Last weekend against Christian Brothers and Delta State, it was a team effort as UWF outshot its opponents 51-11 and Argo keepers made a total of five saves on six chances.
