MOUNT OLIVE -- Mount Olive College is ranked No. 7 in this week's NSCAA/Adidas Southeast Region men's soccer poll.

The ranking marks the fourth consecutive year the Trojans have earned regional recognition.

Mount Olive (2-0-0 overall) opened its season with a pair of wins in the annual Sleep Inn Classic at newly-named Ray and Chris Amon Field. The Trojans defeated in-state member Warren Wilson 3-0 on Friday and hammered Southern Virginia 7-2 on Saturday.

The Trojans earned their first-ever regional ranking in 2004, tying for fourth in the year-end poll. They earned their highest ranking in 2005, peaking at No. 1 in the region and No. 7 in the national top 25.

Mount Olive concluded last season ranked No. 8 in the final poll.

The Trojans return to action at home today against in-state rival Chowan University. Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. at Amon Field and is part of a doubleheader with the women's team.
