Rutgers-Camden, which posted a 2-0 record in a pair of games last week, is now ranked No. 19 after falling into the receiving votes section of the top 25 poll in the Oct. 16 poll. That one week marked the first time the Scarlet Raptors weren’t in the NSCAA Top 25 since Sept. 20, 2011.
Rutgers-Camden has appeared in one or both of the national rankings – either receiving votes or among the Top 25 – for 19 consecutive weeks, dating back to Sept. 13, 2011. For the last 17 weeks, the Scarlet Raptors have been ranked in the Top 25 in at least one of the two national polls.
The Raptors’ bounce-back week included a 2-1 victory against Haverford on Wednesday and a 3-1 victory at New Jersey Athletic Conference opponent Ramapo Saturday. Those wins raised the Scarlet Raptors’ record to 13-2-2 overall and 5-2-1 in the NJAC.
Rutgers-Camden currently is sitting in the second seed for the NJAC playoffs with one more conference game remaining until it attempts to defend its 2011 conference championship.
