The Terriers, who boast an impressive 6-1 record, are ranked just behind Yale, which is 5-2-0. In third place behind the Terriers is Dartmouth with a 3-1-2 record.
With a 1-0 win at Fairfield on Friday, September 17th, coupled with Sunday's home victory against Brown, 2-1, the team is off to its best start since the 1996 season.
The Terrier offense has been led by juniors Meghann Cook (Melrose, MA) and Melissa Shulman (Huntington, NY) through the first seven games.
