WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University men's soccer team was ranked No. 2 in the nation in CollegeSoccerNews.com's Preseason Poll. Additionally, a pair of Hoyas were named to CSN's Preseason All-American teams as the Hoyas look to replicate last year's success in 2013.

Last season, Georgetown made history with its first-ever trip to the College Cup and a national championship game appearance.
