MORNING BRIEFING: Colorado College off to great start

Colorado College, the sole women's soccer-only Division I program in the country, moved into the Soccer America Women's Top 25 at No. 23 thanks to its 6-0-1 start highlighted by its 2-1 win over previously unbeaten Denver at last weekend's Air Force Academy's Falcon Invitational.

The Tigers, who have 29 winning seasons in 33 years of play, twice reached the NCAA Division I championship game, losing to North Carolina both times (1986 and 1989).

It's too early to tell how far CC will go in 2008. The Tigers will have a better idea of their chances after a road trip to Big Ten powers  Illinois and Purdue this weekend.

"We're off to a great start," said head coach Geoff Bennett. "But we know that we still have a lot of work to do, with a lot of room for improvement. We need to get right back to work this week, because we've got a couple unbelievable tough road games coming up at Illinois and Purdue. Hopefully, we'll stay on the ball and keep it going."

The seven-game unbeaten streak is CC's best in Bennett's five years at the helm.

A pair of sophomores -- Tiffany Brown (3 goals, 2 assists) and Sydney Fetter (2 goals, 3 assists) -- lead the Tigers in scoring.
