[TOP 25 SPOTLIGHT] After a weekend sweep of new Pac-12 schools Utah and Colorado, Washington State debuted at No. 25 in the Soccer America Women's Top 25 rankings with a 10-4-1 record. It is 4-1-0 in the Pac-12, its best ever start in the conference.

Freshman Jocelyn Jeffers had a goal and an assist in the 2-0 win over Utah, which was perfect in conference play going into the game, and led the Cougars with scored two goals and added an assist on Brandi Vega’s game-winning goal in the 4-0 victory over Colorado.
 
“We were really excited about how we performed in the first half because we weren’t satisfied with how we performed Friday,” Washington State coach Matt Potter said after Sunday's game against Colorado. “Jocelyn had a great weekend. The more comfortable she gets with her surroundings, the more she is going to improve. I honestly think the sky is the limit for her.”

Jeffers and Vega lead WSU with five goals and five assists apiece.

Jeffers and older sister Zoe, a junior defender, are two of six players Potter has recruited from Arizona.

Washington State, which tied No. 8 Virginia in Charlottesville earlier in the season, wraps up its regular-season home schedule in Pullman Friday against No. 5 UCLA.
