Denver Picked Second in BIG EAST Preseason Poll
Julia Feiss and Kendra Lanuza were named to Preseason All-BIG EAST Team
Jan. 26, 2018
The Pioneers received one first-place vote and 73 points total, finishing behind the Florida Gators, which earned the remaining nine first-place votes for 81 total points.
In just one year, the Crimson and Gold moved up two spots in the Coaches’ Preseason Poll and doubled the number of student-athletes on the preseason team. Last season, DU was selected to finish fourth in its inaugural season in the BIG EAST, garnering 55 points, and having one player named to the All-BIG EAST Team (Nicole Martindale).
The elevation in the preseason poll was rewarded after finishing runner-up in the BIG EAST Championship and third in the regular season with a 7-2 record in 2017.
Individually, junior attackers Kendra Lanuza (Littleton, Colo.) and Julia Feiss (Baltimore, Md.) were recognized on the Preseason All-BIG EAST Team, with Lanuza being a unanimous selection.
