The South Dakota State women's soccer team tabbed for second in the 2012 Summit League Women's Soccer Preseason Poll...

The Jacks received four of the nine first-place votes and finished with 59 total points, two points behind league-favorite Oakland. The vote consists of the league's nine head coaches.

SDSU finished second in the preseason poll for the fourth straight season, tying North Dakota State for second entering 2011. This season, the Jacks are alone in second by 12 points, followed by Kansas City (47) and NDSU (46).

Fort Wayne, IUPUI, Western Illinois, Omaha and South Dakota round out the preseason poll.

Only SDSU and OU received first-place votes.

The discrepancy between first and last place is small compared to last season, however. This season, OU finished with 61 points, while Omaha and USD finished tied-for-eighth with 16, a 45-point difference. Last season, OU's 77 points were 66 more than USD's 11.

The full release is available on The Summit League website.

The Jacks opened play on Wednesday night in a customized exhibition game against Minnesota. The Golden Gophers won the game 4-0.

SDSU returns to action tomorrow against Nebraska in its second exhibition of the season. Game time is set for 5 p.m. at Fishback Soccer Park.

The regular season begins on Friday, Aug. 17, at Green Bay.
