CLEMSON, S.C. – After securing a win over Arkansas and earning a draw against Georgia, the Clemson Tigers move up to the No. 8 spot after the conclusion of week four, the United Soccer Coaches announced on Tuesday.

After week one, the Tigers moved into the 19th slot but then jumped to No. 11 after week two. In week three, Clemson moved into the top-10 as they earned the No. 9 ranking. The Tigers remain within the top portion of the rankings as they secure the No. 8 spot in week four.
At the conclusion of week four, goalkeeper Halle Mackiewicz was named ACC Defensive Player of the Week for the first time in her career.
