The Watsonville High boys soccer team is back in the national ranks.
The Wildcatz are one of two local teams that were ranked by both Elite Soccer Report and the National Soccer Coaches Association of America.
Elite Soccer Report named Watsonville 10th in the nation. It was previously 12th overall. The only other California team in the top 10 is Carlsbad, which is ranked fourth in the nation.
Much like Watsonville (5-0-1), Carlsbad is undefeated at 12-0-1.
The NSCAA has Watsonville ranked seventh in Region IV. Itís the same ranking the Wildcatz had in the final NSCAA poll on April 24, about a month after the team won their ninth Central Coast Section title.
Alisal is also ranked in both polls. The Trojans are ranked 11th in the nation by Elite Soccer Report and 10th in Region IV by the NSCAA.
The two teams meet in one week.
