COLUMBIA, Ky. -- Mid-South Conference women's soccer coaches selected Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) as the favorite to capture the 2017 regular-season title, conference officials announced on Tuesday.

The Blue Raiders received 49 voting points and seven of the eight first-place votes from the conference coaches. Coaches were not allowed to vote for their own team.

Lindsey Wilson won the Mid-South regular-season title for a third consecutive year in 2016. The title was its 16th MSC regular-season crown for the Blue Raiders.

Cumberland (Tenn.) is second in the preseason poll with 41 voting points, including the final first-place vote. The Phoenix tied for second in last season's regular-season standings with a 5-1-1 mark. Cumberland won its only MSC regular-season title in 2013.

Georgetown (Ky.) -- who tied Cumberland for second place last season -- is projected to finish third with 37 voting points. Cumberlands (Ky.) is fourth in the polling with 31 voting points.

Campbellsville (Ky.) picked up 23 voting points from the conference coaches to end in fifth in the poll while Shawnee State (Ohio) garnered 20 voting points to finish sixth. Life (Ga.) and Pikeville (Ky.) complete the preseason tally with 14 and nine voting points, respectively.

The 2017 women's soccer season begins in mid-August. The Mid-South Conference Tournament is scheduled for Nov. 3 and Nov. 9-10 in Bowling Green, Ky.
