In the preseason poll that came out on August 14, the Wildcats earned the No. 6 spot voted by the coaches.
Baker received 424 total points this week and began the season with one of the toughest schedules in the country.
Baker began the season with a 2-2 double overtime draw with No. 9 Westmont, and then followed that up with a road victory at No. 24 University of Science and Arts, 3-1.
The Wildcats first loss of the season came in heartbreaking fashion in a 1-0 double overtime loss at No. 11 Oklahoma City.
