The Iowa High School Soccer Coaches Association has released their first poll for the 2017 season.

The Columbus/Winfield-Mt. Union Wildcats check in at No. 3 in class 1A in the first rankings of the year, trailing only perennial powers No. 1 Dyersville-Beckman and No. 2 Iowa City Regina. The Wildcats are coming off of a 2016 season that saw them finish 17-2 overall and earn a bid to the state tournament in Des Moines. Columbus/WMU fell in their state quarterfinal match last season with Carroll Kuemper Catholic 1-0 in overtime.
