WINFIELD, WV -

You wouldn't normally think of West Virginia as a hotbed for soccer talent, but in Winfield that's a different story.

The Winfield girl's soccer team is currently ranked the 20th best team in the United States according to the National Soccer Coaches Association of America. They even got as high as17th during the year. 

"It's a phenomenal honor to have in our state and be us to representing at that level," said head coach, Marshall Hoff.

A final four appearance, a state runner up tile, and state championship has helped the Winfield girl's soccer team build a monster.

Despite the national attention, the girls won't allow themselves to get over confident.

"It feels great. We just try to keep it on the [down-low] and not make it a bigger deal than it needs to be," said senior left back, Mackenzie Arthur.

"We have to keep in our mindset not to let it get us cocky because it can get taken away from you at any minute," said junior forward, Jayne Lawman.

In addition to being ranked nationally; Winfield is currently ranked 4th in region IV.

The Generals are now 15-0 on the season after defeating St. Albans on Tuesday night. 

They next play at 6 p.m. on Thursday against Spring Valley at home.
