49ers' men picked 3rd in preseason soccer poll

The Charlotte 49ers' men's soccer team, which advanced to the championship game of last season's Atlantic 10 Conference tournament, was picked to finish third in a 2008 preseason poll voted on by the league's 14 coaches.

Saint Louis is the preseason pick to win the league. Massachusetts, which advanced to the Men's College Cup last season, was picked to finish second.

Charlotte won 12 games last season under first-year coach Jeremy Gunn, the most by a 49ers team since 1997. The 49ers return nine starters from last season led by senior preseason all-A-10 forward Chris Salvaggione, who led the league with nine assists last season.

Charlotte opens the 2008 season with an exhibition Aug. 24 against High Point. The 49ers' first regular-season game is Aug. 29 at Davidson. The 2008 A-10 tournament is Nov. 13-16 at Duquesne.
