Now that we know when the Syracuse Orange fall sports are about to kick off, let’s look at where they are predicted to finish in the ACC preseason polls, which were all released at various points in the last week or so.

Cross Country

The defending men’s champion Orange were placed second behind the Notre Dame Fighting Irish while the Syracuse women were picked fourth. It sounds like Syracuse will run in at least two meets before the ACC Championships, but we’ll pass along more information when that is confirmed.

Field Hockey

The Orange received one first place vote in the coaches poll but that was only good enough for sixth place out of the seven ACC teams. Defending National Champion North Carolina received the other six first-place votes. Laura Graziosi and Charlotte de Vries were named to the Preseason All-America team.

Women’s Soccer

Expectations aren’t high for the Orange women, but we saw progress in Nicky Adams’ first season so Syracuse could surprise this season. North Carolina is picked to defend their ACC title, while SU is currently picked to finish at the bottom of the league standings.

Men’s Soccer

The Syracuse men were predicted to finish fourth in the North Region with the Clemson Tigers the preseason favorite. Sondre Norheim was named to the Preseason Watch List.

Volleyball

Syracuse was predicted to finish sixth with the Pitt Panthers the preseason favorite. Orange standout Paulina Shemanova was also named to the preseason All-ACC team.
