LOS ANGELES - Both the UCLA men's and women's soccer programs were listed in the first rankings on the season released on Tuesday, as the women check in at No. 5, and the men debut at No. 19 in the NSCAA/adidas Preseason Top 25.

The UCLA women are coming off the school's sixth straight appearance in the NCAA College Cup.

The team opens up the season on Aug. 22 at preseason No. 1 North Carolina. The Bruins are scheduled to play eight of the preseason top 25 teams during the 2009 season.

The Bruin men are the defending Pac-10 Champions and finished the 2008 season with a 10-5-6 record and a 26th consecutive trip to the NCAA Tournament. UCLA opens its regular season on Sept. 4 at top-ranked and defending NCAA champion Maryland. The Bruins have four games scheduled against preseason Top 10 teams (Sept. 4 at No. 1 Maryland, Oct. 16 and Oct. 23 vs. No. 8 Cal, and Oct. 31 at No. 6 Creighton).
