(11/8/13) – CollegeSoccer360.com's exclusive tracking of the winningest senior classes/4-year records in Division I women's soccer has returned for the 2013 season. Despite losing five games this season, Stanford still owns the top senior-class record by a wide margin (82-8-5/.889; with the second-place team Florida 11 wins back). Arch-rivals Florida (71-18-5) and Florida State (70-18-5) have near-idential won-loss-tie records over the past four season while Virgniia has charged up to 70-15-5.

See below for complete list of the 50-plus programs with the most victories from 2010-13. Some of the teams listed include a rundown of the program's current four-year players (can include redshirt juniors) along with five-year seniors (this info. will be added for all teams on this list).

The two teams tied for fifth on this list – Denver (68-11-6; .835) and Marquette (68-14-6; .807) – include a Pioneers team led by senior forward Kristen Hamilton and midfielder Nicholette DiGiacomo. DU closed 2012 by knocking off Maryland in the NCAA round-of-32 before giving host Stanford a battle in the round-of-16. Marquette had its own thriller in the 2013 NCAA round-of-16, being edge in penalty kicks at BYU (which had lost only once all season).

Each team listed below includes a note on the date and opponent for its next game.

... Here's the complete updated list of the nation's winningest senior classes, as of games played through Nov. 7, 2013 (note: when referencing these lists, please credit CollegeSoccer360.com with the research and – if possible – provide a direct link to this URL).
