PSU Women’s Soccer Earns No. 1 Seed in NCAA Tournament

On Monday afternoon, the Penn State Women’s Soccer team learned that they will be a number one seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament. The Lions will play Long Island-Brooklyn (10-7-3) in the first round at 6 p.m. on Saturday at Jeffrey Field. Since Penn State is a number one seed, they will play all tournament games at home until the 2012 College Cup — the soccer equivalent of the Final Four played in San Diego.

Penn State is coming off yet another fantastic season, despite losing to Illinois 1-0 in the second round of Big Ten Tournament. The team went undefeated in Big Ten play (10-0-1) and 17-3-1 overall. Their phenomenal play in the conference gave the team yet another regular season title, their 15th straight.

The Nittany Lions were not short on personal accomplishments this season, either. Several conference awards were brought home including Eric Walsh winning Coach of the Year, junior Maya Hayes being named Forward of the Year, senior Christine Nairn earned Midfielder of the Year, sophomore Whitney Church was named Defender of the Year, and freshman Raquel Rodriguez was Freshman of the Year.

If the Nittany Lions win their first round match, they will play either Hofstra or Boston College in the Round of 32. A link to the full bracket can be found here.
