Philadelphia, Pa. - The Holy Family University women's soccer team was awarded the sixth seed in the upcoming NCAA Division II East Region Tournament, as announced on NCAA.com during the selection show Monday night. This marks the first time since 2009 that Holy Family will compete in the NCAA Tournament and the third time since 2007.
The Tigers (13-7-0) received the number six seed and will face number three Merrimack College (16-3-0) in the first round this Friday at the Plumeri Sports Complex in Albany, N.Y. as second-seeded, The College of Saint Rose, serves as host. The Golden Knights earned a first round bye and will face the winner of the Holy Family/Merrimack contest in the second round on Sunday, Nov. 13. Game times are currently still to be determined.
Holy Family earned the CACC's automatic qualifying bid after defeating Philadelphia University, 1-0, in the CACC Championship this past Saturday. Senior Dawn Curry, the tournament's Most Valuable Player, scored the game-winning goal in the 66th minute of action after heading the ball into the back of the net off a corner kick attempt by senior Lindsay Fisher.
More information on this weekend's tournament will be available later this week.
