YORK, PA – The York College women's lacrosse team earned their seventh straight NCAA Tournament berth as the Spartans earned an at-large bid as the field was announced on Sunday night. York was one of three Capital Athletic Conference teams to earn a tournament berth.
York will host a first weekend set of games. On Saturday, Cabrini and Washington & Lee will square off at Kinsley Field. The winner of that game will then face the Spartans in the second round game on Sunday in York.
The Spartans finished second in the CAC regular season with an overall record of 13-4 and 7-1 in the CAC. All seven of York's NCAA Tournament appearances have been at-large bids.
The Spartans played seven teams that are in the field during their 2018 season. York went 4-4 in their eight games against the seven tournament teams.
The winner of the York pod advances to face the winner of the Rowan pod. The Profs host the winner of the Catholic and Johnson & Wales first round game in Glassboro on Sunday.
York owns an all-time NCAA tournament record of 6-6 with two trips to the Elite Eight (2015 and 2017). York is 4-0 at Kinsley Field in the NCAA Tournament.
Spartan head coach Jen Muston is happy to see her squad rewarded with an at-large berth.
"The team feels energized and excited about this NCAA bid and getting another chance to compete with one another," said Muston. "We have a sense of unfinished business for this season so we appreciate the opportunity to get a second chance at something great. We want to take full advantage of that opportunity. This berth is for our seniors."
