Cal women's soccer gets first NCAA berth

The California University women’s soccer team received an at-large bid Monday to the NCAA Division II Championships. It is the first NCAA tournament berth for the Vulcans.

California will play West Virginia Wesleyan in a first-round game Friday in Kutztown. The starting time has not been determined. Kutztown earned an opening-round bye and will host the winner of the Cal-WVW game on Sunday.

Under third-year head coach Al Alvine, Cal established a program record with 16 wins, earned its first PSAC West title and made its first-ever appearance in the PSAC tournament.

West Virginia Wesleyan (12-6-1) earned an automatic berth to the 48-team tournament by winning the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference tournament. The Bobcats won their third third-straight WVIAC title.
