W&J women in D-III soccer tournament

The Washington & Jefferson College women's soccer team will be making its second consecutive trip to the NCAA Division III tournament after earning the Presidents' Athletic Conference's automatic berth.

The Presidents (12-6-2) will travel to Grand Rapids, Mich., Friday for a 1:30 p.m. contest against the Calvin College Knights (13-4-1).

Ohio Northern (15-4-1) takes on Wittenberg (11-4-5) in the other opening-round contest at the Calvin four-team pod at 11:00 a.m. Friday. The first-round winners will meet in a second-round match Saturday afternoon.

W&J won the PAC championship Saturday by defeating host Grove City, 1-0, on a second-half goal by Chrissy Marcius (pictured).

Calvin received one of 21 at-large (Pool C) bids to the tournament. The Knights will be making their fifth consecutive trip to the postseason. Calvin lost in a penalty-kicks shootout last week in the MIAA tournament semifinals to Kalamazoo.
