Women's Soccer in NCAA Tournament Lineup
This is the 10th time the Gorlok Women’s Soccer team has appeared in the NCAA D III national tournament.
ST. LOUIS - The Women’s soccer team will face off against Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill this Friday for the first round of the NCAA Division III Tournament.
This is the 10th time the Gorlok Women’s Soccer team has appeared in the NCAA D III national tournament,
and this year is their second consecutive appearance. The soccer team has captured
six SLIAC tournament championships, all of which have come in the last nine years.
Webster’s Women’s Soccer Team has tallied 89 goals this season (4.24 per game) while conceding 12 goals (0.57 per game). Entering the SLIAC tournament, the Gorloks had the sixth-highest scoring offense and the 32nd-best goals-against average nationally in NCAA Division III. They earned the NCAA berth with a 4-1 defeat of Principia College Saturday afternoon (Nov. 9).
Webster's .905 won-loss-tied percentage is one of the top-10 percentages in Division III this season and the second-highest percentage in program history, behind only the 2001 team that went 18-1-1 (.925 won-loss-tied percentage). The Gorloks (19-2 overall, 9-0 SLIAC) set a program record for wins in a season, as they surpassed the 18-win '01 squad.
