CSU soccer team gets top seed in NCAA D-II Tournament

The Columbus State women’s soccer team is headed to the NCAA Tournament as a top seed.

After capturing the Peach Belt Conference Tournament Championship over the weekend, the Cougars are the number one seed in the Southeast Region in the upcoming NCAA Tournament. It’s the 11th straight season they’ll be playing in the Tournament.

After coming up short a year ago, the Lady Cougars are determined to make it back to that Championship game.

"Everyone in the back of their minds thinks of last year and that’s kind of what pushes us to wanna do better and wanna get to that game," said senior Nicole Corcione. "This year we wanna win it."

"No one wants to feel that feeling again and the freshman who came on, they know and they watched and they know how it felt, they were here in pre-season when we talked about it," said senior Taylor Marks. "We don’t want to feel that way again and no one wants to lose. We’re ready to go all the way this time."

The Lady Cougars will receive a bye in the opening round and host the winner of the first round game between fourth-seeded Armstrong State and fifth-seeded Lenoir-Rhyne. Game time is set for Sunday, November 13th at 1 p.m.
