Tigers Earn No. 2 Seed, Host Furman in NCAA First Round

CLEMSON, S.C. – The sixth-ranked Clemson women’s soccer team is one of the top eight overall seeds for the 2015 NCAA Tournament, the No. 2 seed in its region, as announced by the NCAA on Monday afternoon. The Tigers will host SoCon champion Furman in the first round on Saturday, Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. at Historic Riggs Field.

This is the Tigers’ second consecutive NCAA Tournament bid under Head Coach Eddie Radwanski, who is in his fifth season at Clemson. Last season, Radwanski and his staff led the program to its first NCAA Tournament berth since 2007. This is the first time since 2006 that the Tigers have hosted an NCAA Tournament game. It is the 16th all-time NCAA Tournament appearance for the program.

Clemson is 13-4-1 overall and finished tied for second in the ACC regular season standings. The Tigers fell to top-ranked Virginia in the semifinal round of the ACC Tournament on Friday in Cary, N.C. Catrina Atanda leads a group of four Tigers in double-figures in scoring, with 13 points on five goals and three assists. Kailen Sheridan has 56 saves and six solo shutouts on the year. Last week, she earned her second-straight First-Team All-ACC honor, the third overall all-conference honor of her career.

Furman, who defeated Mercer in the SoCon Championship game by a score of 1-0 in double overtime last weekend, is 17-4-1, and 5-3 in road matches. The Paladins are led by Stephanie DeVita, who has 40 points on 18 goals and four assists on the season. The 18 goals put her in a tie for fourth in the nation.

Ticket information will be available on ClemsonTigers.com, and @ClemsonWSoccer on Twitter, on Tuesday, Nov. 10.
