Two outstanding Eagles teams were headed to NCAA tournaments that began just as UMW Magazine went to press.

Capping a season in which it was consistently ranked in the Top 25 Division III teams nationwide, men’s soccer won the Capital Athletic Conference (CAC) championship and received an automatic NCAA bid.

The Eagles posted a 17-2-1 season record on the strength of dominant all-around team play and exceptional goalkeeping. The men were to travel to Lancaster, Pennsylvania, for a first-round game against Eastern University on Nov. 10.

Eagles volleyball gained an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament, thanks to a 20-11 record against one of the strongest schedules in the nation. The Eagles were to travel to Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, to face former CAC foe Marymount University on Nov. 9.

In volleyball, Savannah Powers ’20 earned CAC Player of the Year honors. In men’s soccer, Justin Carey ’19 was CAC Player of the Year and Jason Kilby was CAC Coach of the Year.
