CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Virginia field hockey team hosts Princeton on Sunday, Nov. 11 at 2 p.m. in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The winner will advance to the NCAA Semifinals which will be played next Friday in Norfolk, Va. at Old Dominion University.
All seats at Turf Field for the games will be general admission with adult tickets priced at $5 and Student/Youth tickets priced at $3. The ticket office and stadium gates both open at 1 p.m.
Day-of-game sales will be cash or check only. No credit card transactions can be processed at the onsite ticket office. The ticket office and gates to the field open one hour prior to the start of the first game each day.
There will also be a $5 parking fee for those parking in the Cage Lot. Free parking will be available in the UHall, John Paul Jones Arena, and McCue lots. Note: Anyone parking in the JPJA surface lot or garage will need to vacate by 4 p.m. because of the Charlottesville 250th Anniversary event.
This is the 18th trip to the NCAA Tournament for the Cavaliers and their sixth in head coach Michele Madison's seven seasons at Virginia.
This is the fourth time that the opening rounds of the NCAA Tournament will be played in Charlottesville. The Cavaliers, with yesterday's 3-2 victory over Iowa, are 6-0 in NCAA Tournament games played on their home turf, each time advancing to the NCAA semifinals after hosting opening rounds. They defeated Princeton, 4-2, in Charlottesville in 2010 in the second round to advance to the semifinals.
The Cavaliers have made four trips to the NCAA Semifinals (1997, 1998, 2009, 2010), but are still looking for their first National Championship Game appearance. The Virginia/Princeton all-time series is knotted at 2-2 with the Tigers winning 2-1 in Charlottesville on Oct. 28.
Virginia won nine consecutive games at Turf Field this season before falling to Princeton in the regular-season finale. UVa has outscored opponents 59-15 at home this season with four shutouts.
Paige Selenski is closing in on another Virginia and ACC record, the career goals mark. After scoring her 100th goal on Saturday, Selenski needs one goal to tie Virginia alum Meredith Thorpe (1995-98) for the career mark. Thorpe and Selenski are the only players in ACC history to score 100 goals in their careers. Selenski was just the 10th player in NCAA history (and the second this season) to reach the 100 career goal mark.
