CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - The Virginia women's lacrosse team (10-8) earned the No. 6 seed in the 2014 NCAA Women's Lacrosse Championship and will be hosting first and second round games on Friday, May 9 and Sunday, May 11, at Klöckner Stadium after earning an at-large bid in the 26-team field.
Penn State (10-7) and Princeton (11-6) will get the action started on Friday, May 9 with a game starting at 4 p.m. The Cavaliers, who earned a first-round bye as one of the top-six seeded teams in the tournament, will take on the winner on Sunday, May 11 at 4 p.m. The winner of Sunday's game will advance to play the winner of the first and second round games being contested in Chapel Hill, N.C. in a quarterfinal match-up on May 17 at a location to be determined.
"We are really excited that we earned a six-seed," said Virginia head coach Julie Myers. "This is a testament to a lot of hard work throughout the course of the season. We rolled with the lumps when we got them this year, but we picked up momentum towards the end. We are excited to be at home, excited to have a bye on Friday night and are really looking forward to making this tournament last as long as possible."
