Virginia is making its 23rd consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance and its 29th overall. Only North Carolina and Notre Dame have longer active streaks of tournament appearances. Last year, Virginia advanced to the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament and played Rutgers to a draw. The Knights won the penalty kick shootout, ending the Cavaliers' season.
This season, Virginia holds a 13-4-2 record entering the NCAA Tournament and is undefeated at home, posting a 10-0-1 mark at Klöckner Stadium. The Cavaliers' four losses all came on the road, with three of them to teams who have been ranked in the top five at some point in the 2016 season.
The Cavaliers boast five All-ACC players on this year's squad, including senior Alexis Shaffer (Cary, N.C.) who was named ACC Offensive Player of the Year and Midfielder of the Year. The Cavaliers have been stout defensively with senior goalkeeper Morgan Stearns (San Antonio, Texas) and a back line that posted 10 shutout victories and allowed only 15 goals this season.
Shaffer is the top goal scorer on the team with 11 goals and an additional six assists, while junior Veronica Latsko (Venetia, Pa.) has added eight goals and freshman Taylor Ziemer (Santa Rosa, Calif.) tallied seven goal.
Monmouth claimed the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference Championship this season, posting a 5-2 win over Quinnipiac in the finals to secure the win. The Hawks went 9-0-1 in conference play, led by Madie Gibson with 12 goals and Rachelle Ross with 10 goals. Alexis McTamney was the top ball distributor with 10 assists on the season.
In goal, Amanda Knaub posted nine solo shutouts and allowed only eight goals on the season.
The Hawks are 11-0-1 in their last 12 matches played this season.
