"We're thrilled to be in the NCAA Tournament and we're looking forward to heading south," head coach Katherine Vettori said. "It's a special situation for me to be able to go back and play at my alma mater. We look forward to playing a great team that was in the national championship game last year and at such a beautiful facility."


The match-up with the Blue Devils (12-5-2) will be the first time the two programs have faced in women's soccer.
