SAN DIEGO, Calif. - The University of San Diego women's soccer team has learned it will travel to Irvine, Calif. for the first round of the NCAA Tournament to take on the UC Irvine Anteaters. The match is scheduled to begin on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and will be held at Anteaters Stadium.

"I am very excited about the challenge ahead," stated head coach Ada Greenwood. "We are looking forward to competing against a really good team in UC Irvine, and this should be a great game."

The Toreros enter the Tournament with an overall record of 11-7-0 after picking up a thrilling 3-0 upset win over No. 7 Santa Clara University this past Friday to claim a share of their first-ever West Coast Conference Championship. Senior striker Stephanie Ochs, who has scored a team-leading eight goals to go along with a team-best 11 assists for a team-leading 27 points, leads the Toreros' offensive attack. On the defensive side of things, senior goalkeeper Courtney Parsons, who has recorded six shutouts on the season and is bolstering a goals-against-average of 0.81, anchors USD's defense down. San Diego is under the direction of ninth-year head coach Ada Greenwood.

UC Irvine enters the tournament with an overall record of 14-4-2 after dropping 1-0 decision to Long Beach State in the championship match of the Big West Championships this past weekend. San Diego is 10-6-0 all-time against the Anteaters, but UCI did win this season's match-up 3-2 in San Diego. Natalia Ledezma, who has scored a team-best 12 goals to go along with eight assists for 32 points, paces the Irvine offense. Jennifer Randazzo, who has recorded six shutouts and is bolstering a 0.89 GAA, anchors down the Irvine defense.
