The 14th-ranked ONU women’s soccer team will be competing in the first round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday morning, when they will host Penn St.-Behrend at 11:30 a.m.

It will mark the program’s first trip to the national tournament in five years and the first time that they have hosted the first two rounds of the tournament since 2011.

The Polar Bears are coming off of a 17-1-2 regular season, with their only loss coming in their first game, on Sept. 1. They were an automatic qualifier for the NCAA Tournament after winning the OAC regular season and tournament titles for the first time in school history.
