Women's Soccer Reaches Second Round of NCAA Tournament

Women's Soccer Reaches Second Round of NCAA Tournament

The women’s soccer team enjoyed an outstanding campaign this past fall, posting a 16-2-3 overall record and advancing to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. It was the team’s third straight bid to the national tournament as an at-large selection, after finishing this year as the Landmark Conference runner-up. The team was ranked 25th in the nation in the final United Soccer Coaches (USC) top-25 poll.

The awards quickly piled up for Scranton following the season, highlighted by USC Second Team All-American honors for junior defender Rebecca Russo. Among other honors, Russo was the first Royals women’s soccer player to earn All-American honors since 2010, and became just the 13th player in program history and 67th Scranton student-athlete in any sport to achieve All-American status. She was also one of a record-setting five Royals to earn USC All-Mid-Atlantic Region honors.

Additionally, head coach Colleen Pivirotto was named the Landmark Conference Coach of the Year for the fourth time in her coaching career at Scranton.
