Ithaca College Woman's Soccer Team in Final Four

The Ithaca College women’s soccer team is in the Division III Final Four! The semifinals take place today at San Antonio's Blossom Soccer Stadium. I have no idea whether the stadium is named after the popular 90s sitcom. Anyway, here's everything you need to know about today's game.

Ithaca (15-3-3) will face Wheaton [Ill.]. who is 21-1-1 on the season at 2:30 p.m. Eastern time in the second semifinal with Messiah (21-0-1) meeting William Smith (20-0-1) Friday at noon in the other. Friday's winners will play Saturday at 2:30 p.m. for the national championship. [Ithaca College Athletics]

An excellent (and perhaps only?) preview of the Ithaca-Wheaton game. []

This is a video of the soccer team leaving campus for San Antonio. It appears that they took a bus which, according to Google Maps is 1,774 miles! [YNN News]

The team is well rested for the game. Since this is the case, perhaps they took an airplane to San Antonio. [Ithaca Journal]

Junior forward Rachael Palladino thoughts on the Final Four run: "When we got a bid, we didn’t really have any expectations besides the fact that we wanted to prove to ourselves that we were way better than the last game we played before the tournament." [The Ithacan]

Go Bombers!
