Clemson earns NCAA Bid, hosts Alabama in first round

The Clemson women’s soccer team received a bid to play in the 2017 NCAA Tournament, as announced by the NCAA on Monday.

The Tigers host Alabama in the first round of the tournament on Friday at 7 p.m., at Historic Riggs Field.

This is Clemson’s fourth straight NCAA Tournament berth under seventh-year head coach Eddie Radwanski. It is the third consecutive year that the Tigers have hosted a first-round contest.

It is the program’s 18th all-time appearance in the NCAA Tournament, and Clemson has a 11-14-9 record in the national tournament all-time.

The Tigers are 9-5-3 overall this year and finished ninth in the ACC. Two Clemson players, Sam Staab (second team) and Mariana Speckmaier (freshman team) earned All-ACC honors for the 2017 season.

As a team, the Tigers rank in the top 50 nationally in two defensive statistical categories, including 35th in shutout percentage (.529) and 41st in goals-against average (.730).

Alabama is 12-7-1 on the season, having fallen 3-1 to Missouri in the first round of the SEC tournament on Oct. 29.
