Women’s College Cup Notes:

  • BYU scored three goals in the final 10 minutes of regulation over North Carolina – the most successful team in women’s college soccer – in the quarterfinals in a thrilling 4-3 comeback victory to claim its second Women’s College Cup trip in three seasons. Led by midfielder Bella Folino, BYU is seeking its first NCAA Division 1 Women’s College Cup title after losing in the title match in 2021.
  • Clemson Women’s soccer team earned its first-ever trip to the College Cup with a 2-1 victory over Penn State in the quarterfinals last Saturday. Led by Makenna Morris and head coach Eddie Radwanski, who has taken the Tigers to 10 consecutive NCAA Tournaments, Clemson is one of two teams seeking their first Women’s College Cup championship.
  • Florida State is the most successful NCAA Division 1 Women’s Soccer team in the past decade, having won three College Cup titles in 2014, 2018, and 2021. Led by midfielder Taylor Huff and forward Lauryn Flynn, the Seminoles finished atop the Women’s Soccer standings, and the players are poised for the team’s second title in three seasons.
  • Stanford Women won its third and last College Cup in 2019. Three players on the current team – defender Elise Evans, forward Maya Doms, and midfielder Jasmine Ackey – are ranked in the top 25 of Top-Drawer Soccer Player Rankings.
