Women's Volleyball, Women's Soccer Set For NEAC Playoffs

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. – With their regular seasons now complete, Penn State Harrisburg's women's volleyball and women's soccer teams will continue competition in this week's North Eastern Athletic Conference (NEAC) Tournaments.


Thanks to a four-set victory at Lancaster Bible on Saturday afternoon, women's volleyball earned the No. 2 seed and secured a first-round bye in the upcoming postseason tournament. Top-seeded Morrisville State clinched the league's regular season championship and will play host to the semifinal and championship rounds.


Joining the Lions (15-13, 8-3 NEAC) and Mustangs (21-6, 11-0 NEAC) in the tourney will be No. 3 Penn State Abington (16-15, 8-3 NEAC), No. 4 Lancaster Bible (16-15, 7-4 NEAC), No. 5 Penn State Berks (15-14, 7-4 NEAC) and No. 6 Gallaudet (11-23, 7-4 NEAC).


First-round action begins on Tuesday evening, Nov. 5, and includes Abington hosting Gallaudet and LBC playing host to Berks. Penn State Harrisburg gets the winner of the Penn State Abington/Gallaudet matchup on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 9 in one of two semifinal contests. The championship match is set for Sunday, Nov. 10.


With a 5-2 win over SUNY Poly on Friday afternoon, Nov. 1, women' soccer (9-9-1, 7-2-1 NEAC) wrapped up the No. 3 seed in the league's postseason tournament and earned a home playoff game in the process. Penn State Berks (13-6, 11-0 NEAC) finished the fall undefeated in NEAC play, clinching the regular season title and top seed.


Both sets of Lions will be joined by No. 2 Keuka (13-4, 10-1 NEAC), No. 4 Penn College (9-8-1, 8-3 NEAC), No. 5 SUNY Poly (7-8-1, 6-5 NEAC) and No. 6 Lancaster Bible (9-9, 5-6 NEAC).
