Rutgers women’s soccer has already had a record-breaking season, the Scarlet Knights capturing the first Big Ten regular season title in program history. Now, that season continues on Friday at Yurcak Field against Bucknell in the opening round of the NCAA Tournament.

On Tuesday, Rutgers learned that it earned one of four No. 1 seeds for the tournament. The Scarlet Knights finished the season 17-3 after losing in the Big Ten Tournament championship game at home to Michigan.

Rutgers was rewarded with the top seed following a tremendous Big Ten season where they ran the table to go 10-0.

“It means a lot because from the first day of preseason, we would say what we chasing in our huddle,” sophomore midfielder Sara Brocious said. “And we would write on paper what we wanted to do and this was one of them so it was great to achieve it – it means a lot.”

The Scarlet Knights are fifth nationally in the United Soccer Coaches Poll that was released this week. They are the highest-ranked team from the Big Ten.

The top seed is the first time in program history that Rutgers has ever been one of the four-highest seeded teams in an NCAA Tournament.

“Definitely crazy, just continuing to make history with this team is amazing,” junior defender Allison Lynch said.

“Having the one seed is an unreal feeling and I’m looking forward to it.”
