The West Virginia University women's soccer team, ranked No. 7 nationally, will host second- and third-round NCAA Tournament matches this weekend in Morgantown. It's the first Omaha program, other than hockey, to advance to the NCAA Tournament.

Michigan State led the way with a No. 7 seed, while WMU and UM earned No. 10 and 13 seeds, respectively.

This is Clemson's fifth consecutive NCAA Tournament berth and fifth under head coach Mike Noonan, and it is the fourth consecutive year that the Tigers have earned a first round bye.

The Tigers are 12-5-1 overall in 2017 and finished in the top four in the ACC Tournament. Notre Dame has advanced to the NCAA Round of 16 on nine occasions, the national quarterfinals three times (2006-07, 2013), and claimed the national championship during the program's inaugural NCAA College Cup appearance in 2013.

Presbyterian, the Big South Conference champion, earned the automatic berth into the field after edging High Point in a penalty kick shootout in the title game on Sunday.
