WVU Men’s Soccer Earns 11-Seed in NCAA Tournament



MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Selection Sunday proved successful for head coach Dan Stratford’s WVU Men’s Soccer Team.

The Mountain State remains a Soccer State, as both WVU and defending national champion Marshall received national seedings (No. 11 and No. 14, respectively) and first round BYEs.

Even after a 1-0 loss to Georgia State in the MAC semi-finals, West Virginia (11-3-4) is continuing the post-season fight. This is the 15th time in program history that Men’s Soccer has reached the NCAA Tournament and the first under Stratford. The MAC also found Akron, Bowling Green, Georgia State, and Northern Illinois among the 48 selections.

In 2019, head coach Marlon LeBlanc lead the team to the second round of the tournament with a 5-1 win over Butler, but fell at the hands of the Thundering Herd 2-1 in Huntington, W.Va.

Now, Sunday will welcome the NCAA Tournament to Dick Dlesk Soccer Stadium for the first time since the first round of 2018. The Mountaineers will host either the Virginia Tech Hokies (10-5-3) or the Campbell Camels (15-3-2) at 1 p.m. on Nov. 21.
