Trinity University are hunting their first women's championship in school history and come in to the tournament with the best record of either gender with 24 wins.
The Tigers are coming in off a phenomenal season, the best in program history and have easily the best goal difference of all eight teams with a +4.23 average goal difference.
Trinity made light work of their conference play, even more so than usual this year, going 12-0-0 in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference as they easily won they way through.
Despite being such a high quality side, and going in to the NCAA First Round as the No. 2 side in the country they were still forced to go on the road to Illinois Wesleyan for the first two rounds.
The tournament started well for Trinity as they managed a comfortable 3-1 win against Augustana in the opener in Illinois facing up against a second round against the hosts.
That match was tight with Trinity and Illinois Wesleyan fighting with Trinity forced to come from behind to get a 1-1 draw that lasted through extra-time.
That forced a penalty shootout and it was stunning goalkeeping from Devan Osegueda to win the game for the Tigers sending them through to the sectional that NCAA announced they would host.
That brought the difficult side of Montclair State to Paul McGinlay Field and a tough match saw Trinity jump out to a lead only for Montclair State to make things nervy for the Tigers who held on to advance to the quarter finals.
The match was tight but as time wore on Trinity started to assert their control and in the 72nd minute finally had their goal which saw them seal their ticket to the Final Four.
For the tournament Trinity will need to continue their high scoring ways and in a strike force of Emily Jorgens and Kelsey Falcone they have a lethal pairing that the other sides will struggle to contain, the pair having scored 39 goals this year.
