Harvard, Trinity, Princeton, and Columbia earned the top-four seeds while Yale, Drexel, Virginia and Pennsylvania round out the rest of the field.


“With our qualification for the Howe Cup, this team has already guaranteed its highest ever end-of-season national ranking; one that will be somewhere inside the top 8. We won’t be going just to make up the numbers, as I believe this group of women are tough, gritty competitors and on their day, they can beat anyone.
