The Mercer University women’s soccer team will play No. 8 University of Florida in the NCAA Tournament in Gainesville, Fl.

After third-seeded Mercer beat top-seeded Samford University by 2-1 on Sunday, the team automatically earned a bid in the NCAA tournament.

The victory was even sweeter considering the team lost against Samford in their last season game.

“It’s the perfect revenge,” senior Stephanie Giangiuli said, one of the team’s seven starting seniors.

The Bears won an automatic bid in the NCAA tournament in 2010 and lost against University of Florida. The seniors have made it their goal to make it to back to the NCAA Tournament, Giangiuli said.

“I think the determination that the senior class has [is what sets them apart from competitors],” said Sara Elliot, a graduate assistant for the team and former soccer player. “Everyone wanted it so badly for these girls, and they wanted it so badly for themselves.”

The soccer team had a 14-5-2 record this season, setting a new program record for the most wins in a season.
