WSU soccer

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Virginia - Washington State women’s soccer has advanced to the Elite Eight for the first time in program history.

The Cougars knocked off West Virginia 3-0 in the round of 16 on Sunday behind two second-half goals from senior Morgan Weaver, her ninth multi-goal game of her career, second most in program history.

“We came here to win,” said fifth-year head coach Todd Shulenberger after the game. “We’re a different style, we’re a unique style, we’re a fun style. This is what we put this team together for, for a run like this.”

WSU will face second-seeded South Carolina in Columbus on Friday. 

The Cougars 2019 tournament appearance is the team’s third straight, and eighth trip in the past nine years.

WSU beat Memphis to open the tournament before upsetting No. 1 seed Virginia 3-2 in the second round to reach the round of 16 for just the second time in program history.
