After winning the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) Championship and earning the conference's automatic-qualification to the NCAA Division III National Championship, Norwich University's women's hockey program will be aiming for their sixth semifinal appearance in program history.
The NCAA announced the field of eight on Monday morning and Norwich will be traveling to Middlebury College for first round action on Saturday, March 11 for a 3:00 pm puck drop. The winner will advance to the Division III Women's Frozen Four on the weekend of March 17 at the campus of the highest remaining seed from the western region.
This pairing sets up a rematch from the regular season in which the Panthers defeated the Cadets 5-3. Norwich however has the edge in the all-time series between the two in-state foes at 6-3-1.
