BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Bowdoin College men's soccer team (13-2-2) has qualified for the NCAA Tournament and earned a first-round bye in selections announced on Sunday night. The Polar Bears will play in a regional hosted by St. Lawrence University and will face the winner of Wednesday's Wheaton (Mass.) and CCNY contest.
The two second-round contests will be played on Saturday, November 15 at 1:30, with the winners meeting on Sunday at 1:00.
Bowdoin earned an at-large berth to the tournament thanks to a 13-2-2 regular season mark and a runner-up finish in the NESCAC Tournament. The Polar Bears have twice reached the NCAA Tournament, in both 1997 and 1998.
