HASTINGS, Neb. (KSNB) - The Hastings College women's soccer team (16-4) is playing in the NAIA National Tournament for the seventh straight season.
After falling to Midland University in the GPAC final, the Broncos have to travel to Indianapolis for a play-in game against William Woods (12-8). The match-up made Hastings College feel slighted and gave them a "chip on their shoulders," heading into the match-up.
The Broncos are under new leadership with Alex Piekarski taking over for Chris Clement who coached the team for five seasons.
The last four seasons, Hastings College has been bounced in the first round of the tournament, which leaves the team to believe they have "unfinished business" on the national stage.
"With Nationals we have more things to prove. We've continually proven what we can do this season," Senior Midfielder, Emmy Henely said. "I think going down to the final site again and going further is another thing we're trying to prove, unfinished business from last year down in Alabama just seeing how much further we can go and how much we can push ourselves. "
Broncos and William Woods play each other Nov. 22 in Indiana. Match is set to start at 1 p.m. CT. If they win they would have to play 12th-ranked Marian the next day, Nov. 23.
