ATLANTA – With the regular season slate concluded, the Piedmont women’s soccer team has earned the No. 4 seed for the upcoming Collegiate Conference of the South Tournament, beginning this week.

The Lions finished the regular season with a 5-2-1 conference record, placing behind the only three teams they did not defeat in the regular season, Belhaven, Maryville and Covenant.

Piedmont has still not lost a CCS game at home over its two years in the CCS and will have the opportunity to host No. 5 seed LaGrange at the Walker Athletic Complex this Saturday, Oct. 28.

The game time has not been announced.


Piedmont’s bid to repeat as conference champs will have to go through the Maryville Scots, who earned the No. 1 seed in the tournament after a 7-0-1 regular season while Belhaven took the No. 2 seed, going 7-1 in conference play. The Covenant Scots are the No. 3 seed after finishing 5-1-2 in the regular season, including a 0-0 tie against the Lions.

The Saturday winners will then move on to play the tournament’s top four seeds on Wednesday, Nov. 1, in the semifinals.

The winners of both semifinal games will advance to the championship game on Saturday, Nov. 4.
