The national title is on the line!
The ACHA Women's Championship, going on now in Ashburn, VA, will give eight university teams (4 East, 4 West) a chance to call themselves champion.
The DVCHC's own West Chester University (#1), California University of Pennsylvania (#2) and University of Delaware (#3) join Penn State in representing the country's best D2 teams in the East.
In February these teams met as competitors, doing battle for the DVCHC crown. This week they fight on the same side, taking on the West through 9 games & pushing to be the first DVCHC team to take home gold. Once pool play is complete, a final bracket will be played through Saturday to the big Sunday showdown at 1:15pm.
If you're in the DC metro area, come out and support our squads!
YOU CAN DO THIS LADIES! BEST OF LUCK TO THE DVCHC THREE!

Cal kills a penalty to hold on, barely outshooting NDSU 30-27.
