RALEIGH, N.C. -- The top-seed Meredith College lacrosse team heads to the program's sixth USA South Conference Tournament semifinal Friday, April 26. The Avenging Angels will face the winner of Tuesday's first round pairing between fourth-seed William Peace and fifth-seed Methodist.
Second-seed Averett also received a first-round bye and will meet the winner between Piedmont and Greensboro. Both semifinal contests will be played Friday in LaGrange, Georgia, at the Callaway Stadium as part of the USA South Spring Sports Festival. The winners will advance to Saturday's championship game the following day at 1 p.m.
Meredith and Piedmont have met each of the last five year's in the title match, but the Lions must get through the Pride to advance this spring. Averett's second-year program and the first-year Pacer women's lacrosse squad are both positioned to do well.
