LA GRANDE, Ore. – The Eastern Oregon University women’s soccer team clinched the top seed in the 2018 CCC Women’s Soccer Championship presented by U.S. Bank, which is set to begin Nov. 7.

Eastern finished the year 13-1-2 overall, and 9-1-2 in conference play and shares the regular season title with Carroll College (10-6-2, 9-1-2 CCC). By virtue of the second tiebreaker criteria of fewest goals allowed during conference play, the Mountaineers receive the No. 1 seed and the first of two automatic qualifiers to the NAIA National Tournament. Carroll enters the tournament as the No. 2 seed.

Rounding out the top five of the seeding are No. 3 Oregon Tech (11-4-2, 8-3-1 CCC), No. 4 Southern Oregon University (9-4-3, 7-3-2 CCC) and No. 5 Northwest University (8-8-2, 7-3-2 CCC). Southern earned the tiebreaker over Northwest also using the second criteria of fewest goals allowed in CCC play.

The College of Idaho earned the sixth seed followed by Rocky Mountain College in seventh. COI defeated RMC during the regular season to win the tiebreaker. Corban University earned the eighth and final spot.

Tournament festivities will begin with a student-athlete banquet on Nov. 6 where all-conference awards will be announced. Games will get underway the following morning on Nov. 7. The tournament will again be held at Willamalane Sports Complex in Springfield, Ore. and hosted by Northwest Christian University.

Providence earned the fifth seed followed by The Evergreen State College at sixth, Carroll College in seventh and Oregon Tech the eighth and final spot.
