GRANVILLE, Ohio--  After racing through the regular season with a spotless 14-0 record in the North Coast Athletic Conference, Denison field hockey enters the NCAC Tournament as the No. 1 seed.

The Big Red will host fourth-seeded Wittenberg on Wednesday (Oct. 31) at 3 p.m. at Piper Stadium in the tournament semifinal round.  In the other semifinal, No. 2 Wooster will host No. 3 Kenyon at 3 p.m.

In two prior meetings against Wittenberg, Denison posted a pair of one-goal victories.  On Sept. 26 in Springfield, Charlotte Happel's goal in the first half was enough to send the Big Red to a 1-0 win.

On Oct. 16 in Granville, goals from Happel and Charlotte Godfrey was enough for a 2-1 Denison win.

This is the 10th consecutive NCAC Tournament appearance for Denison and the program's 14th overall.  They are the defending conference tournament champions after defeating Wittenberg, 2-1 in last year's title game. Senior All-American Lucy Pearsall (seven goals) leads the team in scoring and Godfrey leads the team in points (18).  The defense, led by sophomore All-American Michelle Kabaira has allowed only 11 goals in 18 matches this season.

Denison is currently 16-2 and ranked in the others receiving votes section of the NFCA Division III Top-25 poll.  Over the last two seasons, Denison has gone 33-6 (.846). They have won 27 consecutive conference games which is an NCAC record.

Ticket prices are $7 for adults and $3 for children (18 and under).  Students with a valid NCAC institution ID, as well as the first 50 members of the Denison faculty or staff, are admitted free of charge.  A live video stream will be provided by the Denison Sports Network beginning at 2:45 p.m.
