The Swarthmore women's soccer team captured its third consecutive ECAC South Region Championship, while the men's soccer team has advanced to the NCAA Division III Sweet 16 for the second consecutive year.

The women's soccer team defeated Penn State-Behrend 1-0 on a goal by Kirsten Peterson '11 to claim the ECAC South Region title for the third year in a row. Only one other college has ever accomplished this feat.

The men's soccer team defeated Hobart 2-1 at Clothier Field Stadium thanks to a late-game goal from Philippe Celestin '11. The Garnet will face Transylvania next weekend in the Sweet 16 bracket.
