Fredonia women's lacrosse will play in the NCAA Division III Tournament again this year. Runners-up in the SUNYAC, the Blue Devils (15-3) will be making their third appearance in four years, and once again will receive a home game.

They will play Sunday, May 10, at University Stadium against the Denison Big Red (11-6), champs of the North Coast Athletic Conference. Game time is 11 a.m.

The Blue Devils gathered in Dods Hall on Sunday night to watch the selection show live on Fredonia was the fourth to last team to be announced. The loud cheer went up among the players. "It's exciting to make the tourney," senior midfielder Katie Kleine (Cazenovia, N.Y./Cazenovia) said, "and to have one more crack as a senior,"

Her sentiments were echoed by two other seniors, attacker Katie Glagolev (Webster, N.Y. / Webster Thomas) and defender Shelby DePew (Macedon, N.Y. / Palmyra-Macedon). "It's great to be in the tournament three of four years," Glagolev said. "I'm happy to be going back as a senior." "I'm excited to get a chance to play in the tourney again," said DePew, who missed last year's game with a season-ending injury.

The Blue Devils are 1-2 in three previous NCAA appearances. They lost to St. John Fisher in 2012. They missed out in 2013 yet returned last year and defeated RPI, 9-8, on a goal by Juliana Kotas (Lancaster, N.Y. / Lancaster) with 3.3 seconds remaining.

Moving on to the Gettysburg Region, the Blue Devils were then ousted by eventual national finalist Trinity (Conn.).

Salisbury defeated Trinity in last year's national title game.
