CWPA Releases 2010 Women's Collegiate Club Midwest Division Schedule
BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- The Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) has released the schedule of games for the 2010 Women's National Collegiate Club Midwest Division. Comprised of Notre Dame, Miami (Ohio), Ohio and Grand Valley State, the division champion will advance to the National Collegiate Club Championship at the University of Arizona in April.
Competition will begin on February 27-28 at Jenison High School in Jenison, Michigan as Grand Valley State will host the other three teams in an eight-team tournament.
The division race will wrap-up on April 10-11 at Notre Dame as the Fighting Irish will host four games on Saturday, April 10 to wrap-up the regular season and seed the championship set for Sunday, April 11.
On the 11th, the top team from the regular season will meet the No. 4 seed team, while the No. 2 seed meets No. 3 in the semifinals during the morning. The victors of the semifinals will meet in the afternoon for the title following a third place game between the two other teams in the division.
The champion and the runner-up in the division will both advance to the 2010 Women's National Collegiate Club Championship at the University of Arizona on April 23-25. The runner-up in the division will also advance to the championship due to Notre Dame finishing second at the 2009 National Collegiate Club Championship, providing the Midwest Division with two bids to this year's championship to complete the 16-team format.
