The Chapman men's soccer team is set to begin play in the 2018 NCAA Division III Championship as the Panthers will represent the Southern California Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (SCIAC) in the national postseason tournament.
Chapman enters national postseason play with an 11-7-1 overall record and is fresh off the program's first SCIAC Postseason Tournament victory. The Panthers were the fourth seed in the SCIAC tournament and advanced past top-seeded Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (CMS), 5-4 on penalty kicks after playing to a 0-0 double-overtime draw. Chapman then went on to defeat third-seeded Occidental, 1-0 to win the conference tournament title.
The Panthers will take on Trinity (Texas) - the four-team pod host - which also features Southwestern (Texas) and Mary Hardin-Baylor with action set to begin Friday, November 9.
