On Thursday, the No. 12-ranked Vikings, now 28-2 overall and riding a 13-game win streak, will open their appearance in the NCAA Division III National Championships in St. Louis, Mo., when they square off against No. 3 Claremont-Mudd-Scripps (30-1) at 6:30 p.m., in the Elite 8 quarterfinals.

The CMS Athenas are the No. 2 seed for the national tournament hosted by Washington University, while Berry is seeded No. 7.

The Vikings earned a berth in the nationals on Saturday when Berry swept past Emory 3-0 in the regional championship. Berry advanced to the final defeating Transylvania 3-0 and Southwestern 3-1. Senior libero Laura Beier was named the tournament’s Most Valuable Player and teammates Molly Bergin and Jazzy Innis joined her on the All-Tournament team.

The three players and two more Vikings were previously selected as First Team All-Region standouts – Beier was the Region Player of the Year – with Emily Rapach and Peyton Breissinger being honored, while head coach Caitlyn Moriarty was named the Region Coach of the Year.

Claremont, which won the 2017 National Championship, advanced to this year’s NCAA national tourney when the Athenas beat previously unbeaten Wartburg 3-2 in their regional final Sunday.

The winner of the Berry-Claremont showdown will meet the Trinity-Calvin winner in the semifinals Friday at 8:30 p.m. The championship match is scheduled for Saturday at 8 p.m.
