PHOENIX (Tuesday, April 27th, 2021) -- The NCAA DI Women's Soccer Tournament kicks off on Tuesday and 24 former Arizona Soccer Association players will be in action.
The number of players participating is quite impressive considering that the women's field was cut to 48 teams from 64. The 2019 NCAA Women's Tournament featured 32 players, 2018 featured 21 players and 2017 saw 24 players in action.
Arizona State University is the lone Arizona program to advance to this year's tournament and Colorado is led by Arizona coaches Danny Sanchez and Jason Green.
Editor's note - Hello all, Garrett Cleverly here. After going through 48 rosters there might be a chance that I missed a player due to how the college programs list their rosters. If so, please reach out to me.
