CARY, N.C. – The Atlantic Coast Conference announced on Monday, November 3 the pairings for the 21st ACC Women’s Soccer Championship at Wake Med Soccer Park in Cary, N.C. Florida State earned the No. 2 seed in this year’s tournament and will face seventh-seeded Virginia Tech in the first round on Wednesday, November 5 at 5:00 p.m.
