Their upset last November spawned another upset this spring.
Central Connecticut’s 2019 women’s soccer team successfully made its way through the NCAA Tournament-style #NortheastMadness Bracket (presented by Nexxt), winning the vote for “Top Postseason Performance Since 2000.”
The Blue Devils, who posted a road victory at Big Ten member Rutgers in the 2019 NCAA Women’s College Cup, pulled in 52.2 percent of the Twitter vote to edged out Fairleigh Dickinson’s men’s soccer program and its 2001 College Cup Elite 8 run. FDU led the polls for much of the voting period, but CCSU surged ahead with about two hours remaining and never looked back.
CCSU began #NortheastMadness as a No. 3 seed in the Danielle McEwan Region of the 16-team bracket. Its path to the #NortheastMadness Final Four included a victory over the 2010 NCAA Bowling Champions.
