Mountaineers Travel to Navy Tournament

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – The Mountaineers (3-0) travel to Annapolis, Maryland, for a two-day tournament from Sept. 3-4, at the Wesley A. Brown Field House. WVU opens play against No. 23 Michigan (2-0) on Friday, Sept. 3, at noon ET. The squad will go up against host Navy (3-1) on Saturday, Sept. 4, at 7:30 p.m.
 
“We have a tough weekend ahead of us,” said coach Reed Sunahara. “We have Michigan and Navy. Michigan is now ranked, and they beat two really good teams. Navy is playing well. It will really tell us where we are at this point in the year.”

The Mountaineers and Wolverines will meet for the third time in program history on Friday. In their last meeting, West Virginia fell to Michigan, on Aug. 29, 2015, at the Michigan Invitational. Of note, WVU and U-M are tied with one game apiece all-time in the series. 

 

After a match up at the 2019 Mountaineer Invitational, WVU will face host Navy for the fifth time in program history on Saturday evening. The Mountaineers hold a 4-0 series record over the Mids. In its last meeting, WVU took a 3-2 win.
