Skidmore (18-1) is seeded fourth in the 24-team event and will play the winner of Wednesday's first-round match-up of Gwynedd-Mercy (16-4) and Amherst (13-3) on Saturday, Nov. 12, at 10 a.m. The other half of the Skidmore Regional features the winner of Franklin & Marshall (16-3) vs. Cortland (12-6) playing Middlebury (14-3) at 1 p.m. The regional championship is at 1 p.m. on Nov. 13.

Middlebury is the only team to defeat the Thoroughbreds this season.

Bowdoin is the defending NCAA Division III champion and the 2011 top seed. The Polar Bears will host a regional along with The College of New Jersey and Salisbury.

Skidmore will be playing in its fifth straight and 11th overall NCAA tournament. The Thoroughbreds advanced to the 2010 NCAA Final Four.
