BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- The Collegiate Water Polo Association (CWPA) releases a revised 2017 Women's National Collegiate Club Mid-Atlantic Division schedule of games at Carnegie Mellon University's Cohon University Center in Pittsburgh, Pa., on Saturday-Sunday, March 25-26.
The change occurs as Ohio University forfeits to West Chester University, Carnegie Mellon, Pennsylvania State University and the University of Pittsburgh due to multiple challenges that will prevent the Bobcats from making the trip to Pittsburgh. The four games are recorded as forfeits in favor of the Rams, Tartans, Nittany Lions and Panthers as Ohio completes the Mid-Atlantic Division regular season and will enter the division championship tournament on Saturday-Sunday, April 8-9, at West Chester's Graham Natatorium with an 0-8 mark to rate as the No. 6 seed in the six-team field.
Due to the forfeits, and to guarantee each team receives four games on the weekend, two exhibition games are added to the slate at Carnegie Mellon with the host Tartans facing West Chester (5:00 p.m., March 25) and Pittsburgh clashing with Penn State (8:30 a.m., March 26).
Game times are adjusted to accommodate these changes. Fans and participating teams should note that due to time constraints on March 26, teams will receive one two-minute timeout per half and a 30-second timeout to be used at any time during the game. Quarter breaks and halftime will be two minutes.
