Late season losses didn't hurt Le Moyne (16-1) and Rollins (15-1), which earned the top seeds in the NCAA Division II women's lacrosse tournament despite losing their most recent games.

Both teams received byes into the semifinals of the six-team tournament, which will be held May 17 in Louisville, Ky.

Le Moyne, which fell to Adelphi in overtime of Sunday's Northeast-10 championship game, will take on the winner of Saturday's first round game between host C.W. Post (14-3) and Adelphi (15-2).

C.W. Post lost its East Coast Conference finale, and the conference title, to Dowling on Saturday. Post defeated Adelphi, 13-11, in overtime on April 28.

Rollins is enjoying the best season in program history and was undefeated before falling to Regis in its final regular season game.

Rollins will face the winner of Saturday's West Chester (14-3) at Limestone (17-1) first round game.

Limestone's only loss came way back on Feb. 22, to Rollins by one goal.

West Chester fell victim to Bloomsburg's Cinderella run in the PSAC semifinals Friday, losing to the Huskies for the second time this season, 14-11.

Limestone defeated West Chester, 10-9, in last season's South Region final.
