Pitt women’s soccer defeated Memphis Sunday night 3-0 in the Sweet 16, scoring three goals in the second half to ensure a place in the Elite Eight for the first time in program history.
The win was another great moment for Pitt fans this weekend. Not only did women’s soccer also beat No. 2 Arkansas on Friday night, but football finally won with a victory over Boston College on Thursday for Senior Night, men’s basketball demolished Jacksonville Friday night, volleyball came back and reverse swept No. 4 Louisville in front of a record crowd at the Petersen Events Center on Saturday and Pitt Wrestling defeated in-state rival No. 17 Lehigh Sunday afternoon.
Pitt fans took to Twitter to celebrate the great win and the great weekend overall. Pitt women’s soccer will face No. 1 Florida State in the Elite Eight in Tallahassee, Friday at 5:30 p.m.

Mars grad Ellie Coffield almost drilled another free kick for Pitt, but she’ll have to settle for an assist after banging this heat-seeker off the crossbar.
Coffield, Schupansky and the Panthers win 3-0 to advance to the Elite Eight for the first time ever! https://t.co/OroPFjhuuJ

Pitt advances to their first NCAA Quarterfinal ever.
It was a miracle for WSOC to win a conference game 5 years ago.
Now, they’re 3 wins away from the school’s first national title in a team sport since 1976 and first NCAA title in history.

Pitt since Thursday:
– FB beat Boston College
– MBB won a game by 51
– VB knocked off No. 4 Louisville
– WRES beat No. 17 Lehigh
– WSOC advanced to the Elite 8 for the first time
MSOC lost in the NCAA Championship 1st round & WBB lost to Duq, but all in all, a good run

What more can we say about this @Pitt_WSOC squad! They keep raising the bar and writing more chapters in program history.

I worked tonight so I wasn't able to watch the @Pitt_WSOC match. But just turned it on and saw it's 3-0 Pitt up on Memphis. I can't believe it, but also can, that they're going to the Elite 8! So proud of this team.
Congratulations, @CoachWaldrum & Team!

The ACC somehow only received 5 NCAA Tournament bids this year.
4 of those teams are now in the Elite Eight.

A dominant performance tonight. Just incredible to think that this team is in the Elite Eight. I'm so proud to support this program, this coaching staff and this group of players. #H2P https://t.co/34RrUc7ndR
