The Pioneer women, who are the number-two seed in the field, will play third-seeded Queens University of Charlotte on Saturday at 9 a.m. Queens defeated sixth-seeded Coker 5-1 in a first-round matchup on Thursday.

The top-seeded Pioneer men will face fifth-seeded Newberry in the semifinals on Saturday at 1 p.m. Newberry earned a 5-2 win over fourth-seeded Anderson in Thursday's first-round action.
