Gettysburg’s NCAA History
Gettysburg is making its ninth NCAA Division III Tournament appearance in program history (1992, 1993, 1995, 1997-99, 2001, 2019). The Bullets advanced to the national quarterfinals for the first time in program history back in 1997, where they finished with an overall record of 16-4-2. The 2019 season marked the first time in 20 years that both the Gettysburg men’s and women’s soccer teams competed on the national stage in the same season. The Bullets were one of a record five Centennial Conference teams to make the national tournament this season.

Kean, who claimed the New Jersey Athletic Conference Championship last weekend, will be making its 16th appearance and first since 2010 to the national tournament.

Kean defeated Ohio Wesleyan University 3-1, finishing with an overall record of 18-6-1.
This will be the first-ever meeting between Gettysburg and Kean in men’s soccer.
