Lady Blue Jays advance, will host SLIAC Tournament championship

The top-seeded Westminster College Lady Blue Jays will play for the championship of the St. Louis Intercollegiate Athletic Conference postseason tournament after demolishing No. 4 Webster University 69-34 in Friday night’s semifinals at Westminster.

The Lady Blue Jays (21-4) — who captured their second straight SLIAC regular-season title — will face No. 2 seed Eureka (Ill.) College (21-4) for the tournament championship at 7 p.m. Saturday at Westminster. The Red Devils advanced with a 63-56 victory over No. 3 seed Fontbonne University in Friday night’s other semifinal.

Saturday night’s winner earns the SLIAC’s automatic bid to the NCAA Division III national tournament.

Westminster swept Eureka during the regular season. The Lady Blue Jays prevailed 80-67 on Jan. 7 at Eureka, then defeated the Red Devils 82-71 on Feb. 18 in Fulton.
