Kick for the Cure on Senior Day
- Wake Forest's match with Kansas will serve as its Senior Day. Seniors Jackie Logue, Kristen Meier, Marisa Park, Shareen Sutherland, India Winford and Alisha Woodson will be honored in a ceremony before the match.
- The match against the Jayhawks will also be Wake Forest's Kick for the Cure game. The team will wear pink jerseys that will be sold in a silent auction during the match and a bake sale will also be held with proceeds from both events to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation. The first 500 fans in attendance will receive pink rally towels.
- Head coach Tony da Luz won his 200th game at Wake Forest last week in the Demon Deacons' 4-0 victory over Clemson. Da Luz is only the 10th coach across all sports to win 200 games at Wake.
- Making the first start of her career last Sunday against Clemson, freshman Jenai Davidson scored her first two career goals. Davidson is one of three freshman to score this season for the Demon Deacons.
- Wake Forest has been one of the best defensive teams in the ACC, allowing only seven goals all year and holding a 0.53 goals against average - both numbers that rank as the second-best in the conference behind Florida State.
- Goalkeeper Aubrey Bledsoe is tied for first in the conference with six shutouts this season. Bledsoe has shutout four of Wake Forest's last seven opponents, and also made fives saves in the 4-0 win over Clemson but was not credited with a shutout as backup Sara Small came on to play the last five minutes.. Her six shutouts are already tied for the sixth-highest single season total in school history. Last year, she set the Wake Forest single-season record with 14 clean sheets, and her 23 total shutouts are the most-ever for a Demon Deacon `keeper.
- Kristen Meier and Kim Marshall are tied with Katie Stengel for the team scoring lead with three goals this season. Meier and Marshall's three-goal totals are both individual career-highs.
- Virginia leads the all-time series with Wake Forest 13-6-2, though the two teams have split the last five meetings 2-2-1.
- In the last game between the two teams, the Demon Deacons shut out the Cavaliers 2-0 last season at Spry Stadium behind goals by Ally Berry and Jackie Logue.
Wake Forest and Kansas will be meeting for the first time.
