LEXINGTON, Ky. – The UK women’s soccer team closed out its regular season Friday night with a 4-2 win against Vanderbilt in Nashville, Tenn. Today they learned their fate in the 2011 Southeastern Conference soccer tournament in Orange Beach, Ala. next week.

Entering the tournament as the six-seed, Kentucky (13-6-0, 6-5-0 SEC) will take on the Tennessee Lady Vols (14-5-0, 7-4-0) in the quarterfinal round of the tournament on Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. ET.

UK defeated Tennessee earlier this season in Lexington, 1-0 in double-overtime pushing the all-time record between the two schools to 11-9-0 in Tennessee’s favor.
