NCAA Quarterfinals

The 1982 Diplomats opened up with a pair of wins before a 2-0 loss to Division I Ursinus. Three more wins were followed by a loss to Lafayette and a 3-3 tie against Elizabethtown. That stretch ignited a six-game win streak with four of them by shutout to close the regular season. A pair of wins in the conference tournament followed; first beating Etown 1-0 and then a win over Drew to claim the title sent the Diplomats to the NCAA tournament. F&M defeated Salem State in the quarters before falling to eventual champion Ithaca in the semifinals. A win over Denison gave the Diplomats the third place trophy. Leanne McFalls, Sandy Swope, Donna Zaccaria and Patty Reich earned All-American honors that season.
