Salisbury Women’s Lacrosse Wins National Championship
May 20, 2013
OWINGS MILLS, Md. – The No. 2 Salisbury University women's lacrosse team toppled the No. 1 team in the nation, Trinity (Conn.) College, 12-5, in the NCAA Division III National Championship Game on Sunday afternoon. The win avenged the Sea Gulls' loss to the Bantams in the 2012 title game.
This is the 2nd National Championship for the SU women's lacrosse team in the past 4 years.
"I thought it was a great game," Head Coach Jim Nestor said. "Today, what we've work on all week, leading up to this weekend, it paid off with all the hard work. The players went with the game plan to a 'T', and they executed exactly the way we wanted them to. Defensively, I thought we played great. Ashton, again, was superb, and it really resulted in that win today."
Salisbury finishes the season with a program record 23 wins. Ashton Wheatly was named the championship's Most Outstanding Player. Lauren Feusahrens, Maggie Roundy, Halie Baer and Meghan Toomey were all named to the All-Tournament Team.
