Many congratulations to the Lady Tar Heels on finishing a perfect 24-0 season with a 3-0 victory over Penn State in the finals of the DI Field Hockey championship. This is the fifth title for the program and coach Karen Shelton, who is second in all time DI NCAA field hockey championships. Freshman Katelyn Falgowski led off the scoring, with senior captain Rachel Dawson and sophomore Danielle Forword adding insurance goals. Each of these players, along with sophomore Illse Davids were named to the all-tournament team.
North Carolina also posts an 88% graduation rate in women's sports 'Other' than Basketball and Cross-Country/Track, and beaten finalist Penn State comes in at 93%. Beaten semi-finalists Connecticut and Wake Forest round out the top four at 76% and 82% respectively. Whats going on here? Why can't the schools with lower standards take down the eggheads?
