Women's Soccer Team Competes In NCAA Final

A magnificent run by the Women's Soccer team came to an abrupt halt in the 2003 NCAA Championship game December 7, when they ran into a University of North Carolina squad that had stopped every team they played during the 2003 campaign.

The unseeded Huskies, who finished the season 15-6-3, surprised everyone but themselves as they rolled through the first five rounds of the tournament, beating Boston University, Central Connecticut, Michigan, Brigham Young, and Florida State universities along the way.

In the end, though, North Carolina (27-0) was too much, beating the Huskies 6-0. Through the six tournament games, the Tar Heels beat their opponents by a total score of 32-0.

It was North Carolina's 17th national title in the last 22 years.

Meanwhile, competing in Federal Way, Wash., last weekend, the Men's Swimming team finished fourth at the prestigious U.S. Open, a school record.
