In NCAA Division II two programs took home their first ever national title as the Wingate University Bulldogs won the men’s National Championship and the Western Washington Vikings won the women’s.

Wingate University Bulldogs won the first national title in program and conference history.

MENS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

The top ranked Wingate University Bulldogs won the first national title in program and conference history. Wingate has proved to be a dominant team all season and this was especially true during the tournament. They have held onto the #1 ranking in every poll since October 18 and outscored their opponents during the NCAA tournament 9-0. They finished off an almost perfect 19-1 season with a national championship as they took down fourth ranked Charleston (WV) 2-0.

WOMENS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

The Western Washington Vikings earned their first ever national title in program history with a 3-2 victory over three-time defending champion Grand Valley State. It was a hard-fought game with two very talented teams going head to head. Junior Emily Webster sealed the deal for Western Washington with a nice free kick executed in the top right corner to give the Vikings a 3-2 edge in the 76th minute of play. The Vikings finished a record breaking season with a national championship and the longest winning streak in conference history (24).

NCAA Division III National Champions

In NCAA Division III 90 minutes wasn’t enough as both the men’s and women’s national championship games went to overtime. In two tight match ups Washington St. Louis won the women’s national title and Tufts took home the men’s. 

MENS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Tufts won their second national championship in just three years after defeating Calvin 1-0 in double overtime. The only goal of the game was scored in the second overtime by Junior Tyler Kulcsar as he flicked in a corner kick from teammate Kevin Halliday. The overtime goal gave the Tufts Jumbos, Head Coach Josh Shapiro and 13 players from the 2014 team their second national championship.

WOMENS NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

Double overtime wasn’t enough for the women’s national championship match as Washington St. Louis outlasted Messiah in Penalty Kicks. The game ended in a 1-1 tie after 110 minutes of play. Washington St. Louis eventually took home the national title after defeating Messiah 5-4 in a shootout victory.

Congratulations go out to all College soccer players on finishing the season and big congratulations to the 2016 National Champions!
