Maryland wins 2017 NCAA Women’s Lacrosse Tournament national title
— Maryland Terrapins (@umterps) May 28, 2017
It was the 13th NCAA Tournament title for Maryland — the Terrapins also won the AIAW title in 1981 — which has been one of the most dominant programs in college sports. Maryland has won three of the last four women’s college lacrosse titles, and coach Cathy Reese’s program has been to every Final Four since 2009.
Attacker Caroline Steele had 6 goals and an assist to lead the top-seeded Terrapins, who outscored the Eagles 11-8 in the second half.
Maryland’s men’s lacrosse program will look to complete a Terrapins sweep on Monday. The men play Ohio State for the national championship at 1 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
