Messiah Falcons National Champions
For both the 11th time in program history and the first time in four years, the Messiah Falcons are National Champions once again.
The Falcons fell behind less than two minutes into the NCAA Division III National Championship on Saturday, but they scored twice in the first-half and put together an overall classic performance to capture the 11th title in program history, 2-1 over North Park. The title completed a 24-2 campaign for the Falcons that matched the program record for single-season wins, and it also made Messiah 11-for-11 in title game appearances.
Messiah's 11 National Championships is second in the NCAA only to the Division I UNC women's team, which has 21 titles.
