NCAA DIVISION III WOMEN: Messiah does the double again
December 8th, 2008 8AM

MOST READ

MOST COMMENTED

Messiah gained revenge for its loss to Wheaton (Ill.) in last year's NCAA Division III Tournament final with a 5-0 victory in this year's final that denied the Thunder a three-peat.

Tournament  Erin Hench had two goals and an assist in the final for Messiah, which also won the D3 men's title for its second men's and women's double in the last four years.

Kacie Klynstra was named the tournament's top defender and won the battle with her twin sister, Kari, who started for Wheaton.

Another twin of note for Messiah was all-tournament selection Amanda Naeher, who finished the season with 33 goals. Her twin sister, Alyssa, was the starting goalie for the USA in its 2-1 win over North Korea in Sunday's Under-20 Women's World Cup final in Chile.

The Falcons scored an average of four goals a game in their five NCAA Tournament wins.
