MOST COMMENTED

[BY THE NUMBERS] With North Carolina's 1-0 victory over Stanford in Sunday's final of the 2009 Women's College Cup, Coach Anson Dorrance became the winningest coach in NCAA Division I history by capturing his 20th title in a single sport.
 
The Tar Heels have now won 20 of the 28 NCAA championships conducted in women's soccer. They also won an AIWA title in 1981.

Tar Heel men's basketball coach Roy Williams, who has won NCAA titles of his own in 2005 and 2009, said, "Anson's accomplishments are incredible and will never be matched.  These championships though are only a part of his greatness.  The standards he sets for each team and each staff every year keeps them from becoming complacent.  He makes the new season challenging again and I don't think he will change.  He is a credit to our school and our coaching profession and I truly admire him."
