[CONFERENCE WATCH] Among the women's regular-season champions crowned on Sunday were Texas A&M, winner of its Big 12 showdown with Oklahoma State, UC Irvine, which clinched its first Big West championship, UNC Greensboro, winner of five straight Southern Conference titles, and CAA champion Hofstra, which extended its winning streak to 16 games.

BIG EAST. With a 2-0 win over St. John's, Marquette completed the conference portion of its season unbeaten and untied at 11-0-0 for the first time in program history. The Golden Eagles, the American Division champions, become just the third program in conference history to win all of its games. Goalkeeper Natalie Kulla earned her eighth shutout of the season, 30th of her career, to become MU's all-time shutouts leader. Notre Dame, which tied Georgetown, 1-1, to finish conference play at 9-0-2, had already clinched the National Division.

BIG 12. Texas A&M beat Oklahoma State, 1-0, in a top-of-the-table clash that have the Aggies the Big 12 title. Rachel Shipley's early penalty kick was enough to extending A&M’s winning streak to eight matches. “After two years, I’m glad that the girls won our trophy back,” said head coach G Guerrieri. “It feels good. It’s a big relief. Sometimes when you win championships, you think you’re always going to win them, and when you’re not the champions, you wonder if you’re ever going to do it again.”

BIG WEST. UC Irvine, winner of 12 straight games, won its first Big West regular-season title with a 1-0 win at UC Riverside Sunday night. Junior CoCo Goodson's second-half score in the 52nd minute stood up as she scored her second game-winning goal of the week and her fifth of the season. Senior keeper Danielle de Seriere, who had four saves, recorded her UCI single-season record 10th shutout of the year and she became UCI's career leader with 30.

CAA. Hofstra extended its winning streak to 16 games with a 2-0 win over UNC Wilmington on Sunday afternoon, clinching the regular-season title outright. Tiffany Yovino and Salma Tarik scored for the Pride, who will host the CAA Tournament on Nov. 5-7.

SOUTHERN. Freshman Kristen Schmidbauer's second-half goal was all UNC Greensboro needed to beat Appalachian State, 1-0, on Sunday, making the Spartans the first team in Southern Conference history to win five consecutive outright regular-season titles. The victory was UNCG's 12th straight, matching the school record set in 2007.

SUN BELT. Denver won its fifth Sun Belt title when it beat UALR, 3-2, on freshman Kaitlin Bast's golden goal. The win was Denver’s record-setting 16th consecutive conference victory, dating to last season. Freshman midfielder Nicholette DiGiacomo DiGiacomo’s two assists gave her 14 on the season to tie the Pioneer record set in 2002.

Elsewhere ...
