[WOMEN'S CUP COLLEGE] For the second year in a row, Stanford came into the NCAA Division I women's final top-ranked and unbeaten. And once again, it came home without the title. Freshman Adriana Leon's goal in the 62nd minute gave Notre Dame a 1-0 win over the Cardinal to become the lowest seed to ever win the national title.

The Irish won at defending national champion North Carolina (4-1) and Oklahoma State (2-0) to advance to the Women's College Cup, where they beat Ohio State (1-0) in the semifinals.

Stanford went into the final with a 23-1-2 record and an attack that had scored two or more goals in every game since its 1-1 tie with Boston College in their season opener, but the Irish defense locked down the Cardinal.

Notre Dame is the first team besides North Carolina to win as many as three Division I women's national titles. The Irish also won in 1995 and 2004.
