[NCAA DIVISION II WOMEN] Grand Valley State capped a record-setting season when it claimed its second straight NCAA Division II women's championship on Saturday afternoon with a 4-0 victory over UC San Diego.

The Lakers got goals from four different players -- Erin Mruz, Megan Brown, Jaleen Dingledine and Kayla Addison -- to finish the 2010 season with a record of 22-1-2.

Grand Valley State set an NCAA Division II record for shutouts in a season with 21 and held opponents to just five goals this season. Grand Valley State outscored opponents by a 93-5 margin this season and set a tournament record with 17 goals.

GVSU's Jenna Wenglinski was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Defensive Player for the second straight year, while Ashley Botts was named the tournament's Most Outstanding Offensive Player. Also joining them on the All-Tournament team were Brown and Dingledine.

"This was a great year for us and we wanted to make sure we peaked at the right time and we did," said Laker coach David DiIanni. "Soccer sometimes is about getting on a roll and we have been the last two months. We are excited to bring another national championship to Grand Valley State along with the women's cross country team. We are very proud to wear the Grand Valley State name and logo and very thankful for all the support we have received from the Grand Valley State family."
