Connecticut coach Nancy Stevens, the winningest coach in field hockey history, finally won an NCAA championship when the Huskies defeated Duke 2-0 in the championship game Sunday. The Huskies beat North Carolina in Friday's semifinals to get to the title game, while Duke knocked off top-seeded Maryland in its semifinal. 

Shippensburg (Division II) and Bowdoin (Division III) also hoisted trophies at Old Dominion University's L.R. Hill Sports Complex, which played host to all three championship games.
