Men’s D-III

Northwest DIII

1. Lewis & Clark*

Lewis & Clark was dominant and took advantage of a tired Whitman (who had just won 13-12 in semis over Puget Sound) to take the Northwest DIII crown and a spot at Nationals with a 13-6 victory. Puget Sound lost to both finalists by just one point (Whitman in semis, Lewis & Clark in pool play).

1. Puget Sound*

Puget Sound dominated the five team field to take the bid to DIII Nationals.

OHIO VALLEY

Men’s D-I

Ohio Valley Dev

As expected, Colorado and Colorado State advanced to Regionals with little resistance. Colorado beat CSU 11-7 to win the Conference.

Women’s D-III

1. Rice*

SoCal

1. UC Santa Barbara
2. Cal Poly SLO
3. UC San Diego

A very exciting SoCal Conferences sets up what should be a thrilling Southwest Regional. UCSB took home the top spot with a one point win, 14-13, over Cal Poly SLO in the final. Both UCSD and San Diego State played well; UCSD almost upset SLO in semis and SDSU beat SLO in pool play.

Women’s D-I
