AIAW Runners-Up

The 1980 Bears opened up with a 3-0-1 start before a loss to Iowa ended the 16-game unbeaten streak that started the previous season. Undaunted, the Bears started a 15-game streak that saw them post 11 shutouts and outscore opponents 48-6. A loss to UMSL in the round-robin MAIAW tournament broke the streak, but the Bears still won the tournament and advanced to the Region VI tournament. There, SWMS outscored opponents 20-5, posting four straight victories and advancing to the AIAW national championships. In Edwardsville, the Bears raced into the finals with three wins and an aggregate score of 9-0 before falling to LaSalle 3-2.
