NCAA Champions

The 2000 Herons fell at home against Messiah 4-3 to open the season, but they never looked back as they rattled off 20 straight wins to claim the NCAA title. A 6-0 defeat of Geneseo started the run, the first of five straight games in which they scored five goals or more. William Smith won 11 more to close out the regular season and move into the NCAA tournament as the top seed, outscoring opponents 67-15 in that run. In NCAAs, a 3-0 win over NEC set up a quarterfinal against Cortland, which the Herons won in a strokeoff. In the semifinals at Salisbury, William Smith defeated the home-standing Sea Gulls 3-1 to move into the finals. A 1-0 defeat of Springfield gave the Herons the national championship. Jessica Dascano, Marjie MacVean, Jackie Hall and Nicole Livingston were named All-Americans.
