NCAA Champions

The 1992 Herons opened with a five-game winning streak, with three of the wins in overtime. Bloomsburg won a double-overtime battle to end the run, but that would be the last taste of defeat for HWS that season. The Herons won 10 straight games, culminating with a 1-0 shutout of F&M. William Smith added two more clean sheets in the NYSWCAA tournament to move into the final, where they beat Oneonta in double overtime to advance to the NCAAs where they were the top seed. A 1-0 win over WPI, the only undefeated team in the nation, set up a third meeting with Ithaca, which they won 2-1 to advance to the semifinals. A 2-1 win over Salisbury moved the Herons to the final, where they shut out Trenton State 1-0 to win their first NCAA championship. Ann Lynch, Melanie Nelson, and Manuela Martin earned All-American honors.
