While we cover our fair share of non-major sports here, one thing we don't follow much are the club sports. Some of Pitt's teams are pretty good, actually, and on occasion, even excellent.
The women's club lacrosse team is one such program and recently proved they are the best around, winning a national championship. The team defeated No. 15 Boston College, 12-11 in the final game of the WCLA tournament, capping a nearly perfect season. The Panthers were the top seed in the field and lost only one game all season long.
Boston College pulled off two huge upsets on their way to reaching the final, knocking off No. 2 Florida and No. 3 Ohio State at the event.
Big congrats on an incredible season for the program. The club sports don't get a ton of credit, but something as extraordinary a championship season doesn't happen every day and certainly warrants some recognition.
