PSU Women's Soccer: 2015 National Champions

Penn State players celebrate a goal during their NCAA tournament second round game against Boston University.
The Penn State women's soccer team won the national championship this past weekend.  The Nittany Lions, who finished the season 22-3-2, and who also won the Big Ten regular season and tournament titles, dominated their opponents through most of the NCAA tournament.  Penn State kept a clean sheet in each of their six NCAA tournament games, outscoring their oppents by a combined 20-0 margin.

Raquel Rodriguez (picured here during a game earlier this season against Hofstra) scored the game winning goal against Duke in the National Championship game.

Nittany Lion goalkeeper Britt Eckerstrom was an instrumental part of a Penn State defefense that didn't surrender a goal during the NCAA tournament.
