Ashland Women Capture NCAA Division II Basketball Crown

Ashland's women's basketball team completed its run for a national title in a 71-56 championship game victory over Dowling (N.Y.), March 29 at San Antonio, Texas.

Kari Dougherty (holding trophy), National Player of the Year for the second consecutive year, led all scorers with 26 points and added 12 rebounds for the victors. Ashland had lost last season's championship game in overtime.

This is the third team NCAA championship won by an AICUO member this academic year, following titles in Division III men's swimming (Kenyon) and Division III football (Mount Union).
