North Carolina in driver's seat for dynasties
By Lizzie Haldane
Mia Hamm led North Carolina to four of its NCAA womens' soccer championships.
Connecticut won its eighth women’s NCAA basketball title on Tuesday night to tie Tennessee for the most by a school. But the two dominant women’s basketball programs aren’t even close to matching the dynasty in women’s soccer. If you combine the trophies won by Tennessee and UConn (16), they still have a long way to go to match the 21 titles won by the North Carolina women’s soccer program. The Tar Heels, who are the reigning NCAA champions, once won nine straight from 1986 to 1994. The NCAA has been awarding championships in both sports since 1982.
