Division I Field Hockey Championship: UConn finishes perfect season with national championship
The perfect season is complete: Connecticut is the 2017 Division I Field Hockey national champion.
Sunday, the Huskies entered Trager Stadium in Louisville, Kentucky an unblemished 22-0. They left with that perfect record intact, defeating Maryland 2-1 for their third national championship in the past five years. Charlotte Veitner, the division's top goal scorer, added her 33rd and 34th goals of the season as they were all that UConn needed to hold off the Terrapins.
Maryland ends its season 16-7. The Terrapins had no easy road to the finals, upsetting both No. 2 Duke and No. 3 Michigan along the way. In the end, UConn's top-ranked offense proved too much, as the Huskies are the 2017 national champions.
