QUICK LINK: USTFCCCA NCAA Division II All-America History

Grand Valley State swept both the men’s and women’s team titles while Marcela Laguera of CSU-Pueblo and Sarah Berger of Grand Valley captured the individual crowns.

The Laker women took home the national championship for the fifth time in the past seven years (and sixth overall), while the men won their first title in program history. It was the second straight year that the men’s and women’s team titles have been swept by the same program with Adams State accomplishing the feat last season.

Grand Valley State’s women easily won the team title as it scored 41 points, one of the lowest totals in recent memory. The men had to hold off a late surge by Colorado Mines, but did so by the final score of 89-99.

No men’s programs placed all five scored athletes in the top-40, but three women’s teams did: Grand Valley State, UMary and Adams State. It should come as no surprise that the Lakers, the Marauders and the Grizzlies all finished in the top-3 (GVSU won the title; U-Mary finished 2nd; Adams State was 3rd).

Three programs had four All-American athletes: The women’s team from Western Colorado and the men’s squads from Grand Valley State and Western Colorado.

Three schools had at least three All-American athletes: The women’s program of Alaska Anchorage and the men’s teams from Chico State and Western Colorado.

Grand Valley State led all programs with a combined nine All-American athletes.

The Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference (RMAC) had the most out of any conference with 24 honored athletes between the men’s and women’s championship races. In total, 18 conferences had at least one athlete earn an All-America award.

When you break it down by class, upperclassmen ruled the list as 32 seniors and 25 juniors earned All-America distinction. Sophomores made up 13 of the selections while 10 freshmen were honored.
