Grand Valley State rolls into another Final Four, trying to win its third straight national title. The Lakers haven’t lost since the first game of the season, and in the NCAA tournament beat Quincy and Bellarmine before advancing on penalty kicks after a draw with Central Missouri. GVSU has only faced one of the other teams in the NCAA Semifinal. The Lakers have a 1-0-1 record against Columbus State.
They’ve Done It Just About Every Other Year
Grand Valley won last year. And the year before. And in 2010. And in 2009. Their stadium, in Allendale, Mich., is adorned with championship banners that serve as reminders that this is the dominant program in women’s soccer at the D2 level right now. It would almost be shocking if they didn’t win.
