...last night the men's basketball team of Babson College (Wellesely, MA) defeated Augustana College (Ill.), 79-78, to win its first ever NCAA Division III Basketball National Championship.
And the Lord Jeffs of Amherst College (Amherst, MA) saw their women's team finish the season 33 - 0 defeating cross-state NESCAC rival Tufts University(Medford, MA) 52 - 29. The Jumbos of Tufts finished a wonderful season at 30 - 3, but their 3 losses were to Amherst -- in the regular season, the NESCAC Championship and the NCAA Division 3 National Championship game.
The Amherst Head Coach -- G.P. Gromacki -- just finished his 10th season with the team. His Amherst record... a gravity-defying 295 wins against just 24 losses (.925 winning percentage). He has made the NCAA Tournament all 10 years, reaching at least the Sweet 16 every year and securing 2 national championships along the way.
