Northwestern's Spring Sports

Most people on Northwestern's campus are obsessed with the football team's return to prominence in 2007 or the men's basketball team's repeated disappointments, year after year. And don't get me started on the awful women's basketball team. Yet, so many fans have no idea that two of the country's best teams in their respective sport reside right here in Evanston. Northwestern's Womens Lacrosse team is not only #1 in the country, and winners of 11 straight games, but they also happen to be the 2-time defending national champions. In addition, Northwestern's softball team is ranked 7th in the country and is the defending national runner up from 2006. Despite their recent struggles, they are still in contention for the regular season Big Ten Championship. It would behoove any REAL Northwestern sports fan to make their way out to the Lakefill and Sharon J. Drysdale Field to enjoy the great competition these collegiate powers have to offer. GO WILDCATS!
