Northwestern Lacrosse in National Championship Game... Again

1

Football's the main focus of OTE, but it seems worth mentioning when a Big Ten team is appearing in its 7th consecutive national championship game. The championship game against Maryland will appear live on the Big Ten Network today at 4pm Eastern, 3pm Central. For those not familiar with NU women's lacrosse, Coach Kelly Amonte Hiller (the female Pat Fitzgerald, except that she played at Maryland) took a club team to the varsity level in 2002 and proceeded to win national championships in 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, and 2009, and lost the championship game to Maryland in 2010. In the 2011 rematch today, the Terps are heavily favored, but KAH has almost certainly been building her team up to this game all year. Player to watch-- NU junior Shannon Smith, a Tewaaraton Trophy finalist (read: Heisman, winner announced in June), who could probably hold her own in a wrestling match with Dan Persa. Go 'Cats!
