Photo Gallery: Limestone at Adelphi (NCAA Women)

Consider Joe Spallina the Godfather of Division II women's lacrosse. Four years ago he made his first recruiting class an offer it couldn't refuse. "Coach promised me four national championships," said junior Tara Gangarossa. A few seconds later junior Erica DeVito added: "I was also promised four national championships." So far, so good on that offer. Adelphi captured its third straight NCAA Division II championship Sunday, defeating Limestone at home 17-4. It broke the record for largest margin of victory in the title game, set by Adelphi two years ago. © Lee Weissman
