Vanguard University's women's basketball team blazed through another record-setting season, posting an eye-popping 31-1 record and reaching the Final Four at the National Assn. of Intercollegiate Athletics tournament.
"This year will be the benchmark for future Lions teams as we strive on our journey for a national championship," said coach Russ Davis, who was named Golden State Athletic Conference Coach of the Year for the fifth time in his career.
The Lions added a long list of accomplishments to their reputation as a West Coast powerhouse. The team won the GSAC championship for the fifth year in a row and has not lost in conference play since 2005, winning 46 straight games. The Lions have now won more women's basketball conference titles (eight) than any other team in the conference.
