Weekend Wrap: December 3
For the 39th time--easily the most for any Atlantic Coast Conference athletic department--North Carolina claimed an NCAA championship this weekend. For the 21st time, it came in women's soccer. After nail-biting wins for most of the postseason, Sunday's game was a little unexpected. The Tar Heels got an early second-half goal to go up 2-1, and eventually overpowered the Nittany Lions, 4-1. It was fun to hear from Hanna Gardner, who scored that go-ahead goal, right after the game, because it was obvious it still hadn't quite sunk in.
The coolest thing of the weekend was also related to women's soccer. A host of Tar Heel players and alums from across the entire athletic department put together a video wishing the Tar Heels good luck. The volleyball team looks like they'd be fun to hang out with:
Gerald Sensabaugh had six tackles for the Cowboys.
Zach Brown had five tackles for the Titans.
Da'Norris Searcy had three tackles for the Bills.
Julius Peppers had four tackles and a sack for the Bears.
Greg Little had four catches for the Browns.
Connor Barth hit all three of his field goals for the Bucs.
