ABILENE, Texas – Hardin-Simmons' women's soccer team beat Mary Hardin-Baylor 3-0 to claim its 15th straight American Southwest Conference title in front of a jam-packed HSU Soccer Complex on Sunday afternoon.
"I am so proud of this team, they come in and put in the work and now is when the rewards for all of that work start to come in," said HSU head coach Marcus Wood. "It is never easy and Barry has done a great job getting their program to this level. They are a very talented team."
The Cowgirls struck first in the 25th minute when senior Evan Pipkin finished off a shot in front of the box on a scramble.
Kessler added a second goal in the 53rd minute to give the Cowgirls a 3-0 lead.
The Cowgirls are now 19-0 and will learn their NCAA Tournament destination on Monday at noon on NCAA.com. UMHB is now 16-3-1 and will need an at-large berth into the NCAA Tournament to extend its season.
