Goal! Blunt, McCaskill Honor University of Central Missouri Champion Women’s Soccer Team

Missouri Senators introduce resolution congratulating team on record-setting season

WASHINGTON – Missouri U.S. Senators Roy Blunt and Claire McCaskill introduced a resolution in the United States Senate honoring the University of Central Missouri women’s soccer team on their NCAA Division II championship and undefeated season.

“The Central Missouri Jennies kicked it into high gear this season, finishing the year with a perfect record and earning the NCAA Division II title,” said Blunt. “Missourians are very proud of the hard work the Jennies put in to accomplish their record-setting season, and we wish them the best as they get ready to defend their title next year.”

 “The Jennies’ record-setting season and championship victory are accomplishments that make all of Missouri proud,” McCaskill said. “The kind of grit, skill, and determination it takes to not only win a national championship, but to do so with a perfect record to boot, is rare and remarkable.”

The University of Central Missouri women’s soccer team completed an undefeated season with a 26-0 record, setting a new NCAA Division II women’s soccer record for wins in a season, and tying the single-season record of 21 shut-outs. This is the first national championship in program history.
