We Are the Champions

Outfielder Brianna Keenan, A15 (left), and shortstop Emily Beinecke, A13, exult after the Tufts women’s softball team claimed the 2013 NCAA Division III National Championship on May 20. The final game, played at the University of Wisconsin–Eau Claire against the SUNY-Cortland Red Dragons, was a nail-biter, but the tide turned for the Jumbos in the bottom of the fifth inning, when they racked up three runs to erase the Red Dragons’ two-run lead. After that, they never allowed their opponents to score even once, winning six to five. “I couldn’t be prouder of our team,” said head coach Cheryl Milligan, J98, G01.
