Wash U : Division III Basketball Champs

Many of my friends in StL went to the local Washington University.

This year, they won the Division III basketball division! (For the first time)

Click here for the article.... Quoteth (to understand the priority of this for an academic, research-oriented school that is more commonly ranked at the top for medical research):

Washington University security cars escorting the bus blared sirens to announce the team's arrival Sunday night.

Senior Troy Ruths was the first to step off the bus, holding the national championship trophy over his head. The crowd — about 30 fans — went wild.

Great post. As a D3 school, sports is not a priority, but the Men's team deserves congrats. However, it is important to keep in mind that the Women's team has won the championship 4 times and the Women's Volleyball team 9 times.... just to name a few. Go Bears!
