University of Chicago's Julianne Sitch first female coach to lead NCAA men's soccer team to title

University of Chicago soccer coach Julianne Sitch has done what no one has done in NCAA history — she became the first woman to lead a men's soccer team to a national title.

The first-year coach led the Maroons to a 2-0 win over Williams College in the the NCAA Division III men's soccer national championship Saturday, capping the UChicago's undefeated 22-0-1 season with the program's first ever title.

"The credit goes to the team — I mean, these guys have never had a female coach before, and they embraced me as one of their own. And for me, that will forever be a grateful moment," Sitch said after the victory, according to the university.
