Nesbeth & Florida State Crowned NCAA National Champions
LeiLanni Nesbeth and her No. 1 ranked Florida State (FSU) Women's Soccer teammates for the third time in the last 10 years, won the NCAA National Championship. FSU downed No. 13 BYU Monday evening in Santa Clara in a penalty kick shootout to win the Women’s College Cup.
FSU now has the second-most NCAA titles in the history of the sport and is one of just two teams to ever win three titles in an eight-year span.
Florida State, which lost the 2020 title in a shootout, wouldn’t fall victim to the same fate in 2021. Goalkeeper Cristina Roque came up with saves on the second and fourth BYU PKs and Youjie Zhao sealed the title hitting the final PK to give the Seminoles the title 4-3.
