Similar to last year, Northwestern will face North Carolina in the National Championship. Unlike last year, the ‘Cats are hoping to come out on top. No. 2 Northwestern has won 21 straight games, and a win would nicely cap off the collegiate careers of graduate students Peyton Halsey and Alia Marshall and seniors Annabel Skubisz and Lauren Wadas who won the program’s first-ever title in 2021. Meanwhile, No. 1 North Carolina has continued its usual dominance into its first year under 23-year-old head coach Erin Matson.
