Their women’s team was so dominant that they more than doubled the score of runner-up Drury, 707.5 to 345. Their point total is the second most by a winning Division II women’s team, trailing only Truman’s 733 in 2002.

The Queens men were equally dominant, scoring 606 points to second-place Delta State’s 364.5.

Indian River’s men, scoring 1,297 points, have now won the national title forty-five consecutive years! It’s the longest unbroken U.S. championship winning streak in any sport at the collegiate level. Iowa Central claimed runner-up with 662 points, well ahead of Southwestern Oregon at 548.

IRSC’s women took their 37th straight title with 1,277 points, ahead of South Georgia (567) and Iowa Central (521).
