On May 17, 62 seconds away from defeat, Franklin & Marshall’s Cat Serpe ’12 streaked into the Salisbury eight-meter fan and dumped the ball inside the right post.

Serpe’s shot salvaged the season and sent the 2009 NCAA Division III National Championships into overtime. Less than three minutes later, Blake Hargest ’10 cashed in on the second life to deliver the Diplomats (21-1) an 11-10 win over the Sea Gulls (20-2) and their second NCAA Championship in three years.

The eight seniors on the team, who could not attend Saturday’s Commencement ceremony because of the championship playoffs, received diplomas from President Fry, who drove to Virginia with Dean of the College Kent Trachte to watch the game.
