Miami Shores, Florida … The Barry University women's soccer team continued its national dominance in 1993, winning its second consecutive NCAA Division II National Championship. It was Barry's third title in five years and its sixth straight trip to the NCAA Final Four.
Barry forged a 17-1 record and spent most of the year as the top-ranked team in the nation. Barry's only loss came in the third game of the year to Florida International, which went on to reach the NCAA Division I quarterfinals.
The Buccaneers responded by winning 15 consecutive games on their way to the national title. The string of victories was the longest in Barry history, breaking the old record of 13 set by the Bucs' first national championship team in 1989.
Barry played its best game of the year in the National Championship game at Buccaneer Field. The Bucs won 2-0 and outshot Cal Poly San Luis Obispo 21-3.
Amy Burrill provided the home crowd with excitement when her 28-yard half-volley reached the upper left corner of the net at 11:59. The Bucs added an insurance goal at 56:03, when Michelle Richie's cross from the left side was redirected into the net by a Mustang.
Burrill was named the Defensive MVP, and Janna Schimmels, Erin Jaeger, Heather Jaeger, and Jennifer Strong were named to the All-Tournament Team.
Schimmels concluded the year with a national best 0.38 goals against average and 10.81 shutouts, including shutouts in both the semifinal and championship matches. On the season, Barry outscored its opponents 56-7.
