2006 NCAA DIVISION I CHAMPIONSHIPS
May 18-29 at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California

It wasn't very shocking when Stanford's Theresa Logar clinched the point to win the women's team championship for the third year in a row, but no one expected it to be the University of Miami who would be battling them in the finals. Of course, Miami's run was due in large part to their new No. 1 player -- transfer Audra Cohen -- however, all of Head Coach Paige Yaroshuk's players really stepped up and deserved that place in the final.

For Head Coach Adam Steinberg it was a four year project, but Pepperdine got their first NCAA team title. It was certainly a team effort and ended Georgia's year-long winning streak. That team included Ivor Lovrak, a transfer from Baylor who had already known how to get it done since he was also on the Bear's winning 2004 team.

Last year it was a team title and this year it was the singles crown for UCLA's Benjamin Kohlloeffel. After defeating Virginia's Somdev Devvarman in the finals the German became the first Bruin since current Head Coach Billy Martin (1975) to win the event.

Suzi Babos gave the University of California it first NCAA women's singles trophy after eliminating the University of Southern California's Lindsey Nelson. The Cal sophomore was only ranked No. 28 before the tournament, making her the lowest ranked player to ever win.

The team event may have been disappointing for the University of Illinois, but they didn't go home empty-handed as Kevin Anderson and Ryan Rowe gave first year Head Coach Brad Dancer's Illini their third NCAA doubles title. The duo -- who came as close as match point down to losing in the first round -- finished with an 11-match winning streak. The tournament ended with the final trophy going to a sixth school as Cristelle Grier and Alexis Prousis of Northwestern were the 2006 NCAA women's doubles champions. They are the first Wildcats since 1987 to win the doubles title and may have had some "coaching" from their leader -- Claire Pollard won the title in 1989 while playing for Mississippi State.
